bilby commented on the word through his ribs
"Oh, but ease is so easy, when newspapers keep you ignorant of anything transpiring in the real world, when every table groans beneath food and wine, set in the garden under flowering trees. I have become a lotus-eater, sunk in the warm sands of Bondi, gloating over the flaxen hair and elegant bodies of the boys dancing along the waves. Security and well-being do lend a kind of hearty innocence - where else in the world is a generous man defined as one who would give you his arsehole and shit through his ribs."
- 'The New Maharajahs', Germaine Greer in Sunday Times, 1972.
