The Gnome asks...

The Gnome asks...

A Story by Jon Roggie
"

Forgive me Warner Brothers

"
"What do we do now, Tortoise?"

The Tortoise pauses for a moment,
 takes a breath, 
  and uses a voice normally heard in so-called children's cartoons.

"The same thing we do every night, Gnomie.
  Try to bring hope to the world."

I seem to recall from childhood the moment i knew they were real, the time they were in a rush and didn't wipe away their muddy footprints. Amateur mistake 😀

We need love where there is hatred. What a dreadful state of affairs we find ourselves in. 2020 is possibly the most dismal year I can remember. Covid and riots. What a combination. Yes, we need hope Jon and by the bucket load and quickly too. Hope you are doing ok my friend.
