A Beggar Never Complains?


But one day when somebody offered him a Nasi goreng plate
From an Indonesian Restaurant,
He said; 'Sorry Sir! It's too heavy and a rich diet it seems
I used to cold stale meals and don't know my kinky bowels
Could face the unexpected challenge? '

    May seem silly but could be the truth... his poor stomach may
    not be used to good food.
    'Beggars can't be choosey'... but they are human still...
