The Shallow Lot

In order to know what was really on their minds, I decided to take a seat at the table and listen to their cant about culture over a Musang King durian dessert, which surprisingly didn’t offend my olfactory as much as I’d feared prior to having a taste.

But it didn’t take me long to realise that I was in the company of a shallow lot, who only seemed to take pleasure in fault-finding, as if that was the very fruit of their passions.

And the exercise of their thoughts, as expressed through language choice, was clearly not elevated. Their insults too, only served to reveal a lack of courage and the misapplication of intentions.
