When I left you yesterday there was a conflict between good and evil forming in my mind. I had been teasing some friendly little Canada Geese by pretending I was tossing food to them, but it was only pebbles that I was using to lure them closer with. Then I began to feel a creeping shame come over me, and that is where I will begin today.
I was looking at the geese as they began to leave once again, and then I looked down at the ground where I got the pebbles. I looked back at the geese, wanting them to come back, but feeling ashamed at what I had done. They thought I was their friend, but I had betrayed them! Then I looked back down at the ground. I felt bad, but I knew what I had to do.
Once again I reached down to the place where I got the pebbles, and I pulled up a handful of weeds that I thought the geese might like. I didn't know if this would make amends but I had to try. I had to become the friend of these geese again and repair the damage I had done to their feelings. So I tossed the weeds onto the lake, right in front of them.
The geese then turned back, still trusting me all the way, and quickly swam towards the weeds. One of the geese was so eager that it nipped at one of the others to chase it away from potentially the tasty treat in front of them. What a greedy goose! There was plenty for all of them! They began to nibble at the weeds I had thrown to them, and I happily realized they liked them!
I quickly grabbed more and tossed them into the water. They just as quickly gobbled up this second handful. I wasn't done there! I grabbed a third handful of these weeds for the geese, and raised my hand to toss them out to them, and the geese, in unison, followed my hand with their heads as it went up to release their treat. That's when the evil voice triumphantly returned!
Evil is sly and swift in the way it can convince somebody to do what it wants, and I seemed to be a very willing victim. So instead of releasing the treat I lowered my hand slowly and watched the geese follow me. Now I was in command! I was the evil ruler of these gullible geese! I waved the food around to show them my power, and they followed my every move. Ha ha ha ha ha!!!
When I got bored with that, I finally threw the weeds to my new minions. I let them have the weeds and I turned and walked away to find another adventure. That's all. The evil voice won and the good voice lost. What? Did you expect good to win? Let this be a lesson to you. No matter how much you want it, good doesn't always win! (Cue evil laughter, and fade to black.)
