The Fall

by
 There was a man who found two leaves and came 
indoors holding them out saying to his parents 
that he was a tree.
To which they said then go into the yard and do not grow in the living room as your roots may ruin the carpet.
He said I was fooling I am not a tree and he dropped his leaves.
But his parents said look it is fall.
