Darnell, A Big Rat, and an Angel

Young Darnell colored a big rat on one sheet of paper.  On another, the same lad, brightened the wings of an angel with yellow crayon.

"Who wins?" I asked him, "the angel or the rat?"

Pointing to the big rat with a smile, I shot back:

"The one you feed wins!"

It does.

"When you return home," I concluded, "give your grandma a big hug."  "Feed the angel who loves you and cares for you."

Darnell walked up to his mentor as she stood, and, he hugged her.

Darnell fed the angel.
