50 Years Conversing As An Immigrant

by Elizabeth

You don't look English

Where are you from?

No, where are you really from?

Oh my god are you a Muslim?

Why aren't you a Muslim?

Isn't everyone there a Muslim?

Don't you have to be a Muslim there?

Weren't you brought up to be Muslim? 

Don't you fast for Ramadan?

Then what are you?

 

 

You don't look English

Where are you from?

No, where are you really from?

But you speak English?

Have you had FGM?

How awful you had to leave your country like that

But I thought ...

You mean you didn't ...?

But still, it's awful

Your life is awful.

 

You don't look English

Where are you from?

No, where are you really from?

You're so exotic!

Do you do belly dancing?

Does your dad wear a turban?

Do you have a magic carpet?

What about a genie bottle?

Do you like it here?

I wish I was interesting like you.
