Spit in Soup

Once upon a time, a master had a servant-cook. Now the master was a bully. And his cook felt many a kick when the master didn't like what the servant had fixed. The master never had a kind word of thanks even when the servant cooked something the master liked. The servant always knew when the master liked what he had cooked, because the master would grunt or belch after the meal.

FIVE MINUTES AFTER I DIE
by Dr. Andrea MacVicar

Since 8/11/14, the print and visual media have been filled with the sad news of iconic comedian, actor, Robin Williams' suicide.
