The Prostitutes
This happened a long time ago. I and my Karate master went visiting to the beach. My pockets in which I had kept money got wet. And then we put the cash we had, outside to dry. Immediately a flock of prostitutes came to us and started a fierce solicitation. We had a hard time driving them away.

Ham Country
Ham country was a peaceful democracy. The majority of the people there are idol worshipers. Then there are minorities like the followers of the BOOK and followers of the prophet. Many a time the idolaters have persecuted the followers of the BOOK and followers of the Prophet. Now the idol worshipers have won an election that was rigged. Some followers of the book are paraded naked for preaching the WORD and some followers of the Prophet were torched alive in a train. Now the idolaters want to change the constitution of HAM and want make into a religious country. The fate of the followers of the BOOK and the Prophet are in jeopardy.

I am an avid visitor of various countries in various continents. The only irony is that I use a finger and visit each country on a Globe. Quite a whimsical fancy I have.


She

She was my colleague in Indonesia. She was eager to sell an old computer to me. I like a fool became tempted and I had to pay through the nose. Matters didn’t end there. She invited me to her house for dinner. When I came her husband left. We talked for hours and then she took me to her bedroom and put her hands in mine. I still didn’t understand that she wanted to lie with me and do poetry.
