Unnatural History by Eugene Ahern
The Cop
No, children, you don't have to
walk on your tiptoes to keep from
waking it up. The difference) be
tween a cop and a bear is that the
bear sleeps in winter but the cop
sleeps the four seasons through.
Before it becomes a cop the" co
coon has to pass a rigid physical ex
amination. It has to be perfect in
every way except in eyesight, hear
ing and'running.
The cop is never around when lit
tle things like a murder, holdup or
a fight occur, but when something
terrible happens, like a couple of
newsboys matching pennies, he'a
right there like clam soup.
The next time there's a parade
study the cop and see how his chest
sticks out as he struts up and down
the street keeping the masses on the
sidewalk. Never answer back a cop
or try to explain something to him
when he nabs you, because no mat
ter how right you are, you're wrong.
o o
Robbie, for his misdeeds, waa
about to get a thrashing. He left his
mother's room and" went to his own.
Kneeling down beside his bed and
with hands clasped, he offered up the
following prayer:
"Please, God, if You are as good to
little children as they say You are,
now's your chance."
