The Town That Believed Wolf

by Geoff Bouvier

It's been 2,500 years since Aesop blamed the victim in a wolf-related death. Finally, someone (Mr. Bouvier) has re-opened this cold case. Using more compassionate forensic methods, Bouvier finds the true culprit. This poem draws a mind-expanding connection between trust and warning. Something I never thought about has now become something I will think about the rest of my life.

This was fantastic! I want to frame it and give it to every parent, teacher, and person I know.

Maybe the cries of children are disregarded because adults learn to disregard their own internal child's cries. Lovely words for all to cherish.

We would love to hear from you.
