Land of scandalous possibilities

– Martin Jalleh

Today, we celebrate our land of (a)

Forced patriotism
Façade of a multi-racial-religious nation
Foisted respect for the authorities
Failing and fading social fabric
Fabricating and spinning media
Fictitious and twisted history
Fogged education policy
Flagging international image
Fear and favour causing high brain drain

After half a century we can only boast of (a)

Frail economy and imminent bankruptcy
Farcical changes and reforms
Fantasised progress figures
Flops, foul-ups and flip-flops
Flawed development policies
Fanciful empty acronyms
Foolish public relations
Flagrant greed and corruption
Fraudulent claims and wastage

50 years have passed and we are left with (a)

Floundering institutions
Fools, “frogs” and foul-mouthed leaders
Fanatics and bigots who fan the flames
Felons, fixers and framers of gutter politics
Fatuous, asinine and arrogant Ministers
Forked-tongued and feckless powers that be
“Foster states” of Sabah and Sarawak!
Fractured nation of fragile peace
Fettered freedom!

Happy Malaysia Day, anyway!

    But, but, we have style.

    We do everything with gaya (style).

    Never mind if we are pokai as long as we have ‘style’.

    Martin Jalleh,

    UMNO/BN would probably said that at least nothing was “F^(ked up” :)

    Thanks for sharing!

    Sadly, what you say is true.
