The Flashlight

I was outside during the day, shining my flashlight. 

The Sun said, “What are you doing?” 

I said that I was helping. 

The Sun said, “Wow, you’re really making a big difference!” 

I said thanks. 

My flashlight said, “The Sun is being supercilious.” 

I whispered that I agreed but it helps to look like an idiot to your benefactor so they keep wanting to help you.
