Peter: The Little Girl in the Wall

Lions stalk the plains of Africa, roaring and eating up deer, then the Rock of Gibraltar appears behind a man that lights a cigarette and promises money to people that die.

“That’s the strength of the rock!” he says.

Peter thinks about the little girl with scissors.

Mother says she hides in the walls until she hears a little
boy talking too much.

Then she pops out, holds him down, and cuts out his tongue!

Mother says the little girl has scissors as long as Father’s arms.

But the little girl can’t hear a drawing, Peter thinks.

Mother’s in the kitchen having coffee with Earline.

Earline is the lady that lives next door.

Mother says Earline is PG.

Peter goes into the kitchen to show Earline his pictures of
people with breasts.

Earline blushes and says what a little man Peter’s become.

Mother heaves a burdened sigh and shakes her head, “He’s so difficult Earline! One of his uncle’s gave him a book about the natives of Africa; now he draws tits on everything.”

Mother smiles patiently at Peter: “Go to the living room, sweetheart and we’ll look at your drawings later.”

Peter returns to the living room. where the flies chase each other around his chair: one of them drifts sluggishly to the floor.

Peter snatches it up and rips off it’s wings.

Then he drops it to the floor to see what a fly without wings can do.

  1. The careless things we do and say ,lazy throwaway words driven by a need to control for the sake of control so as not to bother us as ignore the damage we inflict.

    I witnessed a couple just today bombard a child with such negative controlling words and emotions because they couldn’t be arsed with him and wanted compliance

      1. This isn’t the first time a wealthy cabal of rich industrialists have tried to overthrow the government of the United States.

        And democracy’s are vulnerable to lapsing into tyrannies.

        I guess the question is whether Mueller will present his
        evidence while we still have a criminal justice system with
        the integrity to prosecute.

        All of the evidence in the World won’t count for squat
        once the courts are stacked.

      2. Me too. I love certain terms I only hear from people who live in the UK. ‘You lot’ is my favorite. It changes according to context and tone of voice. Thanks for the encouraging comment. We lot really need all we can get. 🙂

  2. Another powerful segment, Rob. Your comment “We have created a political culture that reflects the narcissistic bullying that we despise on the internet.” is sadly spot-on.
    Wishing you sunshine, Bay breezes, wellness, and happy sounds. Hugs.

  3. Oh Bless, truly Bless…the trouble with misunderstanding is often that those who practise that , have been often misunderstood themselves. IMO it all boils down to nature vs nurture. Bless everyone.

    1. Yes. That’s why we must stop to consider the world that we are making for our children. There are children today whose lives are much worse.

      Not only must they survive parents who were not meant to have children, they must watch and listen to a media that fuels the abuse by withholding essential resources.
      We have created a political culture that reflects the narcissistic bullying that we despise on the internet.

      What can be more supremely narcissistic than withholding food and shelter from children?

      What can be more abusive than victimizing the weak and then blaming them for being victims?
