    And the puppets killed their master.
    I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew.

    Saddened, for death would never come.
    I'd rather have questions that I can't answer than answers that I can't question.

    My Lord is waiting for me.
    "The time has come," the Walrus said,
    "To talk of many things:
    Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
    Of cabbages--and kings--
    And why the sea is boiling hot--
    And whether pigs have wings."

    I thank everyone who has joined thus far.
    In my opinion, there`s no concrete meaning of it. I think Hemingway Has written this story because of he wanted other people to discuss it very long time. and he achieved it! maybe there`s a lot of
    philosophy in this six words. Maybe it`s just a
    stupidity... I don`t know
    Here`s my six-words story:
    Kill me. I`m cruel zombie.

    If Hemingway just wanted us to keep in wonder by writing this six-word story, then we could say all his others works are written by the same rule. Because they are too widely discussed. There are lots of controversy surrounding them.

    I believe Hemingway did mean something with that story. Such a writer who was a master in laconic forms would have done nothing just for fun or for the sake of stupidity.
