It Comes Anytime You Sneeze - a short story by A.B.King

   Once upon a time in a lovely Christian family there lived three kids. James was the oldest, he was 12 years old. Then right after him was Eve, she was 10 years old. Then came the last child everyone nicknamed the baby of the house. His name was John, he wasn’t a baby but he was really young.   There was only one video game console in the house and since all the game disks they had at home were one player games, the boys had to take turns playing it. When one of them plays to the point that his character dies, he would pass the pad to the other brother. It was really painful to each one each time he had to pass the pad to his brother beside him. You can’t imagine how it took the fun out of it.   Eve didn’t care for games. She loved to play with dolls with her friend from next door or talk to her about the new things she had learnt. So Eve normally wasn’t even at home that much whenever she had some free time to play. She was always next door at the neighbors.One day, James brought home a new one player game video game disk that he had been saving up to buy for weeks. James was angry when his little brother immediately rushed out from no where and sat down on the sofa in front of the TV. Of course that meant we would both be playing.   James remained calm but he wished something would just happen that would make his brother leave.   While James sat down to play first, he saw his opportunity when he heard his brother sneeze. He told him it meant that he was about to be sick and that if he doesn’t want to be sick he had better go and lie down and sleep. Whenever he wakes up he would have averted becoming sick.James made up scary stories on the spot about people who didn’t go to sleep right after they sneezed.   In fear John rushed to his bed and slept while James happily played the video game alone.Since that day, anytime John sneezed he went to sleep no matter how much he wanted to do something else.   John suffered like this for months until his sister noticed he always went to bed to sleep right after anytime he sneezed.   Eve asked him about it and he told her what James told him. Eve was mad and right after convincing John that James was lying, she decided that she would teach James a lesson. She hid a recording device they had lying around the house in her pocket. Then she confronted James about what he did. After that, she took what she recorded to Mum.   Now guess who Mum banned from playing any video games for two weeks, and guess who now has the luxury of playing the video games alone for two whole weeks.
The End.

The Body Inside Your Body Is Not Your Body - a poem by Alfred

They say, every woman has the Right to do what she likes with her body/
But the Body inside your Body is not your body/
A baby is not the Mother, And the Mother is not the baby/
A Bentley is not the Driver, And the Driver is not the Bentley/
Your baby is not you, It's just Parked in your Body/
But if your Baby is your body, Why Abort your own body/
Let's not rename Murder, in other to commit Murder/
Let's not rename Genocide, and call it Parental Planning/
Or Planned Parenthood or Family Planning/
What kind of Parental Plan suggests killing the family?/
How can you be Pro-Choice by robbing the baby's choice?/
The decision to Live or Die belongs to the Life involved/
How dare you choose Death without hearing the Baby's voice/
The Pro-Choice movement is Anti-Choice/

Our Boys In Blue - a poem by Alfred

Through Cold or Heat, Through Strength or Pain/
They Carry our Troubles, All Night, All Day/
They Risk their Future, To Keep us Safe/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police, No one would be Safe/
Bodies would paint the Street like Syria Today/
After the West played Chess and won the Game/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police in America, today/
Your Head and Your Body could be in different States/
One Part in Alabama, The Other part Up-State/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
We owe our Lives to Our Boys In Blue/
They carry the weight of the Red, White, and Blue/
And make it a Nation all Nations come to/
Have you said Thanks, To a Cop today?/

Why You Should Share This Post:  Because unlike some people, we Love & Respect those who risk their lives for us everyday.

Madiba Says - a poem by Alfred

Success awaits every man at the top of the hill/
But after she shakes your hands, you see another hill/
New hills grow taller if you pause to sleep/
Success has feet, she can just get up and leave/
A Real Leader must love this people more than he loves himself/
And be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for them/
He must be dead to self, and live for them/
Otherwise he might ruin them while saving himself/
Freedom doesn't mean having no chains on your wrists/
It struts forward to mean liberating others wrists/
So if you don't liberate others you're imprisoned yourself/
The walls are invisible but they are still there/
Education is the most powerful W.M.D/
To destroy the destruction of humanity/
Don't judge me by conquered Mountain Tops/
Judge me by the times I fell and got back up/


The Quotes By Nelson Mandela That Inspired This Poem:
1)  After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
2)  Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice …
