“TIM!” I roared, as the fire engulfed even more of my product.

“Boss!” he yelled, as he through gasoline on yet more of my product. He grinned at me as the flames grew higher in the night sky.

“But boss,” he cried, pleading eyes glinting with the reflection of the fire he’d just started, “You asked me to do this!”

“I said ‘Learn it’,” as I threw the manual I’d left on top of the hay barrel at his stupid head, “Not burn it!”

I swore to myself over and over as the flames gobbled my precious marijuana harvest up and reduced it to ash and cinder.
