Sam & The Toy Solider - a short story by A.B.King

   Once upon a time in a place much like where you live right now there lived a 13 year old boy who was always found of causing trouble for all the neighborhood kids around his age. His name was Sam. No one could control him and he proved to be a menace.
   Sam never listened in Sunday school. He never cared for moral instruction he believed in living life each day as it comes.
   All the kids tried all they could to get Sam to quit being a menace to them but to no avail so they deceived to teach Sam a lesson.
   After much research, they found out that Sam had a remote control toy solider which he loved dearly.
   Since one of the kids was an amateur ventriloquist, they decided to get him to cast his voice on the remote control toy solider so it would look like if it is the remote control toy solider that is talking. They also replaced the remote control with an identical remote control that doesn’t work.
   When Sam later took his toy to play that day, the amateur ventriloquist cast his voice on the toy. Sam was shocked that his toy was speaking to him.
   The toy told Sam that if he wanted it (the toy) to play with him (Sam), then he should do 20 push-ups. Sam disagreed but the toy was insistent and made it very clear that if he wanted to play he had to do the push-ups first. After many minutes of sweating had passed and Sam had done all 20 push-ups he came back to play with the toy but the toy said that now he should do 10 back flips. Sam was shocked and annoyed. He told the toy that there was no way he was going to do the 10 back flips that he had already done the 20 push-ups and that they had a deal. A deal is a deal and they agreed that after he finished the 20 push-ups it would agree to play with him.  But the toy insisted. Sam had no choice, he just had to do it. After a lot more of sweating from doing 10 back flips Sam went back to the toy to play with it but it said know that Sam must jog round the compound 12 times before it would play with him. Sam was very angry and shouted at his toy for trying to rip him off. After Sam’s raving and ranting the toy till insisted and Sam had to jug round the compound 12 times. When Sam finished just like you expected the toy still had another task for him. Sam went on and on like this with the toy over and over again until he was very very tired and it was clear that he had suffered enough.
   The toy then started talking to him about his attitude towards other kids and got him to promise he’s going to change that. The toy also took the liberty to tell him about Jesus and about the reason for and the advantage of the moral instructions that were given in Sunday school that Sam didn’t listen to.
   At the end of the day Sam turned over a new leaf.
   When Sam left, the amateur ventriloquist and the other kids came out of where they were hiding in the room and started laughing. They had taught Sam a lesson – a lesson he won’t soon. Sam won’t be bothering anyone anymore.

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'/
