The Gift That Keeps On Giving (retirement)

Post by eric_marsh » Sun Oct 06, 2013 8:16 pm

I'm a big guy but a grass skirt hides a lot.The Pikake Maile leaf headband is skillfully fitted as are leaf bands around my ankles and wrists. They symbolizes that I'm to be a bride. My bare breasts are old man breasts.

I'm not a virgin in the traditional sense, but I've never laid with a man. That's all that's really needed. The gods are powerful, but they're not very smart.

I'm old and I'd hate to see some bright young kid robbed of her future. So I walk to the edge and look down into the volcano.

HA!! Funny, pensive, awesome. :D This is great. The kind of drabble that makes me wish I'd thought of it first! Clearly this society has figured out a sensible way to cope with their gods' demands for virginal sacrifice.
