Ang Pow Weekend

One fine Saturday mornin’ in Miri
Ang Pow-rich lion dancers up early
Cool winds breeze ev’r so nicely
Sights and sounds of Chinese festivity

Waiting for my kids’ brace dentistry
Outside Dr Aziz’s Orthodontology
A dead black cat lay in frigidity
Next to a rollin’ bottle, empty

Female Iban sweepers in bright green
Dust away Miri streets specky clean
Tudung-clad Malay lasses, smiley grin
Chinese Amoys so casual, in denim jean

Everybody still looks festive in spirit
Givin’ themselves shoppin’, eat-out treat
Animal of the year, Golden Tiger is it?
The dead black cat, abandoned on the street.
