The Lady Who Could Sing: A Parable

There was a young lady who could sing so beautifully that she would enchant every listener. Her songs could be heard everywhere. She was very good for the music lovers.

She became rich and famous. Lots of people wanted her to sing their songs. Because she was in demand, she began demanding things — such as not allowing any of her competitors to sing. She silenced her opposition.

Time goes by, and the young lady became an old lady. Her voice had become shrill and painful to listen to. But still she insisted on singing. The music lovers are eagerly waiting for her last song because only after she departs will sweet songs be heard once again.

A certain political organization has also grown old and unbearable. Isn’t it time we heard the last of it?
