the poem which best describe malaysia for now...

fwded email...

Oh man, I love this country,
I called it the land of political absurdity,
Full of ludicrousness amid stupidity,
First in the pipeline is Mr. Badawi,
The country's fifth Perdana Menteri,
Hailed from notable ulama's family,
In that spirit he created a new Islam Hadhari,
The so-called modern Islam resembling Turkey,
Some touted it as Islam Ada Hari,
When the original Islam turned awry.

He loves to travel in style like big celebrity
Making grand entrance in any opportunity,
So he insisted a private jet paid by Treasury,
He got it despite hullabaloo by bloggers community,
He said the government didn't purchase it out rightly,
The government is leasing it from SPM, a GLC,
For him, this is a good strategy,
By doing that he thinks he can save money,
Oh yeah, he thinks people believe his story.

Perth seems to be his favourite city,
Last December he opened Nasi Kandar Puteri,
And then went on sailing trip with Todt of Ferrari,
Back home worst flood hit Johor Kota Tinggi,
17 died and 90,000 evacuated in that tragedy,
But yet, the jet setting PM was outside the country,
He might use remote control key.

Badawi has son-in-law by the name of Khairy,
He married Badawi's daughter Nori,
Recently both blessed with the baby,
That has longest name in the country,
I can only remember the last name, Khairy,
This young chap is Pemuda Umno deputy,
Claimed to have "protection" from Mr. Badawi,
Has a big wish to be PM by age of forty,
So he is gathering support from Putera and Puteri,
At the same time accumulated wealth aggressively,
Through ECM Libra and some crony,
Media was at his helm through NST,
Now he has potent tools – money, media and machinery,
And his father-in-law alias Perdana Menteri.

Meanwhile Hisham is putting up a new strategy,
His keris wielding attracts flak of Malay supremacy,
It backfires especially to Chinese community,
His reasoning draws conclusion that he is puny,
Najib is not convince Hisham to be his deputy,
Najib may consider a big mouth Nazri,
Provided that Rosmah is okay to work with Nazri,
You know why lah, Najib takut bini.

We don't have to elaborate the story,
You have to come here to enjoy the absurdity,
We have quite a few funny ministers and MP,
Such as hilarious Work Minister Mr. Samy,
Before Hindraf he represents Indian community,
The longest serving minister that heads MIC,
In press conference he got agitated quite easily,
When Umno conference was held on Deepavali,
He said no "open house" as sign of hostility,
He twisted the decision maybe after talking to Indrani,
This MIC leaders share similar trait and personality,
The latest one was Cameron Highland MP Mr. Devamani,
He has broken ranks with fellow BN MP,
When he accused government not doing enough for Indian community,
After meeting with BN Whip, he regretted and say sorry.

Let me continue my story,
Well, you probably have heard it already,
About the biggest anti-government rally,
Not exactly same scale as 98 Reformasi,
On Nov 10 more than 40,000 flooded the city,
To protest unfair election practice against EC,
Dirty ruling party tactics are legendary,
Short-notice on Election Day is customary,
Just a day before Pak Lah was basking in glory,
In annual affair of UMNO general assembly,
Full of hypocrisy and puji-memuji,
Pak Lah shouted it loud "don't challenge me",
Despite threats and warning from Pak Lah and Khairy,
People are defiant and take no heed from Badawi,
They chanted God is Great, Daulat Tuanku and Reformasi,
November is a month of illegal assembly,
School holidays thus parents are quite free.

The rally was given wide publicity,
The rally was headlined in Al Jazeera and BBC,
Foreign media questioned our brand of democracy,
Water cannon and tear gas were fired indiscriminately,
Umno leaders are in denial state naturally,
Such as Zam who head the Info Ministry,
Zam was trembling uncharacteristically,
In an interview that becoming laughing stock in the country,
Scrambling for words and chew out frantically,
He can't censor it as we are in digital technology,
You can just Google or YouTube easily.

Well that is one example of political absurdity,
What do you expect from half past six menteri,
Some are in complete ignorance and dreary,
Some will resort to unthinkable publicity,
Giving broom as reward never in history,
Some will slaughter cows in parliament for kenduri,
To celebrate the matrimony of our own Sleeping Beauty,
Another stupid joke by backbencher MPs.

You can't find this in your country,
A journalist like Michael Backman will agree,
So many things to write for your Daily,
No wonder he keeps coming here for juicy story,
Malay tabloids prefer to write about ghost and celebrity,
That's saleable among ordinary,
Maybe they got sick of constant spat by political party,
They prefer to idolise people like Siti or Mawi,
Do you think they care who is their MP?.
