Around mid-morning, I was at my favourite shop when a rental car pulls up and two boys got off.

They bought one carton of beer each and as they neared the car one of them tripped and fell with the carton.

After a check they found 10 bottles had broken.

When I saw the amber liquid flow towards the drains, I shed a tear for the "lost lives".

As we stood there, I thought I heard a sob from in the car.

Well, they just picked up the remaining bottles and the shop owner said he would clean the place.

I shed a silent tear and said, "Isa, sa mauma na bia".

It was such a tragedy for me.
