Ben Abdul Jalil Noar Edin, make this petition.

"I don't have much say in the matter,

but just a word, America.

"I read my soul by the light of her face.

"She will never again so brightly shine,

"or rise singing in the morning,

brushing stars from her hair.

"So you spared no expense, seducer.

"But for both our sakes, my enemy,

send her back to me! This I plead.

"In the name of my soul and of my people,

our revolution!

"In the name of the moon."


Ben Abdul Jalil thanks you.

May he have the typewriter back?

Of course, but I've only done ten poems.

Yes, ten poems.

He says, "A life cannot wish for more."


Mum, what did he mean - only ten poems?

I'm afraid, Lucy, it means we're out of work.

- The bank is closed.

- Please will you look again?

- There must have been a mistake.

- There is no money here for you.


Merci. Merci beaucoup. Au revoir. Bonne journee.

Je ne comprends pas. What are you doing?

Qu'est-ce-que vous faites?

Please don't do that!

Hey! That's my towel!


Julia, what is wrong?



- We have no money. - No money? -

Absolutely none. Not even for the rent.

- How can you have no money?!

- Meaning?

- I only mean you are English.

- Do you think I sell dolls for fun?

No, but it's money for the pocket. Julia?

Many English don't have any money, you know.

Most of them, in fact.

- Uh? - Just because I'm English

doesn't mean... - No problem.

So what's the problem?


I left my job.

There are... two women. No, three women.

- And a journey.

- A journey? How original.

- Something's bad.

- What kind of bad?

Ten US dollars?

- Get lost!

- You must help me to tell you. It is most important.

So maybe you should tell the police.

Oh, no, no, no.

Nothing could possibly be that bad.
