Unnatural History by Gene Ahern
The Drone
All right, George, let's have the full
spotlight on the drone, a first cousin
to the owl, or "wise guy," who was in
this outbreak of literature some time
Ah! that's better, we can see it
pretty well now through the clouds
of stale cigaret smoke.
Go ahead, Horatio, impart to us
the nake1 truth about the drone
Fritz, please render that fitting selec
tion, "Please Go 'Way an' Let Me
Snore" for this number.
Well, here goes. The drone's
mother comes into his room about
ten in the a. m. and says, "Luke, oh.
Luke, come on now, get up. I have
your breakfast ready for you, and
111 give you some car fare and lunch,
money for you to go up town and see
if you can't get a job." The drone
gets up in a hurry when he hears the
word money. After breakfast he
takes the money and goes uptown
Is ie really going after a job, Othello?
Such a silly question! Of course he
is not He can't get over to his fa
vorite hang out, the pool room, quick
enough. He stays there until the
proprietor starts 'yawning, then he
thinks about going home. He gets
there about 3, and 10 times out of 9
gets to bed with his clothes on. If
you want to know what he does the
next day and the next, read the chat
ter all over again.
