A donkey was tied to a tree.
Read time: under a min.
One night an intruder cut the rope and released the donkey free.
The donkey went and destroyed the crops in an adjacent farmer’s land. Infuriated, the farmer’s wife shot the donkey and killed it.
The donkey’s owner was devastated at the loss. In reply, he shot dead the farmer’s wife.
Angered by his wife’s death, the farmer took a sickle and killed the donkey’s owner.
The wife of the donkey’s owner got so angry that she and her sons set the farmer’s house on fire.
The farmer, looking at his house turned into ashes, killed the wife and children of the donkey’s owner.
Fake news, misunderstanding, gossip and anger are the donkeys. People react and argue and hurt each other, without giving it a second thought.
Donkeys are everywhere, but it’s up to us to have them tied to the tree all the time.
Thank you for reading!
Until next week.
