There are lots of people who wish to imitate others. They should be able to figure out whatever is good or bad for them. The issue is: don't follow blindly.

The Skilled Orangutans

The Skilled Orangutans
They aped the Europeans by
taking sunbath from 1300 hr to 1500 hr.
At 0900 hr they took cups of coffee
without milk or sugar
and sat under the morning sun
sipping, and reading the Straits Times
not knowing that reading under the sun
without a pair of dark glasses will damage the retina.
It was said two hours of sunbath
would increase the sexual prowess of men.
Is it true?
Why didn’t the medical science confirm it?
Surely it would be cheaper than viagra?
Is this the reason why
during the cold winter months
in Northern Europe young ladies
take vacation and spend four weeks
in sunny Singapura?
Doing sunbathing, eating hot Indian curries
and Chinese bak kut teh?
