There’s More to Life Than Boxes: a fable

The Overseer


The Overseer owns the factory where Robot Boy makes his boxes every day all day, and again the next. The Overseer has become rich by producing high quality boxes at low, low prices.  She won Robot Boy from his Maker in a game of chance.  It was the best game she ever played.  She stores all of her wealth (gold and jewels) in a spare warehouse and, every night after locking Robot Boy away, she counts her wealth.

Although her vast success and heaps of gold give her pleasure, she can’t help but feel unsatisfied.  Every evening she toasts her success with the Van Man; he is the only other person she ever sees.  She has not left the factory grounds since winning Robot Boy seven years ago.


I can't believe I'm admitting this after years of disproving so-called 'sightings'. But the fae are real. They're real and they're here and they're going to banish humanity from the planet! Unless we can show them that we will care for the planet... please, help me save the world:
