The Monk's Monologue
Greetings! I am the monk.
I am a property supervisor and am travelling on a pilrimage with twenty-nine
other people to Canterbury. I am not the usual monk since I do not spend
time studying or praying. I am not involved with those things. I prefer
to do what I love which is to ride my horses and hunt hares. I am my own
person and do not give a plucked hen about the rules of the monastery.
If I followed them, I would not be able to ride or hunt since these activities
are against the rules of how a monk should behave. I love riding and hunting
and will not let the rules or anything else get in the way of these passions
