Puranmal Nutberries

Delicious bars of chewy dates and figs with nuts!

From Mustaffa Shopping Centre. Found at the cooler section since these need to be refrigerated.

These would make great gifts except that one would need to keep them cool.

A simple message or sign

The baby mouse, she pleaded
"Please Mr Speaker, a Simple Message or Sign if you will please. For me to know if you have woken. For me to know if the hearing is on."

No simple message or sign. None at all.
Pure silence.
Till the baby mouse found out belatedly that court was adjourned.

The three boxes of gold

The Crown Prince, the Crown Prince
He wouldn't see beyond the three boxes of gold. He wouldn't and would not.

Three boxes of cardboard he did lay his eyes on but what glitter he saw.

The palace maids could see none of sparkle as did the farmers and peasants who till the land.

But like the merrymen who praised the emperor for the fine clothes that really was not there, the palace maids had nary a choice,

But to retrieve the 3 boxes of cardboard and polished and scrubbed.
