What the King Giveth, the King Taketh Away [Quote - 70]

Published Categorised as Quote-Unquote, Quote-Unquote – Book I (1-100)

It was a long time ago.

“We were both in the mosque. This super-good Muslim and me. But he was a really good guy, though. Then he suddenly comes rushing to me and says: “Do you know the king has issued a decree for democracy?”

He was all excited. He could barely contain his joy.

I say to him: “Don’t you know what the king giveth, the king taketh away?”

He looked at me, puzzled, even pained I thought. I am not sure he understood what I was saying.

Or maybe he did. And I just burst his bubble.

Should I feel terrible thinking about it? I don’t know. He was a good man.” (Dr. Pasha)
