One Bird Too Far

By Hugh Mackey

When they hear I punched a kid, most people freak out. But what the fuck do you want? Four months this little shit's going after my son so bad he can't sleep. Four months of this psychopath playing his dopey teachers like a fiddle. Joins my boy's ball team just to torture him. Finds out he's scared of birds. And he decides to jump him the same moment I'm seeing him call my son fat on Facebook.

My son calls me every Saturday. He misses me, but he says he sleeps fine now. So do I.
