Apparently, the village people realized that death by guillotine would be the only way to permanently stop Fred's ever-wagging, gossiping tongue. :)
Mobile Phone Users:
I apologize if you are having a problem reading the text of my poems on your mobile device. I use a web design mechanism which automatically shrinks or expands images, based on the screen resolution of the device that is being used. In the case of mobile phones, it shrinks the image to a size where the text is barely readable. However, if I don't use this mechanism, then the image will be full-size on your phone, and you will have to scroll a little to the right in order to read the full poem. So either you scroll right, or else use your fingers to enlarge the image. However, if you use an iPad, other tablet or desktop computer, the images will look sharp and clear, and will automatically be displayed at their full size of 500x400 pixels, 696x560 pixels, or larger.

Matthew 12:36-37, KJV
"Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell."
James 3:5-6, KJV
