Abdul's Complaint An old man sat talking to another in a cafe in old Bahgdad, "I began my life in poverty and built a vast fortune, but am I remembered for that? No! "I started in ignorance and taught myself to read and write, not only Arabic, but Sanskrit, Persian, Greek, Latin and the language of the Franks, but am I remembered as a scholar? No" "I became a soldier and conquered for the Sultanate, but am I remembered as a soldier? No! "I made seven trips to Mecca, am I remembered as a Haji? No! "I built Hospitals, Mosques bridges and Roads, but am I remembered as a builder? No! "But make one youthful indescretion and it is remembered forever" wailed Abdul the Goat-f*cker.
