The Great Escape

If only Leroy had distracted the guards a bit longer, they  would have made it over the fence to freedom.

Leroy had warned them to wait for nightfall before storming the fence, but they didn’t listen.

Leroy said the grass was greener on the other side, but some had been behind bars so long it had begun to grow on them.

Leroy gave up on helping the captive trees and went back to the greener grass.

    No way! How old is that fence!? Are you familiar with The Tales of Harris Burdick by Chris Van Allburg? This is a perfect fit!!
