Curse of the Goat

The Curse Of The Goat
8 x 10 acrylic on board

Thomas Worth was an angry man who developed a habit of kicking things when he lost his temper(which was quite often) He managed to kick most of the people in his town for one reason or another. As a result, he was always alone. (Who in their right mind would want to be around someone who might kick them?)
One day while eating an apple, he bit down hard with a rotten tooth. The pain shot through him quickly and his temper flared up as usual. He turned and saw a goat grazing in the field next to him. He rushed over to it and kicked it.
The goat stood up on its hind legs and cursed him, “ I’ll make your face just like mine!” The sight of the goat frightened him and he fainted. When he awoke a few hours later and staggered drunkenly toward home, he noticed everyone staring at him strangely. He wasn’t sure what to make of it. Then he stumbled on a rock and almost fell face-first into a puddle. As he righted himself, he caught a glimpse of his reflection in the water. A curious thing had happened, . . . somehow the goat’s curse had come true.
From that day on, he did his best to stave off his previously unmanageable temper, in the hope that his appearance might change back. It never did.
