54 CEMETERY SOUP

54 CEMETERY SOUP
On her way home from the market, the woman took a short cut
through the cemetery. There sticking up out of the ground,
she saw a big bone. She picked it up and looked over it
carefully. "This will make a very good soup bone," she
said. "I think I'll take it home. It's perfect weather for
hot soup." When she got home, the first thing she did was
start the soup. Into the big soup pot went water, carrots,
green beans, corn, barley, onions, potatoes, a snitch of
beef, some salt and pepper, and--the bone. She brought it
all to a boil, the brought it down to a simmer. "Yum!" she
said, sniffing it and tasting it. "I Can hardly wait till
supper." Suddenly she heard a small voice. "Please give me
back my bone." The woman paid no attention. Soon she heard
the voice again. "May I have back my bone, please?" The
woman as reading the newspaper, and again she didn't take
any notice. In a little while, the voice spoke up once
more. It was beginning to sound angry. "Give me back my
bone!" The woman kept on reading the paper. "Some people
are not too impatient," she muttered. Once more the voice
spoke. Now it sounded very angry, and it was so loud that
the whole house shook. "I WANT MY BONE BACK!" The woman
reached into the pot, grabbed the bone, and threw it out
the window. In a voice just as loud, she shouted, "TAKE
IT!" There was an eerie silence. But soon a small voice
said "THANK YOU!" Then the woman heard footsteps scurrying
away from the house down the road toward the cemetery. And
she got up and served herself some soup.
