Half-Naked Man Lay Half-Dead in Xavierville. So what.

The man was naked from the waist up. Thank god for the clothing from the waist down! He rested along the gutter, his legs clutched his bicycle. Well, I suppose it was his bike. He barely moved--or should I say he did not move. For a minute I thought he was dead.

I wonder if anyone else saw him other than me. Because nobody made a fuss out of the sight of a man lying almost lifeless along Xavierville Avenue at around 9 p.m.

I asked the lady nearby, "ate, wala bang tanod o pulis dito? ...kasi, o, baka dead na siya (pointing to the man)".

My expression of concern ended there.

A disturbing thought. You can drop dead along this avenue and no one would care. Yay!
