Stone Soup
tillmorgan

Sympathy is easy
 1
to acquire.  A taste
 2
less complex than truth
 3
or even skilled deception.
 4
 
 
How women love
 5
a sad, sad soul.
 6
 
 
You flatter yourself
 7
in the dark.  You’ve lost
 8
the skill it takes
 9
to stir me
 10
and now this
 11
soup burns from the bottom up.

I've read this story to my son nearly every night for weeks.  One can't help but notice how simple plots apply to complicated lives. -till

Hmm, that's not how I ever thought of the story of Stone Soup.  Is there a new adult version?  Yes, simple plots, complicated lives.  It all begins with one step wrong.

yup
nifty words- neato
addendum.
life is actually
quite simple, in my estimation.
if people would relax for 3 minutes
once
in a while, they might see it.
