IT MUST BE TRUE
Parable of the Flurb and the Warlord
[04/11/2011] [Glen]

Now it came to pass that the Faithful were gathered on the Hill of Gesthena, which translates as "Yak Place" in the Old Tongue. They came to hear the Wisdom of the Great Teacher.

And behold, a certain fighter stood up and tested Him, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit Perfection?"

He said to him, "What is written in the Law? What is the command of the heart?"

So he answered and said, "You shall love combat with all your heart, with all your soul, and never fail to take the field. You shall take your shots and strive for excellence."

And the Teacher said to him, "You have answered rightly; do this and you will be victorious."

But he, wanting to justify himself, said to the Great Teacher, "And what is excellence?"

Then the Great Teacher answered and said: "A certain warlord went down from his homeland to a neighboring kingdom. His journey was fraught with delays and his weapons were lost. When the Visiting Warlord arrived on the field, he had no sword."

"Now, by chance, a certain Sword Knight came upon him. Seeing the visitor's need the Sword Knight passed him by, for he needed his sword to fight himself. Likewise, a Serpent Knight, when she arrived at that place, came and looked, but she too would offer no aid for her sword was too pretty to use in battle. Next, a Crown Knight came upon the Visiting Warlord, but this knight would not loan him a weapon for the warlord could not vote for him. Then a Flame Knight came upon the Warlord, but he had no time to help; the soup was boiling and the Flame Knight ran off without a word."

"Then, lo, when all seemed lost, the Warlord heard a small voice at his side. The Warlord turned to see a Flurb beside him. 'You may borrow my axe,' the Flurb said to him. Receiving the axe, the Warlord Took the Field and smote about him in Fire and Fury, bringing death and defeat to his foes, and the Flurb followed in his wake."

Then the Great Teacher said to the fighter, "What have you learned from this?"

The fighter showed great confusion. He answered, "Flurbs are a source of free weapons?"

The Teacher drove the Faithful forth in fury. "You have learned nothing."
