Sketchbook 5: The Boy Who Cried Wolves

This is my most recent sketchbook doodle.  I actually have another 19 older ones queued up to be posted, but I wrote a poem to go with this one, so it gets a priority showing.

The Boy Who Cried Wolves


The Boy Who Cried Wolves

"Give us your lunch money!"
said the bigger boy.
"And give us your toys!"

"No,"
said The Boy Who Cried Wolves
on his first day at school.
"Shan't!"

"I said give us them!"
was the bully's reply,
and The Boy Who Cried Wolves
began to cry.

And although that day
The Boy Who Cried Wolves
lost his money and his toys,
none of the other boys
picked on him
or heard from the bully
ever again.

I suggest that this would be quite a useful superpower.  As long as the wolves didn't turn on you.
