All Heads Shook No


And Terrance was a young man!

He was still very young

on his first business trip overseas.

To speak in India.

What a lucky young man,

and each one is probably a Hindu.


The lectern was set,

the film slides began,

Terrance was well on his way.


A few minutes in

he asked for questions,

and all heads shook to a ‘No.’


No questions.


Well, do you all understand?


And all head again shook to a ‘No.’


Oh boy!

I’ll start once again

from the beginning

and take it real slow,

so here we go again.


When finished

Terrance asked again for questions.

No questions came from a man.


Does everyone understand?

All head shook to a ‘No.’


Oh man!

I’m confused.

What could be wrong?

This is really simple stuff.

Okay, we’ll try again,

this time, much slower.


Then one man stood

Terrance, Terrance,

In India, we shake our heads ‘Yes.’
