educated reeducation

The big signs
The large words
The eyes see
The mind feels small

Education plays a role
The educated mind read and all
Yet when we confront the messages
We feel small and uneducated

The technical names splash on it
We read it but we can't understand
We realize we have become uneducated
When we fall into a different ball game

We see it in finance and economics
We read it in medical journals and articles
We peruse it in law journals and write ups
We turn the pages of music theory

We can't understand the meaning of scriptures
It goes around and around with interpretations of stars
The astrology and palmistry we are seeing shadows
We can't make the connections from a dot to another

And we say we are educated
In reality we have a small role to play
Together it will make the huge difference
In our lives on Mother Earth

fly the flag

Fly the flag
The headline screams
Let us be a nation
On the day we achieved
Our independence

Though we came a long way
The foundation stone laid
By our forefathers sweat and toiled
The freedom the nation seek and told
The races and religions tolerance

It will be 60 years on the road
Along the way we had our bumpy rides
It is always on one race and religion
The ugly truth isn't helping the growth
As a nation of colorful people and religions

One political party has ruled
The decades on the road
We saw the wastage, the scandals
We read about the corruption and greed
It is time the cycle must change

The nation doesn't need the shame
She wants her wealth to be shared
She wants her progress anchors by all
Irrespective of religious faith and cultures
As a nation all should participate equally

Even the Rulers should play their roles
Unite the people as one nation
Do not sign bills if it isn't right
Return it use the 30 days grace period
Let the people know of the royal disapproval

Let this be the call
The nation needs to change
Let the party fall from grace
Enough has been said and done

the zombie man 6

The neighbor called
The police officers arrived
But the zombie man had left his house
He wasn't around when the police came

The police officers talked to the neighbor
He could be the one who called the police
The police didn't go to the zombie's house
His parents stayed indoor quiet as a mouse

I hope the other neighbors will act on it
Let the police know what has transpired every day
The zombie man never stops yelling
Early in the morning, afternoon and evening

Sometimes after 12 midnight
He will still shout with bad words
His sentences repeat or recycle narratives
The neighbors do share their complaints

I had last year went to the police station
I made my complaint and officer told me to call direct
I did and the police came to investigate
I called twice last year but no action till today

Until this morning a neighbor called
The police officers came talked to the neighbor
Nothing was done never called the parents out
It was just a routine investigation without result

the nation of crooks

The nation of crooks
She can't smile or laugh
She feels the shame
Splashing on her face

The nation of crooks
They walk away free
The agencies playing games
Collect the report put in drawers

The nation of people
Praying hard for the change
Let the nation get up
Spread her wings and fly

But the nation of crooks
They want to rule all the times
They suppress the good
They can't let the episodes appear

The nation of crooks
It's time they are see the light
The gong ringing in their ears
They feel the shiver; they can't hide

the film of our lives

The film of our lives
The archives in our minds

We live with it
We remember the memories

Once we leave
Nothing will be said

The ordinary folks
Just the tombstones to say

The important folks
History will write about it

The crooks who go
The police will have the long episodes

All of us will have
Our report cards to hand over

The day we will meet
In Hades and Paradise

The process will begin
The angels will guide us then

The bad will atone for it
The good will live to enjoy

The film of our lives
This is where it will help

the shape of a life

The shape of a life
It's all in our hands
How we go about doing it?
It will define the times of our lives

Education may help
It isn't to the full
It is still work on the bottom
Rising to the star above

But still many fail
Even with education under their belts
The lives we choose determine our times
Choose the wrong way the wilderness smile

The life on the road
It is always the bumpy rides
With knowledge it may help
But it isn't the defining moment

dap stop the blame game

DAP stop the blame game
It is your own fault to drag it on
Though the party did a reelection in 2013
But it took 4 years for RoS to give its broom

Sad but it is the truth
DAP members who made the back door
Brought the party on the dispute
Though DAP will hold an election under protest

Get it done quickly
Before the sudden dissolving of Parliament
Leaving the party in bad shape
To use its logo or opt it out?

Don't act arrogance
Don't act you can dictate terms
This isn't a time or day
Stay humble the strength it gains

the bad things are crawling

The bad things are crawling
The mad dogs will turn and run
It is now no more secrets
The laws should open the gate

The Scorpene deals years ago
The French Court found the guilty persons
The deal of corruption landed here
One culprit has to reply

The regime has no answer
The mad dogs will hide away
Afraid of the council dog catchers
With guns to shoot them dead

So many bad scandals
Hades will seal his lips
The keyboard warriors will stay quiet
Sometimes shooting like mad dogs

The bad things are crawling
The regime will say the lies
The mad dogs will turn and run
One culprit has to reply

We must know what to do
Let the bad taste its own medicine
Let them sing in the cage system
Once they were now they fall from grace

the dark shadow on the hill

The dark shadow on hill
The waiting time is nigh
The revenge of a death
It isn't going away

She was C4
In pieces fell to the ground
Buried it there
Under rain and sun

The person who gave the order
The walking free every day and night
But the dark shadow isn't going away
The waiting time is nigh

The years had gone
The closure hasn't done
The main player is still free
Putting all stops on his bad

The dark shadow in the backyard
The time is nigh to get the soul
The closure will be arriving soon

When the walls are knocked down

the old man in the house

The old man in the house
Across the street I watch
Once I heard he fell down
He was in hospital for a while

The weeks passed
He still walks with a walking stick
He isn't the same old man
He has grown thin

Everyday he will stand near his gate
Watching the sun; watching people
Watching the vehicles passing by
Sometimes he smiles at the children

His woman will leave him alone
With his mad son for company
As she goes out of the house
Return late in the evening

Today I see him staring at his wall
Looking tired maybe get scolding from his wife
He stands there for a while
Before he walks away

Sometimes I hear him talking to himself
The same familiar sentence he will say
Though I can't understand the words
I guess he feels his time is nigh

His mad son will scold him
Shouting as usual on top of his voice
His woman will nag at him occasionally
He feels he isn't wanted in his house

But the old man still stands
Everyday near his gate watching
He can stand for hours
Until it is too hot to hang around

the common enemy

The common enemy
The parties will merge together
Though others may not see it
They feel it will not work

The bed of different personalities
Of humans what can we expect?
They aren't angels
They are the next best thing

The common enemy
He makes us look bad
In the eyes of the world
We have lost or compass

Now we have a merged entity
Battle to the forefront to march
This is the battle people must win
Otherwise we will sink to the pit!

A power will make a man insane
He will think he is god without sins
He thinks he can fly to the moon
He doesn't need laws to shackle him

One man folly
A nation will crawl
If we don't wake up soon
We will suffer for our stupidity
