Once Upon a Night
Once upon a night, a clumsy old shoe, trying to review time got a cauldron to brew. But the naughty spell book pushed her inside, and when she woke up, 6000 BC was the time. “Who must you be, so different and unique? If only I could meet more shoes such as you”, said the primitive straw shoe, which had rescued her.
And so they embarked on a journey beyond lands and time to trace their evolution.
Far ahead in future was the next stop, in 1000 BC, where both of them did drop. Shoes here were different, taller and tangled. It wasn’t wilderness anymore but Greece when it was geographically angled.
“Where are we going next?” the magician’s companion asked. “To the land called the golden bird”, she replied. It was the Indian nation where they had reached and 200 BC was the era. “Oh wow! Look how everyone here resembles the bark of trees” they exclaimed. It was the wooden ‘Padukas’ that had left those two in a daze.
Now it was 50 years before Christ would come and ancient Rome was flourishing. It was the time when skin and hide were the ones trending.
“Where are we now?” the straw slipper asked. “We are in my time my child.,” said the other. It is the century where change has come and things are being set right. Our lord, the master shoemaker, realized how wrong it is, to kill innocent beings for our cause and so it is the era of KANABIS. Made from canvas, jute, lace and others we all are vegan shoes as you may say and now my child it is time for you to sleep and wake up in your time today.
The little straw shoe now in his own century had his wish come true, he travelled through time and met others of his kind, but as his favorite, and only Kanabis he would choose.
