Great "fable" in the San Pedro Sun…..

Dear Editor,
I have attached a copy of my latest fable and would be tremendously grateful if you would find the contents worthy of publication in your esteemed newspaper. In the meantime, I wish you a fabulous day.
Lucius Blackstone

The Dons of the Done Deal

The last time we visited the happy land of Felize things were going wonderfully. The industrious people of that fair land, through hard work and cooperative effort had made their home the envy of their neighbours.

They had stopped cutting down their trees and instead invited people to come sit in the shade and enjoy the many beautiful vistas to be found in the pristine peaceful forests. For combined with the beautiful white beaches protected by their famous reef, with crystal clear waters lapping gently upon the sand, Felize was indeed a magical land to visit.

In fact, once word got around, people from all over the world were coming to see this beautiful place and the Felizeans prospered. Some opened hotels or tranquil retreats, others restaurants, or fed their families by showing visitors the many sights to be found in this wonderful land.

More and more people came to stay, went home and told their friends abut it, so that each year Felize counted a greater number of guests, many of whom would spend more and more time and gold in this tranquil country.

But fame can be a fickle mistress. While she attracts pleasant visitors who only want to enjoy the serene beauty of a place, she can also sing a siren’s song to the greedy, the sort of people who see dollar signs instead of nature’s bounty, and wish to plunder it for their own ends.

And so it was that one day a cold north wind brought the people from the Land of the Midnight Sun.

The captains of this fleet of hardy folk were experienced in the ways of making gold, and they knew a good thing when they saw it.

“Well send our own Big Boats full of people who will pay to see this magic land. And we’ll make sure they pay us, and only us to experience the magic of Felize! We’ll make a fortune!”

Love this guy! Too bad it's not a fable.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

It's hard to smile with a tear in my eye. Too bad no cronies read this.

They wouldn't get the point anyway, Harriet.

How do you trust GST when high placed employees are accused of extortion?

How do you trust BTB when millions are missing, and those on the committee to approve NCL are involved with other govt scandals (immigration and nationality), wholesale rape of high end forest products) and biz which can only benefit from the construction of new terminal, tender boats and so much more crap it'll make you sick
