The Pied Piper of Hamelin, where is he today?
The brothers Grimm remind us that fables and tales reveal the world today. The Pied Piper of Hamelin always fascinated me. The towns people were upset and the their town government knew something had to be done. Their problem is our problem today.
There are too many rats in Washington D.C. now. We know that the vermin nest and multiply in plain sight. They don’t care if we object, they just bring in more rats. The rats are stealing our food. The rats have their own rules and laws that are not ours. They feast on our food. They rest in our beds while we work through the nights for more rat food. The rats have lawyers to protect their rats. We cannot use rat poison since the EPA prohibits. We cannot deny them our food, since it is against PETA. The rats since they are here cannot be evicted. What right do we have to judge rats evil? We need to understand the rat culture and needs.
We have rats writing the laws on the staff of congress and senate, because the senators and congressmen rely upon their rats. The senators and congressman do not pretend anymore, they are run by rats. There are rats in the White House too. What are we to do? We need a Pied Piper of Hamelin now!
