The Club of Veggies and the Hundred Meat Balls


A Short Story

The Club of Veggies and the Hundred Meat Balls

A group of non-alcohol-drinkers and vegetarian friends decided to come together weekly for a vegetarian meal with non-alcoholic drinks, prepared on rotational basis by the individual members.

They called their group the Club of Veggies, with membership open to any non-alcohol-drinking vegetarian.

A group of alcohol-drinking meat-eaters, who nonetheless identify themselves as non-alcoholic vegetarians, writes to the club requesting membership, all the while insisting on bringing alcohol and meat dishes when it’s their turn to cook.

The Club of Veggies refuses to grant them membership on the basis that their requests violate the rules of the club.

The meat-eaters start picketing the club because they feel persecuted, accusing its members of discrimination, bigotry and meatophobia. They then organise themselves and begin a regular demonstration to celebrate their meat eating and to condemn the Club of Veggies for being such hateful persecutors. Later they further intensify their campaign, lobby the government and demand legislation that will allow them to join the club while being meat-eaters who identify as vegetarians.

The Club of Veggies declare time and again that they have no issues with meat-eaters or alcohol-drinkers, they can eat meat as much and as often as they like. They emphasise that they do not wish to force vegetarianism on anyone, all they want is to have a club where they can cook and enjoy vegetarian dishes together.

Meat-eaters lobbies persist for years until one day their efforts bear fruit and a new law comes to pass: the Club of Veggies must not only accept membership of the meat eaters, it must also provide the space and funding for meat-eaters to cook a hundred meat balls every day, to be offered to the Club members with a selection of alcoholic drinks, all with the financial, physical, and moral help from the Club of Veggies.

By law, the adults in the Club of Veggies are not required to eat the meat balls or to drink the alcoholic drinks, but for the sake of teaching tolerance and acceptance, their children are required to do so.

The world cheers hooray and celebrates the great victory.

The End

PS: The author of the story has since been prosecuted for meatophobia, bigotry, and for inciting hatred against a victimised group.

 

Palestine, South Africa and the Myth of One State


 

 

The Story of a Land


 

Once upon some golden days

In a far away land above the clouds

There lived and thrived a tiny town

So close to Heaven, they called it Holy

A fig tree, bed of roses and a mulberry

A door, two windows, a grassy mud roof

Therein lived a girl with a cheeky grin

She fell in love as she opened her eyes

The moment she saw this land of glory

Whose heart wouldn’t melt and sway

Before this beauty, dazzled, anyway?

A hymn of angels, melody so sweet

For yearning souls, supreme retreat

Mistaken for Arcadia, as you meander

Tranquil serene, you’d think you’ve passed away

Scarlet poppies adorned her face

Blushed her cheeks with a hint of grace

Upon sleepy hill, rejoiced her children

Between her meadows, ran up and down

Her name they sung morning to twilight

Palestine, Palestine, Palestine

While she dozed off, one peaceful night

Catastrophe fell, upon her sacred ground

Hoards from hell came dashing in

Grabbed her neck with blood-soaked hands

Smashed her head against the wall

Slashed her throat with an army knife

Left her bleeding, from that day on

The land that’s holy fell to the ground

Closed her eyes, into coma nightmare

Cast in a spell of agony and pain

Her glass coffin you’ve already seen

Daily display on your TV screen

Sleeping beauty lies so still

Awaiting her prince in amble fortitude

A prince of peace to kiss her back to life

Heal her wounds with love grandiose

Sing her hallowed name, solemn and divine

Hold her splendid soul forevermore

Palestine, Palestine, Palestine

Community Standards, Excuse me?


Share

In this post I would share with readers the embarrassing truth about the fallacy of the so called Facebook (FB) “Community Standards” according to which they ban, block and delete posts and comments of people.

In the images below, you will see some of my posts (including poems) of which I was accused of breaking their “Community Standards,” banned, blocked or prevented from tagging people.

At the bottom of the page, you will see two images of pages that I reported because they were explicitly spewing hate speech against Islam and Muslims, but I was told by FB that these pages “do not go against” their “Community Standards.”

According to Facebook, calling Islam a “Dirty Cult of Pigs” and Muhammed the “Seal of Pigs” does not go against their “Community Standards,” yet these two poems, A Tear for the World and Evening Prayer, do. (!!!)

Here you can see that according to Face Book, calling Islam a “Dirty Cult of Pigs” and calling Muhammed the “Seal of Pigs”  does not go against their “Community Standards”
