"What Goes Around-Comes Around"

Updated: May 25, 2023

A story on Karma. A family mockingly denies a cow a spot to rest only to have the tables turn on them. In the end, they need the cow.



“Honor, Loyalty & Valor.”

After being milked all day.

Mr. Cow wanted to sleep and rest his back.


He walked over to a haystack.

So he can lay on it to rest his back.

After nearly tripping over a brown hog.

Mr. Cow arrived to the haystack.

And laying on it was a brown dog.


“Mooooo-ve!” said Mr. Cow.

“Wooooo-f!” said the dog.

“Mooooo-ve!” said Mr. Cow.

But the dog just smiled then turned his head.


Mr. Cow went to rest on a brown wooden bench.

But when he arrived, he saw that a cowboy sat on the brown wooden bench.


“Mooooo-ve!” said Mr. Cow.

“Howdy!” said the cowboy.

“Mooooo-ve!” said Mr. Cow.

But the cowboy just smiled then turned his head.


Mr. Cow decided to rest on the brown porch.

But when he arrived, he saw that a lady holding a baby sat on the brown porch.


“Mooooo-ve!” said Mr. Cow.

“Ooooooh!” said the lady.

Then she looked over to her baby.

And said, “Look, it’s a cow!”

“Mooooo-ve!” said Mr. Cow.

But the baby smiled then turned his head.


Mr. Cow decided sleep on a pile of brown leaves.

But when he arrived, he saw a girl playing with

her doll while sitting on the pile of brown leaves.



“Mooooo-ve!” said Mr. Cow.

“Nooooooo!” said the girl.

“Mooooo-ve!” said Mr. Cow.

But the girl smiled then turned her head.


Mr. Cow became very upset.

He just wanted to sleep and rest his back.



He searched around and saw a brown van.

So he ran over to the brown van, laid down next to it then fell asleep.


A few minutes later, he awoke to a scream.

It was the lady holding the baby.


The cowboy on the bench grabbed the lady and the baby.

And they ran towards the van.


While running,

The cowboy screamed to the dog, “Come on boy!”

The woman screamed to the girl, “Come on girl, all of you come to the van!

The baby has gotten sick,

We have to rush and get some medicine,

From the doctor’s office which closes at six!”


But when they all arrived to the van,

They saw Mr. Cow lying their blocking the van door.



“Mooooo-ve!” said the cowboy.

“Mooooo!” said Mr. Cow.

“Mooooo-ve!” said the lady.

But Mr. Cow just smiled then turned his head.


The woman began to speak as she gently rubbed the baby’s forehead,

“What goes around comes around,” is what she said.
