IT IS ALLEGORY BUT SOMEHITNG IN IT FOR YOU THE READER

Tom asked his mother, mum what is that thing there flying? She replied and said it is only a bird tom. Tom was sad he knew deep down it wasn’t a bird but a little miracle in the sky, this is what tom knew but he was deceived. Then, as they were walking back home from the park, the mother looked at a beautiful plastic flower in a shop and she said to tom: what a beauty tom, tom looked at her with his big blue eyes and said yerrrrrrr ma it is only a fake flower. How can you say that? Look at what they have done isn’t that amazing? No sweet for you tonight. Tragic? This is what they want us to believe ant it?
