Quickie-Corruption - Poem by Loke Kok yee

Corruption is all about scratching backs
I scratch your back you scratch my back
More than two we’ll scratch each others back
When all is done we will split the cheque

    I was deep in thought about the evils of corruption as I read your poem Loke. And then when I absorbed the picture I was struck by the hellish appearance of the primates...a perfect picture for this subject.10+ (Report) Reply

    Thank you Simone, corruption is rife in this part of the world; easy for me to relate.

    well i truly like Melvina as a poet and PH friend...BUT...
    her calling this poem a Limerick must surely end!

    LKY, do YOU really work with those big apes in the photo! i think.........correction: I KNOW........ i'd clean under my fingernails after scratching THEIR backs! of course i would first suck all the ticks and fleas and other creatures off my fingertips. and swallow them.

    This Limerick is a clear depiction of the truth that is prevalent in many countries and the little folks don't matter..... (Report) Reply

    You have given a metaphoric picture of corruption! It has become a widespread vicious act involving many! United they stand, united they thrive! (Report) Reply
