Project 365 2012/3 how goes the work? Quack

“How goes the work?” asked the farmer, “Quack!” said the duck.

This is a quote from one of my favorite children’s stories that I used to read to the boys, it tells the story of a lazy farmer who exploits his animals to do his work while he lays in bed all day. I have seen reviews where they think the story is about slavery, exploitation and societies class structures. Sure it could be about all those things, many children’s stories have hidden or more tragic stories as a base, this is especially true of poems.

Sometimes it is nice to sit down and read children a bedtime story, we don’t need to worry them about the dangers n the world, child should keep their innocence for as long as possible. They have the rest of their lives to be adults.
