The Day that Pigs Did Fly….And Indeed They Did

As Told by Andrew James Murdoch Stephen

Long ago there was a very nasty cruel merchant of another colour than our own who was in fact a mercenary from the Old World…..after he had collected as many scalps of our Brothers and Sisters and Children……..remember Dear Reader they were the first to practice that……he opened a store in the wilderness…..sold liquid poison….over charged….plugged rifles that he was selling so they would be useless and blame it on the customers….and he practiced usuary to the enth degree….and what people could not afford and asked for credit at his usuary fees he would always say “Hell no, you’ll see that day when pigs fly”………Creator and a Warrior were always checking up on this person ……one night the merchant was tranformed into the pig……the filthy pig….and I hate to insult pigs by saying this to you……and the Warrior said “Well why not give him wings, that is his favourite saying, maybe that his destiny”………Creator laughed and said “Ok, we will do this one thing to teach this pig man a lesson in humility”………..merchant was sleeping fitfully on a belly full of fresh rabbit and brandy wine……..voom!!!!….merchant turned into a pig and much to the pig merchants amazement he even had wings………at first he was amazed and filled with glee that he could soar and rise and swoop……but he missed his money, he missed his luchre, his missed his intimidating people……….one day he flew straight into a rock face of a cliff while he was pre-occupied by watching where his former customers were now shopping and trading……after a time pig man was aroused and woken up by Creator and Warrior………”have you had enough?” Warrior asked “or do you need more?”………pig man swore, then corrected himself and swore oath upon oath and testiment upon testiment that he would change bad errors of his evil ways…..pig man was immediately sent back as himself but much less than himself from his previous being……he became a kind man……a pillar of the community….never charged usary and to this day………has never ever said to anybody “Hell no, when pigs fly”…………Andy, Peace Out….
