A café, two women, one child.
“Yesterday at dinner, Megan-Marie looked so sad, and I asked, 'What’s the matter sweetie?' And she said, ‘Mummy, why can’t all mankind learn to live together in peace and harmony?’ It broke my heart – Megan-Marie has an ancient soul.”
“And she’s only five?”
“Only five, going on 500.”
“What a remarkable child, I can scarcely believe it.”
“Oh, it’s true, it’s true. Watch this: Megan-Marie do you hope that someday all mankind will learn to appreciate everything life has to offer and live together in peace and harmony?
“See? Oh, Child really is Father to the Man. My beautiful Megan-Marie with your beautiful thoughts, you put us all to shame. Now let’s take our finger out of our nose, shall we? That would make Mummy extra-special happy.”
