AT RISE:

Anger Management the Star is eating his starflakes. Tha Don is taking his morning bath in the waterfall.


(Anger Management hears animals crying. He feels sad. Sooner or later he might end up dying. He’s been hearing those noises for a very long time.)
Anger Management
Why don’t they stop doing what they doing? They won’t get their wishes if they die. I been hearing these noises since I was little. I think there should be a stop to it.
(After Tha Don is finished eating animals, he goes to his little spot and starts talking to the stars. Anger Management caught his attention)
The Don
I need a girl
Anger Management
You won’t get one if you keep doing what your doing.
Tha Don
I’m lonely and tired of being by myself.
Anger Management
I could probably make your wish come true.
Tha Don
How could you do that?
Anger Management
Because I’m the one who make animal wishes come true. But I can’t because you keep killing innocent animals.
Tha Don
I never knew wishes could come true. I never knew animals could wish on something they want.
Anger Management
You is like my brother, that’s why I never had told you and you probably wouldn’t have believed me. I didn’t want to hurt you in any offensive way.
Tha Don
Man, you could of kept it real and told me from the get go. You probably would have broken me down at the same time.
Anger Management
Yeah, that’s why I never told you.
Tha Don
You can tell me what’s on your mind.
Anger Management
But you don’t know what it’s like to lose someone you love.
Tha Don
True, I still got both of my parents.
Anger Management
I lost my mom from toxic fuel at age 12 and it really hurts to lose someone who always kept it real and never kept a secret.
Tha Don
Well, why aren’t you like your mom. Keep it real. Don’t keep secrets.
Anger Management
Man, after I lost my mom I just started taking anger out on other animals because I thought I wouldn’t be able to make it without my mother. I feel naked. I feel like something stripped me out of my clothes. And I had no one to teach me right from wrong.
Tha Don
I don’t know how that feels. I still got my parents. I don’t want to go through the same thing you went through. That sounds kind of rough.
Anger Management
Man, you lucky you still got your parents. I wish I could rewind the hand of time and bring her back. I could make your wish come true, but at the same time I can’t because you keep killing innocent animals and I can’t make their wishes come true. And if you keep killing them, I might end up dying.
Tha Don
Well, it doesn’t really matter to me cuz’ I want a girl. I need one real bad and if I can’t find one, I’ll keep eating up all the animals. Because I am starving, hungry B.
Anger Management
You don’t care about our friendship cuz’ I feel like you and me are brothers. I’ve seen a lot of anger in my life. Animals getting eaten for no reason when I was growing up. I started hearing noises. I was nosy rosy and always getting into things and finding out things. It feels funny like a feeling you won’t find out until you get angry. It feels crazy. Like I want to do stuff I don’t want to do. Through all the experiences you been through, building up since you was little. You got to let it out some day. I sometimes get emotional, too. I break down thinking about everything in my past-my good memories, my moms and wish I could bring her back, but I can’t. Because it’s been done already, and everything happens for a reason. Plus, she will never be forgotten. I can’t get peace and quiet! If you keep killin’ animals I won’t be able to fill their wishes! And I might end up losing control and falling from the sky!
Tha Don
Well, I need my girl. If you complete my wish, you might get what you want. And I might get what I want, too. Because you been seeing my bones and my ribcage. Starving, stressing, and you won’t see animals getting passed through the cipher anymore. And you can tell I’m fiendin’ for my one and only true love…My fear is getting eaten by a gang of hyenas. I know I did a lot of bad things to a lot of innocent animals. Karma will come back sooner or later. And I don’t want that to happen cuz’ I’m scared to death.
Anger Management
I want nothing but peace and quiet and I just want to make all their wishes come true. If I don’t make them come true, I might just end up losing control of myself, doing something I regret.
Tha Don
Well, like I said all I need is my girl and then you’ll get your peace and quiet. And you won’t have to do something you regret, like fallin’ from the sky. And another star might take your place. And I know you don’t want that to happen.
Anger Management
Man, first be real. Don’t lie to me. Don’t try to motivate me to do something I might do. You might turn the tables and trick me. So, don’t be putting on a front.
Tha Don
I’m gonna keep doing what I’m doing. I’m just gonna have fun. If I do get eaten by a gang of hyenas, life will still go on with or without me.
Anger Management
Man, you really believe you going to get eaten by a gang eaten by hyenas. You can’t lie to a liar. But if it does happen, you’ll just be another good relative, gone away like my moms.
(Tha Don starts walking around trying to find his love. But he ends up snatchin’ up a animal from a flock. He had a feelin’ he was being followed. He looks back and he sees a bunch of hyenas in back of him.
Tha Don
Damn, I got myself in some trouble. Now I can’t get myself out. So I might as well try to fight back. All of them!
(One bites his tail. The other two jumps on his back. The other 3 jumps on his neck. Another one jumps on his tail to help the other one. Another one jumps on his face and starts bitin’ and scratchin’ him at the same time, while the others are tearin’ his body apart.)
Man, I knew I should have listened to Anger Management. Now I’m lying in my own blood. I wish I didn’t do what I did because payback is horrible.
(Tha Don dies.)
Anger Management
I see him from the top, where I was. I could tell. He was the biggest and largest, the only liger in the woods. He was lying in a big river of blood. And after, it just hits me. Like after my mom passed. I feel sad cuz I lost my only friend. All the heat is building up in me. I look like a blinking light. A bomb that is ready to go off at any moment, 5..4..3..2..1 Blast off like a shooting star, like fireworks, on the 4th of July.
End of Play.
