The Angry Goose

A brave, courageous man he was. If heaven is true as they say, this moment as we speak, Gander must be seeping the blood of Jesus. If God is really as these holy souls of day-light claim, Gander is seated at God’s right-hand side. And God must be proud of Gander. For what reason would he not be? Please tell me.

Gander had done his best to defend us all. He pushed the best he could to protect his family. Defiance! Gander spoke truth to power. How could the gods judge Gander, a coward who couldn’t just cope with everyone in the world? He was born, grew up, and lived for 76 years in a toxic masculinity society. Can you relate to that? If you were human, you would. Then you would begin to understand. Fumes overpowering him. Choking his, very, being to death.

That’s the only way they got near him.

Armed with a single bullet, Gander made a quick decision. He could let the bastard him first.

How could the gods judge Gander, a coward who couldn’t just cope with everyone in the world?

Gander was a soldier!
