The quaint question set us thinking, but no sure answer came. Recall to the early morning did not unravel the mundane mystery: whether Necessity Number 1 could take place simultaneously with Necessity Number 2. Mock muscular movement would not settle the matter either, so we made an all-round resolution to pay particular attention the next morning.

In other worlds, it is all right for male artistes to be pretty portly, but even they permit only slender video vixens. Whoever knows any real women knows that the quality of womanhood does not come with size.
Jumbo size; bouncing here; flouncing there; rolling along; taking heavy, sure steps; each dance move delivered deliberately, displaying a dash of delicious damsel delight. There’s no damage done to the video. So, why leave them out?

I know that it means there will be no closed streets on that day, for the people block off the streets to use as funeral grounds. But that is cold, cold comfort.
You cannot have the benefits of the national (cosmopolitan) capital, and still cling to rudder-less, prehistoric practices – it’s our taxes!

I've thought about relationship rules, and I've come to realise clearly that talking openly about everything, right from the start, is the best way to nurture and keep a good relationship. Of course it doesn't work alone, but it ranks close to the golden rule.

Time: 11 pm.
Day: Any day.
Man Pervert (MP): How much?
Underage Girl (UG): You have to drop your pants first.
MP: Why would I want to do that?
UG: I need to see whatchu got. Price is per hour, according to size!

M. K. Ghandi
Because he was the most human of us all
Because he would have been the legitimate forerunner of the anti-apartheid movement
Because he would have managed to bring peace to the Middle East
Because you just came back from sequestration on Mars if you do not know why
Because he combines supreme talent with the fear of God and modesty - a rare thing in the 2000s
For such grace, dignity and bravery
Aung San Suu Kyi
Because she has more balls than the military in Burma
Because he has the gift of gab
William Jefferson Clinton
One politician I could trust that he really believed in what he was saying (bar Lewinsky), plus he has no prejudice or bigotry in him
For how he kept a volatile country together in the 90s

There are not many things
Before the timeless ocean
The blueness of intensity
The green eyes of jealousy
The white surf of purity
Rolling waves and lolling lave
Salty taste and lulling hum
Grades of sand as true as gold
The intimate bathe in tenderness
The gulls, the weeds, the sun and the shells
All seen and loved by generations gone
And it’s bigger that everything else
It owns the shoreline
And the sky
And the topsy-turvy brine
Even the far-off horizon line
The power to give unending pleasure
Choose the size of shore next year
Now pent-up rage bursts out at the moon
Holds the world in a low vile growl
And plays mirages of spirit lights
A slow recline in the afterglow
The ocean sleeps in silent sate.
In the drone of the balmy breeze
It is the stretching of the hills
And the tears the sky sadly spills
Thunderclap in breaking hearts
The unseen tail of poison darts
It is the picture of the sea
The still before the storm we see
It is the depth of the deep black hole
The massive ice caps in each Pole
It is the cosmic dance of stars
And the sounds of life on Mars
The great allure of muted minds
The need to see behind the blinds
The presence of stark loneliness
The blank before each ‘I confess’.
