Hard times; Depression

Setting: Train Station
Place: Any Country or Land

 

            Alighting from the train, having just arrived, over-coat on arm; along with shoulder bag; drawing wheeled luggage bag behind, the man is quickly approached.

 
The approacher, is dressed in suit and top-coat; but is without any luggage or bag. 
Boldly asserting himself to be of 'kindred' spirit (his term) speaks, saying:
 
“Mr., will you give me some money, so that I can pay my debt, that I have with this other man? Will you do that for me?”
 
The man who has been asked, pauses and stares at the one who has audaciously asked him to cover his debt: “who are you?”
 
“I'm a debtor sir, that's who I am! You don't know me; but I got this debt. I made it myself, but I can't pay it. Will you give me the money to pay it? Will you? I need it.”
 
A pause, then a response from the one who has been asked to 'give it.' (money) “How did you get into this debt?” he asked.
 
“I wanted what I saw; some like what 'he' had, better, bigger and newer; so that I could sell it for something bigger and newer. Just like I saw everybody else do.”
 
A longer pause now, by the one who has been asked to 'give' his money to pay these debts, made by another man. Then words return, with another question which was: “How are you going to pay me?”
 
Now the 'borrower' pauses; but not for long; returning with:
“If the Fed Govt. will wipe the debts of Bankers, Investors, Financers, Developers, Builders, Sellers and Mortgage Holders: then they 'will' wipe out mine. After that, I'll get my house back; sell it, and will pay you. - some of what I'll owe you.”
“That is; right after I buy me some more things - newer things that is: they are better.”
 
Since, I, the observer of this Tom-foolishness back in the 1929 Depression, and twelve or more years that followed: I left them to each other, having been shown 'foolishness' then, and being taught since by a revealer on the Master Book this Truth. ‘If you rescue a fool, you will have to do it again.’ Proverb 11:3
 
‘Who-oo-oo-o’; that's my train - I'm off to Washington, D.C. and these ‘tom-fool's.’
