The Haven Of Children - Poem by a Malaysian Writer
All was fair play and all was well,
Where tidings of joy and mirth did swell,
In Mac D's house.
Up to the slide and down to the floor they fell,
Through their eyes and through their smiles,
They enjoyed themselves.
Till one hand took the boy away,
And another told the girl not to play,
Separately they went.
In the corner the boy stayed,
Out the house the girl did lay,
How they longed to play.
They all asked "why I have to leave that place? ",
The hand said "vanilla and chocolate ice cream do not taste the same",
They ate theirs.
Yet they asked the same question again,
The hand said "for one is Ali and one is Siu Mei",
It all started just from a fair play.
