Is This a Parable Or What?

Published September 4, 2017 by Nan Mykel


It started with a dream all 6 sisters had.

The dream began in a sink disposal.

Nasty, slimy, each landed in a mess

at the bottom of a tall, long wall.

First one tried to scrub away the mess,

spreading the stain, making it worse.

The second painted over the gunk,

denying the contamination.  It still

stank. The third hoisted herself up

the wall and looked over, then screamed

and fell into a big puddle of the stuff.

The fourth ran headlong into the wall

and broke her neck. The fifth jumped

in and covered herself from head to

toe, crowing like a rooster.  The sixth

and last sister sat down and cried.

Then the alarm clock rang and they

all rushed to the shower, except

for the sister with the broken neck.
