The Haze Is Back - Poem by Loke Kok yee
The haze is back! The haze is back! The headlines screamed each day,
As a neighbouring country annually clear and burn their jungle away.
Enough is enough! Enough is enough! Demonstrators do loudly declare,
Our health has deteriorated, business is appalling and no more can we bear.
Firm action will be taken! Firm action will be taken! Same crap yet again,
Dumb politicians making lots of empty pledges that are hardly worth a yen.
But then are these the only issues to address?
What about the forest bulldozed to the ground,
Existing long before Adam and Eve was around.
And the flora and fauna which used to be abound,
The burning had ensured they never again be found.
Wildlife is receding and nature's under duress.
