The Legend of Ba Part II

More Sci-Fi:

The two messengers of Ba came to the city of Omasia in the evening, and Tola was sitting in the gate of Omasia. When Tola saw them he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the planet, and said "My lords, turn aside, I beseech you, to your servant's house, and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may wake early and go on your way on second rise." They said "No, we will spend the night in the street." But he urged them strongly, so they turned aside and came to his house. And he made them a feast, and roasted the daeio root, and they ate.

But before they laid down, the males of Omasia, both young and ancient, all to the last, surrounded the house of Tola, and called to him: "Where are the messengers that came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we might meet them. Tola went out to them, closed his home behind him, and said "I beg you fellow Aeonions, do not act so wickedly. I have two young female progeny who have not yet been with a male. Let me bring them out to you, and do to them as you please; only do nothing to these messengers, for they have come to be my guests.

Great stuff eh? Real family values there. Shades of an old George Carlin joke: "Things you never hear: 'Do what you want to the girl, but leave me alone'". Well, its the story of Lot, Mr. Just and Righteous, Genesis: 19: 1-8
