The Story Of The Dog Hater - a short story by A.B.King

   Once upon a time but in a time not too far back in time at all there lived a skinny young man named Frank Wayne, but everyone called him Frankie. He wasn’t a Christian. He hated animals, especially dogs and liked nothing more than to torture dogs or see them suffer.
   Frankie had a very tough childhood. He didn’t feel loved. He was raised by a single Mum who didn’t really care about him, she felt her job as a mother was done if put some food on the table. Thus she was a provider but not a mother. She didn’t even know what was going on in her own son’s life.
   Frankie never knew his father. He had to teach himself how to be a man. Sadly and naturally, he didn’t do a very good job.
Frankie now lived on his own. He worked as a car mechanic. Whenever he wasn’t doing that he was making the lives of any dog he encountered miserable. He would chase dogs with large sticks. He would set up dogs to fight themselves just for personal pleasure. He would even go as far as setting bear traps for dogs in the woods by the river, which he knew was a place a few dogs especially stray ones loved to hide bones or look for bones.
   One afternoon as he finished setting a bear trap he looked up and saw a little boy standing in front of him. Frankie leaped up in fear. He was always careful to make sure no one saw what he was doing. He never wanted anyone to know what he did concerning the bear traps for dogs so he always made sure no one was around first. How come he didn’t see this little boy coming? Where did this little boy come from? He was positive there was no one in sight before he had started to set the traps.
   “What do you want?”, Frankie shouted at the little boy hoping to intimidate him and then scare him away.
   “I know what you’re doing”, the little boy said, ignoring Frankie’s earlier question.
   Frankie tried to pretend but the boy told him just what he was doing and also told him to stop it.
   Frankie was dumbfounded at first but he later regained his wits and told him to mind his own business.
   The little boy told Frankie that God doesn’t like what he is doing, and that cruelty to animals is a sin.
   Frankie lost it and rained abuses on the boy, then he worked away leaving the set trap there.
   Frankie felt a little bit worked up, at he went home he headed straight for bed. No sooner had he laid down and closed his eyes that he heard what sounded like a multitude of barking dogs around him. Frankie looked around him and it was just that. He was surrounded by a pack of really mean looking dogs. How did they get in? But there was no time for asking questions, Frankie had to run away as fast as he can and run away he did. He dived through his open bedroom window and ran screaming for help. It was like there was no one to help him. It was like no one heard him.
   The dogs cornered Frankie and the only place for him to run to was into the woods. Frankie ran and ran but in the back of his mind he knew it would only be a matter of time before the big scary ferocious dogs get him.
   Frankie zigzagged through the woods. Now for the first time in his life he started regretting being cruel to animals. He ran and ran and ran then he tripped over a branch and fell. The dogs immediately surrounded him.
   Frankie put his hands in front of him to futilely protect himself as he screamed and cried mammoth tears at the same time. He started screaming and saying that he would never hurt any animal again. For the first time in his life Frankie talked to God and started begging God that he would never hurt another animal again and that if God can help him walk away from this with his life that he would be extra nice to animals.
   Suddenly one of the dogs turned into the little boy he had talked to earlier from the woods. Then the little boy started walking forward towards Frankie, as he walked in changed into a big strong handsome angel. Frankie peed in his pants.
   The angel told Frankie that this would be his last chance. God is going to forgive him but if he ever is cruel to another creature of God he would regret it.
   Frankie agreed and with tears in his eyes and a great amount of fear in his heart he promised to never hurt another animal again.
The angel told Frankie that when he reads the first few chapters of the book of Genesis he would see that before the fall of Man, God’s original plan for man was to take care of the animals.
   It’s still one of the responsibilities God has given Man today.
    Frankie nodded his head in agreement.
    Suddenly, the angel and all the dogs disappeared, kinda like the just turned into wind.
   That was when Frankie’s eyes opened. It had all been a dream. After his encounter with the little boy in the woods he had gone home and fallen asleep.
   Dream or not, Frankie had learnt his lesson. He ran to the woods and removed the bear trap he set for dogs.
   From that day on, Frankie was nice and kind to all of God’s creatures especially dogs.

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/

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'/
