The Charge of the Rights Brigade

By Allan CF Goh

To the south, to the south,
To Johor, they engage.
Into BN’s strong state,
Let them not fear and fade.
Forward, the Rights Brigade!
Bring change for the better.
Choose light over darkness,
Make Malaysia brighter.
Forward, the Rights Brigade!
For a cause blessed and right.
This is not a blunder.
This is for “People’s Might”.
Theirs is to reason why;
Theirs not to let reasons die.
Let Johor know the truth.
Don’t let folks live a lie.

Desperation and fear,
And hostility reign.
Vulgar threats may be hurled,
Like the black falling rain,
May volley and thunder,
But will not shake their will.
Boldly they must campaign,
Thro’ all threats and all ill.

Lay bare the corruptions,
Let the truth rant the air.
Expose exploitations.
Demand for what is fair.
Ban discriminations,
And unfair deprivations.
Fight with full conviction
For a better Nation.

Forward the Rights Brigade!
Build a much better State,
With people united,
And racism off the slate.
All equal and sharing,
The dream of one destiny,
Of a new Malaysia,
With perfect harmony.

Forward the Rights Bridget!
Set out for the good fight.
Armoured with righteousness,
Send the dark force to flight.
Bring home that victory.
Folks will honour their name.
The nation salutes them.
Let Johor be their fame.

    Inspired by ….”Charge of the Light Brigade…road the 600″ …the author composed an excellent poem..with the twists.
    People Power is the Commander and PR politicians are the soldiers charging forward.
    Next come…”Onward Christian soldiers…marching as to war”…like the movie..”Agony & Estasy”..starring Rex Harrison & Charlton Heston.

    No number of heros can overcome a people that don’t want to help themselves. Najib is pouring on the UMNO/BN hypocrisy formula in unprecedented thickness – subsidized housing, BR1M annually, chinese schools, money for traffic and flood, 1,000 taxi license and we have not even started official period of campaigning!

    The one to fear is not the thick baloney we can see, its the vicious stealing of citizen’s right and free mind that is to be feared..
