Using prose or poetry, write a fable.
A couple were driving to a friend's place for dinner when they began arguing over which way they should drive - through the scenic, but longer, route, or take the expressway and get there more quickly. The wife, as usual, wore her husband out with her arguing and they took the longer scenic route. Halfway there they discovered a horrible sight on the road. Three decapitated heads - the bodies laying several feet away. One head sat in front of the other two, staring right at them. The wife screamed and shrieked while the husband quickly turned the car around and went all the way back to the expressway. Finally, after they calmed down, the husband turned to the wife and said, "I hope you've learned your lesson from this!"
"What lesson?," she wondered.
"Always take the quicker route. When you go the long way, you never know what lies.....a head."
