It was a tale to be told,

A saga extreme,

Of a man who’d grown old,

And lived by a stream.

It was his secret escape,

His quiet retreat.

Then he met a mountain ape,

The one with big feet.

The giant lifted him up,

So tall and so lofty

and gave him a squeeze,

you might think him a softy.

Then to break all expectations,

Bigfoot swallowed him whole,

Despite the man’s protestations

He showed no control.

But he had his final revenge

And that’s without question

He gave that poor ape

Terrible indigestion.

He was charming and handsome, yet when he invited her to his apartment amongst the rowdy throng, she felt repulsed.

His gold wedding ring glinted tellingly. No doubt it would be the old saga of a wife that doesn’t understand him.

She needed an escape, after all, he was the boss.

`What do you call yourself?’ the Fawn said at last. Such a soft sweet voice it had! – Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll

The man looked distinguished with his red high collared coat and his impressive moustaches that curled at the ends. He also appeared to have a jolly disposition. He was laughing uproariously as he strode out of his grand house to take a brisk walk around his grounds. When he’d inherited the estate from his Great Aunt, it had been falling apart, but he did not skimp in restoring it to its former glory.

In the middle of the green, he spied something moving in the long grass. He was amazed to see a fawn, with a splendid pair of antlers on its young head.

Strangely, as he approached, the fawn didn’t bound away into the forest that abutted onto his land but looked right at him with a large brown eye.

“What a splendid fellow you are,” he said and nearly jumped when, after blinking at him several times, the fawn answered back.

`What do you call yourself?’ the Fawn said at last. Such a soft sweet voice it had!

“My name is Hunter” the man replied, pulling up his rifle and shooting the fawn before it could escape. “What an excellent addition to my wall you’ll make,” he said.
