The Mayor’s poem

basmalah piccola

The village mayor wrote a poem and read it to Nasrudin.

“Did you like the poem?” he asked.

“No, not really,” Nasrudin replied, “it wasn’t very good.”

The mayor was enraged, and he sentenced Nasrudin to three days in jail. The next week, the mayor called Nasrudin in his office to read him another poem he had written. When the mayor finished reading, he turned to Nasrudin and asked, “Well, what do you think of this one?”

Nasrudin did not say anything, and immediately began walking away. The mayor inquired, “Just where do you think you’re going?’

“To jail!“ Nasrudin replied.
