The Idiot

By: Steve Fite

The village idiot stood in one spot and repeatedly beat his head against a wall.

The villagers ran up with the intention of stopping him, but when they saw who it was, they paused.

“Oh,” they’d say.  “Makes sense…” and went about their day

Day turned to night and with one last bash, the village idiot dropped dead. When the villagers realized the village idiot hadn’t just forgotten to get up, they found a small child stuck in the wall the idiot was trying to save, starved to death.

“Why didn’t he just ask for help?!  God, what an idiot.”
