The Webcomic - a short story by A.B.King

   Once upon a time in the great country called America, there lived a 13 year old Christian boy named Jimmy. He had wonderful parents and cute little baby brother.Jimmy was a good kid so he liked reading, watching educational TV programs and also listening to motivational & business audio podcasts.   One day, Jimmy stumbled upon an interesting audio podcast that spoke volumes to him. The speaker was saying that you don’t have to wait for the future to do what you’ve always wanted to do. You can do it now – you don’t have to wait to make money. You can do it now. It doesn’t matter how young you are; you can still do something to be productive right where you are.Jimmy listened to that podcast over and over again. He felt like the speaker was talking to him personally. He felt like the message was for him. He had connected to it.   Jimmy started looking for a way to be productive. What could he do easily as a 13 year old kid that he could market and make some money, yet it wouldn’t take up most of his time and affect his school work?   Jimmy later remembered a sermon he had once heard that emphasized that your hobbies and talents are a good indicator to know your profession and purpose in life.   Jimmy asked himself, ‘What was it that he loved to do that he did better than anybody else and could make money from doing it?’   Jimmy didn’t have to think very hard, the answer was simple. It was drawing cartoon characters and telling jokes. People made money from drawing cartoons and comedians made money from telling jokes. Jimmy wanted to pick one but later discovered he didn’t have to as the two disciplines come together in comic strips.   That was it. He was going to make a Christian webcomic and make money from selling advertisement space on the website.   Jimmy told his parents about his idea. His father discouraged him but his mother encouraging him.   Since Jimmy was too young to open his own merchant account in a bank for an online business, his mother opened an account for him in her name.   It just made Jimmy’s father object some more. He really didn’t like the idea.   However, Jimmy is bubbling over with enthusiasm. He tells his friends but his friends think he is crazy and disapprove of it, pointing out reason after reason why it’s a good idea.   Jimmy feels a little downcast and goes back to listen to the business podcast & also to God in prayer.   Jimmy asked his Mum to help him with some activities for the business. She said no that it’s his business not hers. Besides the reason she approved of it was so he can learn and also believe that he can do something great without depending on anyone but God.   Eventually, the business kicks off and things are looking interesting. Viewership starts to grow. Things are looking promising and his awesome Mum is cheering him on.   Down the horizon, trouble comes as there are no advertisers. Jimmy’s dad is like I told you so but his Mum remains encouraging. Telling him that she knows he can figure out a way to save is business.   Jimmy goes to God in prayer and then then the Holy Spirt tells him to do an online search for any easy to understand book on how to start and build an online business.   Jimmy searches and finds one. He reads it devotedly. Weeks after he finished reading the book and had begun to apply all that he read his business started growing and earning profits for him at an exponential growth rate.In a matter of months, thousands of dollars was flowing into the account his mum had created for him in her name.   Jimmy’s dad didn’t know what to say about it but he still felt that what Jimmy was doing was not meant for a little boy.   The following year, a recession hits America and Jimmy’s dad loses his job. He tries all he can to get a new job but he just couldn’t find one.   That was when all the money that Jimmy had been making and was still making came in handy as he now became the bread winner of the family.   Jimmy’s dad eventually got another job a few months later but during that time he was out of a job guess why there was still food on the table. It was because of the Jimmy’s Christian web comic business; an idea he had tried to squash.
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?/

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/

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'…
