the batang kali tragedy


The Batang Kali tragedy

On the landslide killing many*

The last victim was found yesterday

The sadness registered on our faces

They were too young to go

Leaving this world in the tragedy

In the late morning of the night

The roaring mud buried them alive!

Our fate we can't determine

We can think or dream about it

The fortune tellers will say

How true wait for the day

The hill side projects must stop

There is no reason to upset Nature

The punishment will be lost of lives

Batang Kali and Highland Towers recorded

The lessons must be learned

The government and civil servants tow the line

Nature will not keep quiet of our transgression

Once it strikes lives will be lost

*31 died
