Mr Satan

by Christopher T. Dabrowski

Translated from Polish by Monika Olasek

Steve saw a black male goat.

“Who are you”, the little boy asked.

“I’m Mr Satan!”

Hidden in a bush, Mike had lots of fun, watching the scared face of his little brother.

There is nothing like a good hallucination, he thought, hiding the brain wave jammer (his latest invention) in his pocket.

Suddenly, the heavens opened and the boy saw a bearded man in a white robe.

“W-who a-are you?”, he stammered.

“I AM GOD, YOU SINNER,” roared the phantom.


The spaceman had great lots of fun, watching the fainting boy from aboard an invisible spacecraft.

There is nothing like a good hallucination, he congratulated himself, laughing his head off.
