Political Satire: The Old Man of the Mountain (2)

Narrator: Suddenly, a mosquito flew out of the priest's pocket and settled on his arm. As the owl tried to attack the mosquito, the priest warded off its attack with the other arm, shouting: "Leave her alone! She is my valuable ally!"

Owl: No kidding! Your so-called valuable ally is feeding on your blood!

Priest: She is the queen of the mosquitoes that are found in a huge forest between my land and the old man's mountainous region. The mosquitoes carry a deadly disease. If the old man and his allies advance through the forest to attack my clan, they would come under the merciless attack of the mosquitoes. Hence, the huge mosquito-infested forest serves as an effective buffer zone between the two regions.

Owl: Don't the mosquitoes attack you and your people in the forest too? Don't they fly to your land to attack your clan?

Priest (taking an empty bottle from his pocket): This is why I carry the mosquito queen with me in this open bottle. Because of my alliance with her, she has ordered her species not to attack my people when they travel through the forest. For the same reason, the mosquitoes will never fly to my land to attack my clan.

Owl: Then why is she drinking your blood?

Priest: Well, it is a small price for the precious asset of traditional friendship. I have to feed her with my blood at least once a day.

Owl: Aren't you afraid of getting the deadly disease from her bites?

Priest: As she feeds only on my clean blood, she won't be carrying any disease.

Owl: You'd better get rid of the Frankenstein of your making before your blood runs dry! Her body is swelling and turning red with your blood.

Priest: Oh! No! That would mean the loss of the buffer zone between the two rival clans.

Narrator: Suddenly the insect let out a strange buzzing sound, and the priest began to dance.

Owl: Why are you prancing around like a crazy horse?

Priest: After filling her stomach, she needs entertainment. She demands me to dance to her tune.

Owl (shaking its head and mumbling to itself): As the Cantonese Chinese saying goes, "There is no remedy for a fool."

Good Morning, Reedak. Unfortunately, your very insightful parable did not include illustrations, cartoons or enough one syllable words. In cases like this, some of our DTT readers are unable to grasp it's significance. Those folks would be the DJTrump supporters, who enjoy our president's cognitively impaired speeches.
You'll have to rewrite the story to include words like YUGE, bigly, loser, terrific, fantastic, moron, slob, and very very strong. Be sure to make the story a pop-up version. The kids like that sort of thing.

Thanks from reedak and jetson

The forest is the state separating the people from achieving peaceful coexistence. The mosquitos are the government agencies bleeding the people (taxes) and the dances are arbitrary laws used as distractions.

Good morning, Clara. Thank you for your valuable suggestion which reminds me of the following joke:

(Beginning of joke)
Noticing that a man has been staring at his painting for a long time at an art exhibition, the artist approached him and asked, "Sir, may I help you?"

Looking back, the man said, "I still can't grasp the significance of your drawing. However long I stare at it, it is still a plain rectangle to me."

The artist explained, "When I was a small boy in school, I used to write the word 'book' in the rectangle to show my teacher what I was drawing. Now after so many years as an artist, I do not need to write the word any more."
(End of joke)

Keeping with the tradition of satirists and satires, I leave the interpretation of my satire to the readers.

Actually, for those readers who have been keeping track of global political affairs all these years, it won't be difficult for them to grasp the significance of the story. Perhaps you may find it easier to understand my next political satire:

Miss Sabcat, thank you for taking the trouble to interpret the message of my political satire. Your interpretation is sound, rational and meaningful even though it is not what I have intended it to be. Taking the above joke about the rectangle in the painting, the artist intended it to be a book but you may take it as a bathroom rug after staring at it for a long time. In that case, the artist could only let you interpret his drawing according to your perspective. He can't say that you are wrong.

Perhaps you may find it a lot easier to grasp the significance of my next story:

The art of the parable gives people simple ways to examine complex subjects. though the heart of the story remained illusive it's meaning is fluid, taking shape in the minds of those who are hearing it, reflecting what holds importance to the listener at that specific time and place.

The only thing I grasp, is your desperate.
