Blood pancakes — t r e f o l o g y

I asked myself,

should I really have another

serving of pancakes?

***

After-all,

I had already finished

three helpings,

and though I was dining at an

eat-all-you-can

pancake restaurant,

I still felt I might be

over-doing it.

***

So, I asked God

for a sign.

Any sign at all.

Should I have one more serving

of pancakes?

***

Suddenly, I heard

the crackle of the diner’s

over-head television set

being turned on, and

then an urgent news report:

Mining disaster!

Many feared dead.

Hundreds more missing.

***

So, yeh, I had another

order of pancakes.

But I did not feel good about it
