Daily Prompt: Bookworms

Grab the nearest book. Open it and go to the tenth word. Do a Google Image Search of the word. Write about what the image brings to mind.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us BOOKS.

I grabbed “Chicken” by Jeni Wright and turned to the first page. The tenth word was ‘and’. I did a Google Image Search of the word and a gallery of pornographic images appeared on the screen. On a closer look, I realise that there is a picture of a gay couple kissing.

So, what the HELL do these pictures bring to my mind? For starters, they brought the idea that maybe I should try another book or another page till I get a word that provides decent search results. But then I thought that it was only fair that I follow the prompt’s instructions to a T. So here I am writing about the wonderful experience I had right after morning prayer.

Next, it occurred to me that nudity has become the order of the day so much so that some countries have started banning women from veiling their faces. The British PM, on the contrary was trying to control access to pornographic content on the Internet. Wonder what that’s about, though that would mean that I’d no longer have to be shocked by what awaits you as you Google innocuous words.

Next, I thought of the Saudi princes and their famed love for everything pornographic. Their came to my mind, the image of a prince throwing money on some dancing-girl. SMH.
