Countrymen Ballad


mengadu nasib di negeri sendiri
tak punya uang jadi masalah
punya uang jadi omongan
jadi kuli atau tukang pulung
yang penting kenyang dan halal
terlilit utang sudah biasa
ketiban malang masih untung juga
sungguh enak di negeri sendiri
tidur nyenyak di mana saja
asal pandai cari situasi
biar kata orang rusuh
yang penting hidup dan bahagia
diinjak orang sudah biasa
ketimpuk batu selamat juga
hari ini kita berjaya
esok serahkan pada-Nya

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
