Caught Red Tongued - a short story by A.B.King


   Once upon a time in a certain pre – school, candy was always been stolen from the candy jar and nobody knew who did it. However, kids would be kids and so they suspected little Becky.She was always the last one to leave the class and sometimes stayed in class during recess to read a story book or an academic book.
   The other kids suspected that Becky was only pretending to read and that whenever no one was around she would sneak to the Teacher’s desk and steal the candy from the candy jar. Thus, animosity began towards Becky by the other students in the class.
   The Teacher trusted Becky to be a good girl and so she never took action against Becky.However, that only made matters worse.
   Becky wanted the animosity to end so Becky spent time in prayer to ask God for what to do.
   God gave Becky an idea. It was perfect. It was sure to work. Becky was happy about the idea and thanked God joyfully for it.
   Becky went to the Teacher privately and told her the idea. The teacher was happy with the idea and agreed to play along.
   The next day, when candy was missing everyone in class turned angrily to look at Becky. But Becky remained calm. She knew all the animosity would all be over soon.
   The teacher told all the students to line up in a straight line and as they get to her they should stick out their tongue.
   After the exercise, only one boy’s tongue was bright red. The Teacher said he was the culprit.
   Becky had told the Teacher to replace all the candy with a special candy that colors the tongue an unusually bright tone of red. That way, anyone whose tongue is that unusual color would be the culprit – the one who had been committing the crime.
   Thus, Becky was cleared of all suspicion. All because she has a God who loves her and can speak to her in time of trouble.
   Do you have that kind of relationship with God?

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'…

Sunday Morning Blues - a poem by Alfred

The Sun rays slowly crawls through my window/
It kisses my closed eyelids with Gusto/
My eyes roll open like a hand of Ludo/
I stretch Good Morning like I'm practising Judo/
I Growl like a Lion on a half empty stomach/
I praise the God who gave me Life with No Buts/
The Sunday Morning air beats all Pizza Huts/
Fancy trying to put Happiness in a Box/
I Decrease the weight of my cereal box/
Church Bells ring, Christianity Walks/
It's a day we all remember our Christian Walk/
Even radios remember and play Gospel Songs/
I hear no fighting or quarreling behind closed doors/
Yelp, it's Sunday alright, even when it pours/
There's something about Sundays that always oozes joy/
A Day of Rest, A Day of worshipping God/
Sunday Morning Blues stretches beyond the church/
Rejoice in the Lord whether or not you go to church/
But don't forsake Spiritual Growth, you'll grow in Joy/
And the Sunday Morning Blues won't leave Monday Morn'/
