memoirs, art and fragments by Thomas Milner

Human weakness

Where do you stand on obese people who put artificial sweetener in their tea while munching on a large slice of chocolate cake?

Chain-smokers who drink decaffeinated coffee?

People who drive to the park on weekends with bicycles on the roof of their car?

Teetotallers who drink non-alcoholic beer?

Vegetarians who eat meatless hamburgers?

Weight-conscious women who eat/drink endless low-calorie yoghurts?

Pudgy teenagers who wrap their faces around a Big Mac & French fries while delicately sipping diet cokes

Don’t cha just love them all?

WOODLAND PATH – PAINTING by THOMAS MILNER

How I wish I loved the human race

How I wish I loved its silly face

And when I was introduced to one

How I wish I thought – what fun!
