called his poetry book.

Does any one have

any questions for me?

I asked you last time to read

Edgar Alan Poe's

story "The Black Cat".

It's a very short story.

Has anyone read it?

Please raise a hand.

You know what,

the hell with you!

- Hello

- Hello.

- Good afternoon.

- Good afternoon.

Greetings comrades!

Greetings, greetings!

Come on through, please do.

How are you, Tamik?

Not so bad, brother,

not so bad. And you?


Don't, don't, I'm cold.

- Would you like your tea stronger?

- No, no, thanks, it's fine.

- You know what surprises me, Murik?

- What surprises you?

You have everything here,

but you don't have a clock.

He's as good as a clock himself.

An hour glass.

How's that?

The sands of time are

running out from him.

No, I just get along perfectly

well without a clock.

Aren't you late for work?

No, the clock is inside.

Everyone has a clock inside.

They forgot to wind mine up.

No, it's just that sometimes it runs

fast and sometimes it runs slow.

And sometimes it sticks

in one place.

Well, I want to live in harmony

with time. You see?

But people these days,

the people who populate the earth,

they've all gone mad,

they're all chasing time,

they want to catch it up,

they want to earn more...

It's chaos!

Universal chaos is beginning!


Stop hurrying everywhere,

bring time to order!

Imagine they just turned

all the clocks off?

You're laughing again.

Would you like some more tea?

There's only one way

to stop this madness.

How's that?

The whole world must pray to God

that people will stop

their obscenity.

Profound, eh?

I'll tell you about obscenity.

We went fishing one time.

Everyone ran about

trying to snap up the best spots.

And I went off

with the lake warden.

We cut up some thin strips of meat
