The Entertainer



Page Count: 



Age Rating:

When one´s life depends on entertaining. Literally.

This is a symbolic telling, of being hung by a thread.

A man is imprisoned in a cell, and is brought out every day only to entertain a king.
His very life depends on succeeding.

There is nothing, or very little to spark up his imagination.

On this day, we witness, how he narrowly escapes decapitation, upon succeeding to make the
king laugh.

Tomorrow is another day.
