As you know, meray aziz humwatno, I have infarmers in Al-King’s palace. I found out as soon as he agreed to Al-pha’s request for meeting. I hear Al-King’s wazir met him (Al-Brince did not) and greeted him, “O al-abaster skinned one! We accepted your call with al-acrity as soon as you rang the al-arm. What we can do for you, O al-batross around our necks!”
Al-pha presented his appeal for funds. “We al-truistically implore you, O you who have been al-lusive for more than a year …” Before he could finish, Al-King’s wazir glowered at him and exclaimed, “You know when how we became al-ienated! Your al-terpiece thought he could do without us, just because of the Djinns at his command. His ingratitude was al-arming! First, you refused to send al-lotted al-exanders to fight our enemies. Then your al-terpiece began to cosy up to our al-ternatives in the Middle East. Worst of al-l, he agreed to go into their al-liance even before he had al-ighted from OUR plane! That is when we decided: let them find al-ternative al-ignment!
“Your al-terpiece forgot that we have been paying you al-imony for al-l these years! It is to us that you have come begging to al-leviate your frequent bankruptcies. Al-ack and al-as! O al-abaster skinned al-batross! You have truly al-ienated us! We have al-lotted el-ixer of life to you, everything except al-cohol and your al-terpiece turns around and says he is al-ongside our al-ienists! Un-acceptable!”
Al-pha had to ask for forgiveness for his al-terpiece: “O al-mighty wazir! O al-luvial mountain! O high al-titude sickness! O al-ligator of largest swamp! O al-msgiver to al-truists! O al-losaurus tyrranosaurus rex! Do not be al-armed. Do not be al-ienated from us! We are al-ligned to your al-liance. Please forgive ingrate al-terpiece. His ingratitude is Mother of Al-l Evils.”
“Hmmph”, said Al-wazir in half-convinced way. “How many al-ms do you need?” Al-pha muttered, “Al-las, we are bankrupt! Al-most 4 billion US will al-ign our stars …” Al-wazir went to treayury, took out half a billion and said, “Al-ight from high horse! This is al-l we’ve got for you!”
