Excuse Me!

autumn

Superstition
spirits
taboos
Where do you draw the line?

naked idiots,
urinating, defacing,
shouting profanities,
Has moral been misplaced?

The absence of hudud – floods
serving alcohol – MH370 go missing
slaughter of buffalos – Nepal earthquake
To pin the cause on man’s superstition.

Culture and belief are linked,
Grandmothers tales to be heeded,
common sense and respect for nature,
be safe instead of being sorry.

To travel to foreign lands,
a guest in another’s home,
keep within the Etiquettes,
have good manners and high morals.
