IS NOT A JOKE
CAN BE SILLY
BOOKS BY AUTHOR
The article has plain stories based
on human life. The objective is to help the reader have a relook at
life. The realization is that we are not the only ones who are
troubled and it is not true that our problems, as much as they may
seem unique, can be solved because others have gone through the same.
Just make the best of life because even the rich cry!
“All things are full of labour;
man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the
ear filled with hearing. The thing that hath been, it is that which
shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and
there is no new thing under the sun. Is there anything whereof it may
be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which
was before us.” Eccl. 1: 8-10 (KJV)
The final days of Alexander the
Great offer all humanity a moral lesson about life while here on
The Great conqueror, on his way home
from successful military campaigns fell mortally ill in Babylon. On
his death bed, perhaps, he realized that after creating a big empire,
he could not even defeat fever that was fast ravaging his body. So
the young and full of life King, realized that he too was going to
join the dead as those who had preceded him and those who had been
dispatched by his sharp sword. Lying on his deathbed in the palace of
Nebuchadnezzar II, he was able to visualize the unworthiness his
reserve of vast treasures which included vast amounts of gold,
silver, and jewels, which he had accumulated through his conquests.
Even his mighty army could not stop death from taking him away.
His desired to reach home just to
look at the face of his mother just one last time was unfathomable.
But he knew inside his inner heart that he was not going to make it
as he felt the sickness ravaging his body each day mercilessly. In
ten days, Alexander the Great was a fallen King.
Just before his death, he called his
generals and instructed them on his three wishes which he wanted that
they be carried out to the word. For respect, his generals promised
to carry out his wishes the way he stipulated them.
His first wish was that his
physicians alone had to carry his body bearing casket
His second wish was that his
precious treasures were to be strewn along the path his casket will
be carried to the graveyard.
His third and last wish was that
both his hands were to be let hanging out of the casket for all the
mourners to see.
So the King had spoken and no
General dared ask him the reasons save one General who was the King’s
favorite who dared to ask the dying King the meaning of his wishes
with the assurance that the Kings wishes would be carried out.
After pleasantries and assurance of
allegiance by the General, the King spoke to the general thus;
“I would like the world to
know of these three fundamentals: I want my physicians to carry my
coffin because people should realize that no doctor can really cure
anybody. They are powerless and cannot save a person from the
clutches of death. My second wish to strew gold, silver and other
precious stones on the way to the graveyard is to let the people know
that though I spent all my life accumulating riches, not even a grain
of gold will come with me when I leave this world. I want people to
understand that it is a sheer waste of time, energy, and peace of
mind when one yearns to be rich. With my third wish of having my
hands dangling out of the coffin, I want people to know that I came
empty handed into this world and likewise will go empty handed from
We should be inspired by words of
Paul’s letter to Timothy about this aspect of human behavior and
misunderstand of this mortal life.
“But godliness with contentment
is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is
certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us
be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation
and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men
in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of
all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the
faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” I Tim
6: 6-10 (KJV)
Therefore, why should someone waste
time on work that they do not enjoy? It has been said that patience,
passion, and dedication come easily only when one loves what they do.
Opinion of others cannot be the canon that measures happiness, it
would be unwise to fear the opinion of others. The best is to listen
to your inner voice. Be a legend to others, not to everyone because
that would be asking too much.
Be responsible and take full control
of your life for the things that happen to you. Work and strive hard
to limit bad habits and try to lead a healthier life. Remember to
have fun; life is short and full of treachery. Shape our life based
on your decisions, not the decisions of others. Be grateful for the
people around you, your friends and relatives will always be a vast
source of strength and love. Do not take your friends and relatives
says she/he is single, what would actually be the meaning of the
term? How would one describe a person who is in a multi-relationship?
What would be a person who belongs to everyone and no one in
particular? Thus, it would be hard to describe a sexually energetic
adult as single, except in the case of human male, an impotent man.
But the impotent man would probably still hang around some girl to
keep up appearance. A majority of the supposedly single people tend
to pass themselves off as single because it probably guarantees them
an easy lay. A person who says she/he is single demonstrates a
deficiency of commitment or an insatiable appetite for the opposite
member. Many of those who claim to be single are haunted by the fear
for commitment and seek refuge in the word ‘I am single’ hoping
that eventually they will find someone who can take them in with
Using the word ‘single’ to
describe a supposedly nil-adult-relationship status is an oxymoron.
If we think of it, no one is continually single by the word. It is
not possible that a guy or a lady can claim to be single when they
are busy humping each other ‘together’ day and night.
A man who claims to be single may
simply just not have a ring on his finger. What that actually means
is that there is no commitment yet. He just does not have a nagging
wife and toddlers marauding in the house. If there are any kids, then
he is probably a co-parent or a deadbeat dad so that he can still
keep claiming that he is single.
For the woman, she might not have
clawed and fanged little monsters for kids or a cheating drunken man,
who pretends to be a husband cum dad; but that does not make her
single in any way. She gets sex-intended calls from a ‘starved’
guy at near midnight who sends her a screenshot of his ‘engorged’
third middle leg. The message is very clear and she would probably
jump into the next available transport and zoom away to the guy’s
den for a congruence of two ‘single’ and mingling adults.
Such liaisons are mere sexual
marathons and even as they engage in the midnight act of thigh and
rod, their minds are wondering over to the next lay on the morrow!
They do not display emotion, if any, it is for the moment with
pretended sincerity display, and once the flesh is satisfied, they
want to go back to their single state as soon as possible to avoid
attachments and commitments. For them it is nothing, just plain
fornication. Yet, the sex could be so good, that even after they get
married to different people if they ever take up the challenge, they
would still levitate towards each other for rematches.
There is the ‘smack down’ that
comes to the lady with the brand ‘single’ written all over him,
he drives his ‘single’ lady nuts. This ‘smack down, guy opens
the floodgates of romantic pleasures to the woman, he can make her
yank her weave and leave her throat hoarse and sore from screams and
yells of pleasure. But this guy is often broke and looks like the
bottom of her handbag, but compensates for his inadequacies by being
a stud in the shack. However, not even in the after-world would she
marry him. Despite all such kind of orgasmic sex, a woman would still
describe herself as single the next day after!
But the most abused logic of the
word single is in the case of friends with mutual benefits. This may
involve midnight booty calls, but there is more to it than just
sexual escapades. A person who shares benefits on friendly basis with
another is someone who is more than just a friend; such people often
can share almost everything. In fact, if they are not married they
could be in serious relationships.
For any lady, when you end up at
your single or not single guy’s house, get drunk silly and both of
you wake up naked by each other’s side the following morning on his
divan with sheepish grins on your faces and you just get dressed,
brush your teeth, comb your hair and walk out like nothing happened,
that’s when you should know at the back of your mind that you have
crossed the threshold into the heaven of friends with benefits. These
relationships often have no strings attached. Occasionally, the
married ones will come along with their marital woes, and the
unmarried friend will offer a shoulder to cry on which will in most
cases be followed by therapeutic act of rod and flesh.
Then there are the women who call
themselves the sponsored lot but declare themselves single because
they know their relationships are on shaky grounds. In any case,
these relationships are built for mutual benefit and based on use of
each other generally with a materialistic taste. Perhaps this is
grounded on the “old King’s philosophy” with a modern touch.
“Now King David was old and
stricken in years; and they covered him with clothes, but he gat no
heat. Wherefore his servants said unto him, Let there be sought for
my lord the king a young virgin: and let her stand before the king,
and let her cherish him, and let her lie in thy bosom, that my lord
the king may get heat. So they sought for a fair damsel throughout
all the coasts of Israel, and found Abishag a Shunammite, and brought
her to the king.” I Kings 1: 1-3
The young supple woman would then
work on the aged, creaked bones, the dry saggy skin, and try to
jump-start a wrinkly old organ which its fire has ebbed away; and in
exchange, she will be showered with all sorts of goodies like cash, a
good house, and holidays abroad. These women are anything between a
mistress and a concubine.
Anyone who says he/she is single yet
has secret rendezvous with sexual partners for sexual liaisons is an
outright liar. Singleness is just an idea!
A MARRIED MAN
is a story about a Christian woman, Jane, who is in a relationship
with a married man, Paul. Jane thinks that she is greatly in love
with Paul and says so when she visits a counselor. Paul has two
children in his marriage and Jane thinks he loves her because he
broke her virginity and managed to impregnate her. Now she has a baby
with him bringing a test to her Christian believes and practice.
While speaking to her counselor, she kept insisting that the man
deeply loved her besides the idea that he is the one who broke her
virginity. They have had the relationship for four years and now they
have a one year-old baby. Her family has made several inquiries about
their relationship but she has kept details about him secret because
she does not want the embarrassment of having a child with a married
Jane has toyed with the idea of
walking out of the relationship but Paul will not let her. He always
tells her how much he loves her and that she satisfies his desires.
The dilemma of Jane is that she has never tried to be in a
relationship with another man.
Jane’s situation borders on
naiveté experience, come to think of it, she is carrying out a
relationship with a married who is keeping her in the shadows. Her
Christian values are brought to the test by her own actions. She has
had unprotected sex with a married man. She has not reached the
position of repentance. If she imagines that the man truly loves her,
then she must accept the position of a mistress, a concubine, or a
second wife. However, Christian values negate all the three
positions. If she continues having unprotected sex with Paul, they
will in no time have a second baby. If Jane gets a second pregnancy,
then that will be two children from the married Paul.
