First Encounter - Faridah Merican - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

faridah merican
her home is where
the theatre is

never liking what some
politicians do to
nation and her brood (people of Malaysia)

premier love
the english language
then theatre that lets it sparkle

every cell comes alive
in the world of dance
and performances

does not want malaysians
to be shortchanged
by crafty politicians

first met at her new theatre in Sentul in mid 2000.
