Peacocks Screaming

That day, I got kicked out of college.  It was the first and last time I saw the Principal.  When I said I didn’t know what I was going to do next, I thought I was lying, but it turned out I was telling the truth.  He put down his pen and stood up.  ‘Well, the best of luck.’  He held open the door.  That was it.
