This could be a true short story and will be shared at "Tell Me a Story Blog Hop."  My next continued story will begin soon.

 
I looked out the window and saw little Charlie a doing something he oughtn’t so I tell’s him to come in a here.
 
When he’s in I tells him, “I see’d what you am a doing and some ones else am see’d you to. Now let me tell you child dis stuff you am a dong ain’t going unnoticed and the piper is going to demand his payment.
Amd dat’s duh day “Them chickens is a coming home to roost.”

“Wat you mean chickens coming home? Dem chickens ain’t gone nowhere except’in in the pot on Sunday.”
“Oh yes little Charlie des different kind of chickens.”

“What kind dem chickens is grandma?”
“Oh my little Charlie, des chickens is the kind called paybac.”

“Wat you mean “paybac?”
“You see the big black book on the shelf, it tells yo all about paybac.”

“How I’m gonna know about dis paybac, I can’t read.”
“Some day yo can an then you better read cause then yo got respoibility. It tells you how yo got to live in order to keep dem chickens away.”

“What do it say grandma?”
“It says everything dat am important.”

“Like what grandma?”
“Lik what you sow is what you get.”

“Do the chickens come home when I get it grandma?”
“Sometimes yes, and sometimes no. it pends on what yo sow.”

“Yo mean if I sow the wrong stuff the chickens show up?”

“Are yo sure dem the right rules grandma?”
“Oh yes chile dem are the right ones alright.”

“Grandma jus posin I forgot one of dem rules an messed up (I ain’t yo know, jus posin) then what I gonna do?”
“Lik I said it depends on which one.  Jus suposin yo forgot the biggest one, the first one then yo in big trouble.”
