Billy the Greek

It was time for him to go. No more free gourmet coffee.

“This is it! he said.

“Good luck. Sorry what they did to your economy man.” I shook his hand.

“Don’t worry. Nobody wants to see America fall” he answered.

“Really? Because I know 3 of them that will let the whole world go ‘Planet of the Apes’ before they ever fess up.”

” No way in H.E.Double L.” he laughed.

And then he was gone.

A grandma with disabled family bought his place. One morning the ceiling fell in on them as they slept and they ran out screaming into the street.

“H.E. Double L’s Bells” I mumbled to myself. “Hope he’s a better economist than he is roofer.”
