The  shearer picked up the first sheep from the line, “I love sheep so much I can think of my shears as extension of my hand”. So the sheep with a bleat happily settled on his lap and said,” Get on with it! ply your shears.” So began the fellow and the sheep felt the shearer had devil of a time, and he was sore all over.”So far you let your shears as a cut purse,” said the sheep sore all over.  The shearer went on with his shearing, Whenever he cut he stanched it with wool lying about, ‘Oh that was nothing!” The sheep could not endure any longer. ” first cut me as a highway man and then as though you were covering up your sloppy job; If it is wool you want let a real shearer do me.’

The shearer would have begun but the sheep jumped out saying,” If you do second time, it will be death of me. If it is meat Be kind enough to send me over to the butcher across the road. He knows his job well”.

Some are foolish to think their idle hands will improve if power is given to them. In practice they do worse and sooner the people kick them out, the land will be better off.

The current Corona pandemics has once again brought American ire against China. US is certain that the China is the source of all the Pandemic fiasco. This reminds me of the the wolf who picked a quarrel with Wu Hu, the Lamb.  The wolf startled a lamb drinking from a stream. He said in an unfriendly voice. “Didn’t you start this pandemic?

“No I did not” Wu Hu said, ” You tell me what is this Pandemic ?

Wolf tried to explain what Corona was. “It is like Flue, It is a sneeze, a sniffle a gunk,” The wolf spluttered and all his cofefe in his word book were exhausted. He  snapped, “It is virus.”.

“I don’t get it, Mr. Wolf” Wu Hu said still perplexed. At this the wolf got hopping mad. In a rage he shrieked, “That is the problem. You set the Yellow peril going round the world, and you don’t take the blame for your negligence.”

“I am going to make you pay, real bad” The wolf said. “Dollars, Trillions of it,” He added.

“That is  the only way I shall be satisfied.” The wolf said in the end.

“But that will be against all international obligations !’ Wu Hu was aghast, “You will be seen as the most obnoxious wolf by all animals. High crime!”Wu Hu was certain.

The wolf let out a mighty laugh, “Me a criminal? It is fake news if I have my way.”

Now the President of the US is planning to make China pay up for Corona pandemics. Against this background here is some fact:”

China has steadily accumulated U.S. Treasury securities over the last few decades. As of December 2019, the Asian nation owns $1.07 trillion, or about 5%, of the $23 trillion U.S. national debt, which is more than any other foreign country.

Which way the wind is blowing, the reader may guess. If the world were a bowl of jelly! Blow Blow, Blow!

A hungry fox is desperate. He must stop his craving but how? This ambitious fox found an opening in the hollow of a tree and jumped in and having helped himself to all that his position allowed he found he was in a fix. He could not go forward nor could he back out. Aesop had an answer to the dilemma of the fox. But Bo Jo is yet to find one.

At the animal farm once a question came up: which animal served Farmer Joe most? The cow said she gave milk and its goodness kept the farmer strong and healthy. The porker wallowing in mud said,’The cow only said part of the story. She makes bones of Joe strong but my meat makes his muscles ripple with goodness so he may work whole day, without tiring’. The goats added their story and said, ‘A good butt from my horns has made the boss exclaim,”When ever I want the Bank to increase my credit worthiness I can well thank you for showing how.”‘ The rooster added how he served the hens in the farmyard so Father Joe has everyday something to break up. “Besides egg story has not anyone here something better to tell?”the animals asked one another
A frog who came there asked,”Please will you decide our case?” At this point the mosquito also appeared, “Please settle our argument”
The animals did not know what to make of it all.
The frog said, “This mosquito s malaria case while my poison is instant death.”
Mosquito by name Xi said,”Give me a chance to prove it on Farmer Joe, He shall die the most horrible death slow agonizing death.” While Donny the frog said, “Novichok in Salisbury was nothing compared to what I got. No collusion, no dilution but pure evil”. They were both asking the animals a chance to practice on Farmer Joe.
Oh boy were the animals so enraged! This is how tariff war is played at the expense of the whole world.

A wolf bruised all over came down to drink from his usual watering hole. He saw a lamb on the other side of the hole happily lapping up water. Annoyed he accused him of want of respect. The lamb still smiling said, ‘when the sky drops water barley grows without much sweat’. The wolf was all the more incensed. “I am talking of water, how dare you talk of barley?” The lamb went on slurping and it made the wolf all the more angry. “Didn’t you muddy the water yesterday?” the wolf hollered.
“I wasn’t even thirsty yesterday.”
“Ah the day before, I am certain”. They went on arguing back and forth and the wolf every time going farther in time. In the end the lamb shouted across, “Stop! 1812 war was not my making!” the lamb stood his ground, “If you would pick a quarrel know your history and speak more to the facts”.
The wolf was so flabbergasted and said,”your cheekiness is so outrageous. I shall eat you up for that reason alone.”
The lamb let out a raspberry and said, “I would have taken you seriously if you had even a single teeth left.”
Don’t go about threatening without knowing your own ability carry them out. This is what tariff wars of America remind me. Unilateralism of any nation neck deep in mire is merely shooting wind.

A man enjoying the sun while lolling on a lawn found ants making a beeline from B to B and it stung him. Next instant he shot up with a howl that would have made a banshee nod in approval.

Is it watusi?” a grasshopper asked the ant nearest to him.

“No what you see is neither here nor there but it is his move.”

The grasshopper said, “By Jiminey! he cant do as we do naturally Can he?”

“We can cut a caper without batting an eyelid…”

“Batman!” called out another, “here comes death from the skies, a robin.”

The grasshopper continued after the threat was gone, “Whatever it is the man is all hands.”

The ant replied,”You shall not be so critical if you had ants in pants as he does.”

Donny the tortoise was certain with a shell as his armor would bulldoze anything in his path. Hillary the Hare romped all about the land showing her experience was nimble and quick. Oh their race to the White House was hard fought. KKK was there in full force; so were the money bags . Hillary was sure it was all in the bag. Oh when the results came she was bulldozed by a light weight Donny who had acquired enough baggage to keep him steady.

Experience is all stored in the records. When one casts ballot these are still there and is of no use. The electorate smell the air  and the scare politics is what one gets in the end.img_3603
