Malaysian election poem - Chameleon


Chameleon
a class war or a
race war?

toad
i cannot see the
ugly difference

frogs
i jump into the fray
anyway

snake
slithers through
as if nothing
is in the way

mouse
i will steal
little by little

doggy
i'll bark till
the sun comes down

camel
i will carry whatever
across continent
through harshest terrain
use me when
you can
