The Emissary

Note: Originally published on Facebook on June 19

On our arrival in Honningsvag, 71 degrees North latitude
We were pleasantly surprised when we were received with much gratitude
The Trolls, who had left Norway for good long years ago
Had actually sent a high-ranking emissary from their Embassy in Tromso

He shook my hand, and thanked me on behalf of the troll king
And said that my stories of their exploits had got everyone talking
The UN now wanted to recognize the troll kingdom as an independent nation
And that news had been received by the trolls with much jubilation

Full of self-importance, I said, you’re welcome, but I didn’t realize
That my stories had contributed so much in opening everyone’s eyes
It is not that, said the emissary, but your history of the trolls is so wildly inaccurate
That the UN had no option but to intervene in order to set the record straight

At the age of 40, I decided to exit the corporate world, and enter the world of stories as a full-time writer. Wish me luck!
