Read an Excerpt


The closing lines of the book:

The Party’s over, but the pain lingers.
 
Napoleon’s Animal Farm cultivated the worst, most dangerous seeds. Seeds unfit for the land, but seeds that grow like cancer in human hearts – lies, hatred, jealousy, and filth. And what a harvest Napoleon and his cronies brought home. Sad.
 
Four who escaped becoming statues in the park decided to branch into the arts. They got together and formed a quartet; named it “The Mar a Lago Barbershop Quartet.”
 
They sang mostly trash, and found audiences in barns and farmyards. They raked in a ton of money and ended up paying no taxes because they quickly made it to the group of the richest 1% in the land.
 
Not everybody’s always so lucky. Not only pigs, but other well-meaning animals as well, gave Napoleon their fervent loyalty and allegiance. He could have done a lot of good, but he wasted everything, squandered power, trust, and expectations. Many of Napoleon’s followers, many of them deeply religious, were greatly disappointed. They all seemed to have forgotten something, something they SHOULD have remembered -
 
In his memorable ‘Sermon on the Mount’ Jesus Christ had said, “"Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces." (Matthew 7.6)
 
If only Jesus could take to Twitter.
