‘I ain’t no chicken farmer’

comments     K Temoc     Published     Updated

Torn from my vigilant duties at the border

Guarding against entry of seditious ashes

For Negara and Merdeka I restored order

By arresting those purple-dressed pipi-ess

Wearing wrong coloured shirts was their fault

When blue would have won for them the day

Then their Merdeka march I wouldn't dare halt

And their intention, I won’t have a single say

2009 was 2009, so why still talk about Kugan

And I also resent being labelled a mongrel

Regardless of whatever political affiliation

My groomed hair shows I’m not a scoundrel

I admit I am angry for what I saw on Twitter

But only for failing to give me proper due

By comparing me to a failed chicken farmer

For that mistake I'll make the offender rue

Don’t you dare confuse me with legal fact

Of what's ‘illegal’ and what's ‘unregistered’

Don’t trouble me with obfuscating abstract

I am who I am, I’ve decided they’ve erred

Yesterday Boss wanted us to up our unity

To face any challenge and whatever test

Well, what better test than free nasi curry

So stop whining, whinging and your protest

Look at those who praised my patriotic action

They of blue ‘pedigree’, ‘proper’ upbringing

Saying my mini Ops Lalang has justification

From them I hear only encouraging singing

I shall help leave behind a peaceful Malaysia

Of prosperity where RM6 billion is nothing

Once my duty’s done, for jolly good measure

I’ll be back at the border so no ash sneaks in

Keep Malaysiakini independent!

Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.

Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.

Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.

Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
