- "Poetic Justice": Because James Elliot didn't like what he perceived as rubbish, he dedicated his life into destroying the life of a neighbor who was nothing more, than a poor, kindly old garbage man. Who made toys for kids and loved to take care of animals. A man who never did anything to antagonize his fellow neighbors, including James. Yet James spreads a Smear Campaign against him which causes the local children's parents to think he was a molester, his pets to be taken away and bad Valentine's Day cards sent to him. The last of which made poor Grimsdyke hang himself. He gets even from beyond the grave, but it doesn't make it less sad.
- "Shoe Button Eyes", a Christmas tale about a little blind boy, his teddy bear with green shoe buttons for eyes (hence the title) and his evil, alcoholic stepfather whose favorite pastime is tormenting the little boy. It is just as sad as "Poetic Justice".
