We all have to answer to a higher authority. Some of us, though, are a little misguided about who that Higher Authority is… Each week Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic to write a 100 word story about. This week’s topic is seriously humorous or vice versa. But either way, you better get it right.
The Garden of Exxon
A booming voice from above…
Looking up, a small voice replies,
Me? I’m Adam.
What-ever. You’ve been bad. Now leave the garden.
What have I done?
You’ve bitten the apple and have acquired knowledge.
I sorry, but… you’re in the wrong garden.
You’re in the garden of Exxon, not Eden.
Yes, and we already answer to a higher authority.
And who might that be?
Ha. Do not think that they do not ultimately answer to me. Out now, Shaman!
It’s Adam… and this is Exxon.
Hold your tongue before I mistakenly call you Lot.
