    "The Thief"

    "The Thief"

    The eyes of the young thief look away in embarrassment as he is grabbed by the arm.
    "Why do you try and steal from me?"
    The wealthy merchant asks?
     The young boy apparently mad from hunger jerks and thrashes trying to escape.
    The merchant repeats.
    "Why do you try and steal from me?"
    The little boy quickly responds in a weak raspy voice.
    "I have no money and my little sister is dying from hunger!"
    The merchant struck by a sense of grief lets go of the boy as he pulls away with the bag of gold....
    ..Soon after..
    ..As the little boy is running home to his rich family..
    ..He thinks to himself..
    "Works every time"

    You forced a good "HA!" from my crackling lungs with this one, it sounds like a bed time story told in the Middle East! So few words, such great meaning.

    There is a lot of this in the world, which is unfortunate. It makes it so much more difficult to spot the people who really are being honest and need a hand. Good point though.

    Oh my so true in our world, unfortunately, greed money and power will ruin us all, we too can fall like Rome. Great work, I'm intrigued. Love the style. Congrats!

    Woo! this was a good piece of work very different concept kind of fits the description of some thiefs, yet I think the story made up does falls in some thiefs hands as having a tragic lifestyle. I like the irony of story and the suspenseful stork telling, great write.

    Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.

    Plato (BC 427-BC 347) Greek philosopher.
