No Lives Available, Only Coffins

No Lives Available, Only Coffins

- Translated by Moeun Chhean Nariddh from the Dec. 8 edition of the People's Police Newspaper [Nokobal Pracheachun]

This was the thunder coming from a few motorbikes, virtually all of whose drivers were young boys in their early

twenties and those who had just stopped suckling their mothers' milk some years ago.

Apparently, the hair of these youngsters was cut somehow like coconut to be sent to the ghost of their grandmothers

and like that of the Thai '93 hair style.

Of course, it goes without saying that their driving skills were absolutely amazing. They were overtaking all kinds

of vehicles on the street, including a Soviet-made lorry.

A while later, the loud noise of these vehicles could no longer be heard.

Poor boy, one of the fastest drivers, was lying by the tire of the lorry with his motorbike, which could explain

the reason of the quiet moment.

They were very lucky to be born with such a happy life. How bored they would be if they had no motorbikes! Maybe

they thought Phnom Penh was the international ground for motorbike races, because they were trying to show off

their abilities without any control committees to set scores. Yes, they really are stronger than the OMG gang of

Italy.

To this, parents should strictly look after their children, despite their having a great amount of money. Their

sons should be reading books, newspaper, etc., in the libraries or at home for the sake of their knowledge.

Also, they should know that all their money cannot afford lives for their children; only buy coffins of all sizes

and kinds, and their thoughts.
