Twenty ways to die

by Iza Deleanu

My name is now Charlie and I am a refugee from Eastern Europe. I left my country before the communism curtain went down. Most of the time I travelled illegally and under the imminent scare that I will be caught and brought back. After 20 days of running, hiding and hitching odds rides I finally reached, what at that time was western Germany. Between you and me, Germany was the Eldorado for anyone that was running from a communist country.

I was immediately caught up by the Polizei. They put me in quarantine. Man, I am not a carrier of anything, maybe just of hunger. Why are you keeping me closed in this room? I didn’t risk my life for this! If you don’t want me here, let me go!

Sir, this is for your safety! Sit there and shut up!

One fat polizei ask me how I escaped the regime.

I said: I got a swim for it! I cross the Danube River and landed in Hungary and from there I just run… travel by night, hide during the day.

Aha, that explains it! We are sorry to inform you, but you caught pneumonia and is too late for any treatment….
Man, what a stupid way to die in the West! I will enter in history as the idiot that escape communism but was caught up by… pneumonia!
