There was a schoolmaster who took the children’s school fees and got drunk by 11 a.m.  He sat in a tailor’s shop, and the whole shack smelled of alcohol.  There were men wobbling and falling down drunk.  The alcohol could make you blind, or kill you.  Some people, Fred said, went crazy.  They completely lost their minds.

 

 

 

“Alcohol, weed, tablets,” Fred said.  “Some pills.  I don’t know their names. They are red. Some are white. If you go to a location for mad people, it is those pills that have been given. But now, those pills are being sold to other people.”

“So when you want to get drunk like whiskey, you order a pill.  So now you feel like, you are everything.”

“When someone uses a pill, he feels like he can kill anyone. He can do everything.”
