One act tattle tale of a fable for pipsqueaks from ‘The 1001 Lankan Nights’.
The Troubadour is back around the campfire relating from the Talls chronicles of the ages how far greater than any ordinary mesmerist is The Great Franklin. He Talls-retells how, in one instance, the great man can wreak terrible vengeance when ‘his foible is foib’d’, yet, in the next instance, he can be so lovingly helpful to Tiny Nita – a child who before The Great Franklin had stopped growing at the age of four but who, after The Great Franklin, could turn out (but sweetly!) as a Sumo wrestler at the age of fourteen.
