Our Cute Little Friend - by A.B.King



   Mark and Melinda had been married for 6 years. They were both Christians and they both loved the Lord and where partners in their church.

   One day while Mark was still at work, Melinda had come back from work and she was writing a blog on her computer when she heard a small barking sound outside the door. She went out only to met with a little cute puppy that had no collar.

   It was so adorable that Melinda picked it up immediately. The puppy liked Melinda and it started licking her face. Melinda adjusted its distance from her face immediately.

   None of her neighbors had that breed of dog so it certainly didn’t belong to any of them. She figured that she would keep it for the day and then the next day she would take it to the right authorities and see whether she can get to keep it.

   Melinda forgot all about her blog post she had half written and poured out some milk for the dog.

   After the dog happily lapped it up. Melinda played with the dog and enjoyed playing with the dog until her husband came back from work. He wasn’t fond of dogs. He was shocked to see a dog in his house.After a few minutes of a light argument between the couple, Mark consoled himself that his wife would be talking the stray puppy he didn’t like one bit to the authorities the next day. Then finally, the dog would be out of his hair.

   However, 3 weeks later he sat on a couch angrily as he watched Melinda play with the dog. They had let his wife keep the dog.Mark kept his cool on the outside, but on the inside he was boiling. He didn’t know how he could share the house with a dog.

   Later that evening, Melinda told Mark that she would be going out to a friend’s house so he should keep the dog company that it likes to be kept company and hates to be ignored. If nothing else, he should just let the dog fall asleep on his laps. Mark said Ok! Then Melinda walked out the door.

   Mark couldn’t believe what his wife just said. Him? putting a dog on his laps. She can’t be serious. He knew that he said that he would do it, but there was no way in the world he was going to do a thing like that.

   Mark quickly picked up the puppy, put it in a closet upstairs, and went back downstairs to watch TV.

   It didn’t take time before he heard the puppy barking. It barked and barked and barked but it only annoyed Mark. Mark turned up the volume of the TV, if that dog wanted to play and thought that it would play with him; then it has another thing coming.

   Mark ignored the barking until the barking sound got strange. It finally stopped barking and Mark was glad that the little dog had finally figured out that barking won’t do it any good so it had decided to keep quiet. Smart dog.

   After the TV sitcom Mark was watching on TV finished, Mark heard his wife’s car pull up in the drive way. Uh – Oh! he had better get the dog back downstairs and pretend that he had been playing with it.

   Mark ran back upstairs and opened the closet door. He was shocked at what he saw. The dog was dead. It had suffocated. Oh – No! he was dead too. His wife was definitely going to kill him. What is he going to tell his wife? What is he going to do?

   If Mark survives whatever his wife is going to do to him, he would remember next time that a husband should listen to his wife. And when she tells him to do something and he says he would do it; he should actually keep his word and do it.

   Let your wife be able to count on you the same way you want to be able to count on her. 


The End.

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?/

Rather Than Hate The Rich, Become Rich - a poem by Alfred

Crucify the Rich, Burn them at the Stake/
Punish them for succeeding, where the rest of us has failed/
Their Remote controls the State like the TV channels they made/
Only 1 per cent are safe, 99 per cent are slaves/
Occupy the 1 per cent, Hello to Project Eliminate/
We don't need rich people in the world, walk 'em to their grave/
Like Marie Antoinette, and then We Would Eat Cake/
All Rich People are Evil, Greedy, and Really Vain/
Away with Rich people, Let us dig their graves/
They plan to dig ours, I can see it in their ways/
Who needs the Rich to build Banks, Skyscrapers, and Planes/
Who needs the Rich to build Rockets to take us to Outer Space/
Wealth can't create more jobs than poverty makes/
Poverty is what this country needs, take wealth away/
Destroy the Rich to make the world a better place/
I hate Rich people, even though I work all day/
I'm sure it's no so I could be Rich some day/
And if I get Rich I would give it all away/
Because I hate Riches, I'…

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 …
