Shit Bird Westerner

Seal of Bangkok.Image via Wikipedia
for Wikipedia

there are these
birdshit Westerners
barefoot, dread-locked
smoking hashish
and doing nothing
for months at a time
littering Khao San Road
in Bangkok.

the Thais call them
farang kii nok
farang means foreigner
kii means shit
nok means bird
I want to be a shit bird, too.

Check out the background information that inspired this poem.

  1. Thailand have lots of nice beaches and historical places. But its sad that tourist just wanna go there not because they want to see these places but for some not so good reason.
