Ezekiel J. Krahlin

(a parable for the 21st century)

(c) 1997 by Ezekiel J. Krahlin
(Jehovah's Queer Witness)

There is an illustration that goes with my tale:

A Neanderthal caveman sits sobbing on a rock; bouquet of wilted roses resting on one knee, about to fall to the ground by the failing touch of his hand. Twenty feet away and to the left stands another caveman in arrogant rejection; back turned his suitor, arms folded in defiance; his rough face a smug grimace of denial.
