I suggest that you wipe the smiles
From your faces my skeptic friends.
It’s true and attributable

The one that they present to you
With the tab after you’re finished
Eating their fine Chinese cuisine.
I broke it in two exposing
The faux message on the paper:
Wealth will come sooner than you think.
After leaving the restaurant

A Fool’s Discourse

Am I the fool for not killing this fly
That persistently harasses me now?
Is my respect for life absurd, awry?

Each day! Ah! But most die on the wing.
My belief is ‘live and let live’, and why?
Nothing is insignificant to me.

[Hata Bildir]
