A Gentleman Always Has A Clean Handkerchief On His Person: Where Is Your Chivalry? - by A.B.King



   How do you do? All is well, I trust?
   I'm honored you've decided to grace my humble article with a few minutes of your time. What you are about to learn would bless you for a lifetime.
   A Gentleman must always carry a clean handkerchief.
   I personally carry a small blue or plain white handkerchief - sized towel (for lack of a better way to describe it), in the outer right hand side pocket of my suit everywhere I go,
   I find it more effective than a handkerchief   in my case. I can't in good conscience say that I sweat a lot. However, I have found myself with a damp handkerchief on extremely busy and sunny days; and that would hardly do to keep my face dry.
   I find it's better to be prepared than to find oneself in an undesirable situation, so I personally don't use a handkerchief. I use my beautiful little handkerchief - sized towel.
   And No! It's not conspicuous. You won't notice it's not a handkerchief unless you touch it. Only then you'll notice it's way too thick and the way it feels reminds you of a towel.
   In any case, for everybody else who finds that a handkerchief would do the job for them, then I recommend that they use a real handkerchief.
   Apart from always carrying a handkerchief for the obvious purpose, there is another obvious purpose that is only obvious to every gentleman: A Gentleman Should Have A Clean Handkerchief To Offer To A Lady Should She Need One Even Though She May Have Her Own But It's Not In Plain Sight.
   If a Gentleman is around a Lady that begins to cry, sneeze, vomit, ... etc, a Gentleman must give up his handkerchief or perhaps even sacrifice it forever.
   It is what we must do. It is the way of a Gentleman.
   It is the way of a King.
   Now, if she refuses to accept it, then you must withdraw but indicate either by actions or in words that you are willing and ready to offer assistance in any other way should she allow it.
   I'm sure I also don't need to tell you that you cannot offer a Lady an already used handkerchief. The handkerchief must be clean and dry. The handkerchief must be worthy of the Lady's use. If your handkerchief at that time has already been used by you, then just stick to offering her assistance in any other way possible if allowed.
   Remember Alfredonian Etiquette is not to imprison self expression or individuality but to prevent the destruction of civilization by bringing order to self expression.

Our Boys In Blue - a poem by Alfred

Through Cold or Heat, Through Strength or Pain/
They Carry our Troubles, All Night, All Day/
They Risk their Future, To Keep us Safe/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police, No one would be Safe/
Bodies would paint the Street like Syria Today/
After the West played Chess and won the Game/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police in America, today/
Your Head and Your Body could be in different States/
One Part in Alabama, The Other part Up-State/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
We owe our Lives to Our Boys In Blue/
They carry the weight of the Red, White, and Blue/
And make it a Nation all Nations come to/
Have you said Thanks, To a Cop today?/

The Body Inside Your Body Is Not Your Body - a poem by Alfred

They say, every woman has the Right to do what she likes with her body/
But the Body inside your Body is not your body/
A baby is not the Mother, And the Mother is not the baby/
A Bentley is not the Driver, And the Driver is not the Bentley/
Your baby is not you, It's just Parked in your Body/
But if your Baby is your body, Why Abort your own body/
Let's not rename Murder, in other to commit Murder/
Let's not rename Genocide, and call it Parental Planning/
Or Planned Parenthood or Family Planning/
What kind of Parental Plan suggests killing the family?/
How can you be Pro-Choice by robbing the baby's choice?/
The decision to Live or Die belongs to the Life involved/
How dare you choose Death without hearing the Baby's voice/
The Pro-Choice movement is Anti-Choice/

Rather Than Hate The Rich, Become Rich - a poem by Alfred

Crucify the Rich, Burn them at the Stake/
Punish them for succeeding, where the rest of us has failed/
Their Remote controls the State like the TV channels they made/
Only 1 per cent are safe, 99 per cent are slaves/
Occupy the 1 per cent, Hello to Project Eliminate/
We don't need rich people in the world, walk 'em to their grave/
Like Marie Antoinette, and then We Would Eat Cake/
All Rich People are Evil, Greedy, and Really Vain/
Away with Rich people, Let us dig their graves/
They plan to dig ours, I can see it in their ways/
Who needs the Rich to build Banks, Skyscrapers, and Planes/
Who needs the Rich to build Rockets to take us to Outer Space/
Wealth can't create more jobs than poverty makes/
Poverty is what this country needs, take wealth away/
Destroy the Rich to make the world a better place/
I hate Rich people, even though I work all day/
I'm sure it's no so I could be Rich some day/
And if I get Rich I would give it all away/
Because I hate Riches, I'…
