To Be Poor


TRIBE Member
I recall I met a woman once, who had a dog. And she complained heavily.

woman> "These people have no respect for animals."

I couldn't help but notice the diamonds on her fingers, and of course, the small yappy dog on the leash.

me> "Well, don't you think there might be bigger problems here?"
woman> "I guess..."
me> "Like malaria, starvation, you know, weird witchcraft and stuff?"
woman> "Yeah I get where you're coming from but we can't even buy decent dog food here."

It was a gorgeous hotel, on the Indian Ocean. Granite floors, that were actually flat, which was rare for the place.

me> "Well I hear there's a grocery store downtown."
