This very short tale, about 800 words, is a rewrite of a story I wrote eons ago.
The story of King David is one of the great stories of history. This retelling is from the viewpoint of Prince Jonathan, the son of King Saul. It examines the relationship of Jonathan and his father, asking how to obey the 5th commandment when one’s father is not very honorable. While it is very long, I do hope you enjoy it.
This “poem” might be best read out loud with a sense of urgency.

This story is adapted from an old legend. Many years ago I read that St. John was tortured by being boiled in oil, but that he survived.
This is a different take on The Three Little Pigs. They’re plumbers. The wolf is a banker. I do hope you enjoy this tale. I had a lot of fun writing it.
October 5th. Our son, Andrew, was born on this day. Unfortunately, he lived only 11 days. Perhaps I will tell that story sometime. Today I tell him a story.
