SOME BUT NOT OTHERS
“they have dvds and cds and movie,
But they still have just hole in the floor for toilet!”
He had made a good point.
These third world countries
Had adopted some modern habits
But not others.
I mean, squat toilets in fancy shopping malls?
And no toilet paper or spray faucet,
Just a hose slashed at the end,
Laying in the filthy grime of piss and shit.
You could go to the ATM machine
And stick your card in and pull out cash,
But you had to dip a bucket into a tub of water,
And dump it into the squat toilet,
And do this maybe ten times,
To flush your shit down the pipes.
“well,” I said to him. “at least it’s worth a laugh.”
