Terrible and Horrible

Terrible et Horrible

On a beautiful day in August, panic seizes the eastern kingdom again: Terrible is back. People are terrified because Terrible is insatiable: Terrible swallows up all he can swallow up. Terrible gulps down all he can gulp down. Terrible devours all he can devour.
The panic-stricken farmers try to hide the cows, pigs and chickens. But to no avail. Terrible always finds a way to crunch them. The panic-stricken harvesters try to harvest the wheat, barley and oats fields. But to no avail. Terrible always finds a way to chew them up.
Terrible eats it all in one go, be it an animal or a plant.
Exasperated, the people of the eastern kingdom come to complain to the king:
- Enough is enough! It can not go on any longer, claim the people. Send your army; do whatever you want but give us our peace back!
Annoyed by the anger of his subjects, the King gathers his whole army together to throw the intruder out of the eastern kingdom. They meet Terrible resting in the middle of the valley:
- Terrible, shouts the king, it can not go on any longer. It is the same thing each year: you come up and devastate everything in my kingdom. Enough is enough! Go for a roam to the middle realm and leave us in peace!
Impressed by the courageous King and his army, Terrible decides to leave the eastern kingdom to go to the middle one.
But in the middle kingdom, Terrible exclaims:
- What sort of kingdom is this! There are only stones. There is nothing to "terriblify"!

On a beautiful day in August, panic seizes the western kingdom again: Horrible is back. People are horrified because Horrible is loathsome: Horrible frightens all he can frighten. Horrible terrifies all he can terrify. Horrible horrifies all he can horrify.
The panic-stricken residents try to hide the dogs, cats and goldfishes. But to no avail. Horrible always finds a way to harass them. The panic-stricken parents try to hide the children, elderly and young girls. But to no avail. Terrible always finds a way to frighten them.
Terrible freezes every being with terror, be it an animal or a human.
Exasperated, the people of the western kingdom come to complain to the king:
- Enough is enough! It can not go on any longer, claim the people. Send your army; do whatever you want but give us our peace back!
Annoyed by the anger of his subjects, the King gathers his whole army together to throw the unwanted beast out of the western kingdom. They meet Horrible resting in the middle of the valley:
- Terrible, shouts the king, it can not go on any longer. It is the same thing each year: you come up and annoy my entire kingdom. Enough is enough! Go for a roam to the middle realm and leave us in peace!
Impressed by the courageous King and his army, Horrible decides to leave the western kingdom to go to the middle one.
But in the middle Kingdom, Horrible exclaims:
- What sort of kingdom is this! There are only stones. There is nothing to "horriblify"!

- Terrence! Horace! What are you doing now? The worried neighbour has phoned asking if they were slaughtering a pig and Mr Aziz wants to call the fire department!
Mom shots into the garden, furious. Dear oh dear, sparks will fly!
- Oh my God, my garden! And the vegetables! What have you done? And that cat? Why is he growling at the top of the apple tree? Why is the dog lying low in his kennel?
In the middle of the gravelled path, Terrence and Horace bend their heads.
- I can't believe it! You were playing at Terrible and Horrible again! Enough of your naughtiness! Now you had better tidy it all up. Then, you get into your bedrooms and stay there until dinner!
Little kitty! Come down my little kitty.
