Old Wanderings

Went down to the family graveyard once again to say a prayer and look at the gravestones. I drew a map of the layout and noted down the dates they passed away.
Met some elderly people along the way. They seemed lost and lost in the past. One, an old man walking through the fields in torn clothes and muddied hands and feet was once
a highly educated English teacher. He had been turned out by his own family over money and went mad. Now a vagrant of the soil and childhood.
Paid more sweeteners to public officials today. Justice and expediency serves only those with money in this land.
Bought fish at the market today. Tasted OK, there were a lot more bones than he said there would be.
