Who Can Soothe The Hotheads? (a story/ish)
Jesse was feeling a bit angry, a bit afraid and let his temper, his emo fall out all over the floor. He sat there not sure just what to do. But inside he wanted to fight like a fool.
A governor came by and tried to impress Jesse with the rule of law first. It just made Jesse angrier. So the governor sent in a cop, then soldier, to make Jesse listen. WELL! That didn’t help him calm down at all! It made him madder!
It was a good thing the governor was watching! He sent in Jesse’s family and friends, but that didn’t seem to be helping Jesse calm down. In fact, they were all getting mad.
It was a good thing the governor was watching! He sent in a story teller and the guy listened to Jesse and wrote the tale for all the villagers to hear, but that just got them all mad. They gathered pitch forks.
It was a good thing the governor was watching! He sent in a steward and asked him to help calm Jesse down. But the steward went collecting the workers and told the tale. The workers stopped work and gathered their picket signs.
It was a good thing the governor was watching! He called forth a priest from Jesse’s temple and they had a chat. Turns out Jesse was right to be upset. Well that explained why all the others were joining in…. But yes, the priest would try to help.
He preached about patience.
He preached about hope,
Then he sent in the clowns and the whores. Which was ok for the single men, But the wives weren’t having any of that business!
They dragged their husbands away from such nonsense!
Jesse was still sitting there, in his own emo. And kind of watching the show. Ready to laugh or grab a friend by the collar if he acted like a fool.
But at least now he was thinking… and he and the governor had a long talk. It’s not like the governor could say it was all Jesse being unreasonable, is it?
It’s not like Jesse being restrained or incarcerated would do much good.
So the governor went to his office and drafted some changes to the Charter and it made the future a bit brighter for their world. Today, and there was a plan for tomorrow too.
Jesse’s family and friends went back to their day,
The storyteller told a tale of change. And the villagers went home.
The steward told a tale and the workers went back to work.
The priest took the clowns and whores back to the temple and apologized to the wives he angered.
And the governor and Jesse shook hands and went home.
And Jesse? Was he still mad? Still scared? Yes, but at least he knew there was help on the way! And doesn’t that always help when you feel bad? It does it for me!
