A person's life lies inside a slipper
Mr. Wall walks by
His black mole falls in
He walks home
Touches his face to find the black mole gone
He runs to the slipper
But does not see the black mole
He runs out to the yard immediately
Pinches some dirt into a black mole
Then attaches it to his face
People who come by to visit 
All say:
Mr. Wall has a mole made of dirt.

translated by Linh Dinh
