Ode to toppled leaders of Arabic countries… :(

23 02 2011

Glee of freedom or phobia of misery?

Bright afternoon, clear skies
Blue sea, strong sun’s rays
Monkeys roam free, a flock of birds
National pride — independent sovereignty.

People’s anger, a tyrant leader?
Decades of rule, subjects’ surrender
Harshest of sufferings, not to render
Chaos sets in, uprising greatly peaks.

Contrasting situations — between nations
Rich men, poor men — dangerous gaps
A ticking time-bomb, suddenly explodes
A country’s head, immediately rolls?

Peace. Love. Kindness

Merdeka ceria atau fobia derita?

Petang nan cerah, awan terang
Laut nan biru, mentari benderang
Ambuk bebas, burung terbang
Kebanggaan negara — daulat merdeka.

Manusia marah, pemimpin zalim?
Berdekad memerintah, rakyat takzim
Jerih susah payah, sepatut tak lazim
Puhar huru hara, bangkit membara.

Keadaan berbeda — antara negara
Miskin dan kaya — jurang merbahaya
Bom masa berdetik, meledak tiba-tiba
Apa bisa ketua negara, digulingkan segera?

Keris Warisan
