Day Seventy-Two: "Georgie Porgie" by Rudyard Kipling


A Burmese woman marries Georgie Porgie with visions of grandeur, of what her life will be with him when ultimately, she only wants to be free of her life in Burma. She contemplates the loose love life of Georgie and accepts it as her fate in a way. She is good enough. She can handle it. Embracing those things gives her power and takes it away from him. He doesn't know it and that is the beauty of this story.

What a nice job by a heavyweight!
