Villaneille 2 - Once a Month

Mark down the dates
in your diary.
Serve her chocolates.

She loves Latin
but for those days she's not ready,
mark down the dates.

Oh not tangerines!
When she becomes bossy,
serve her chocolates.

You can barely imagine,
it's like a punch in your belly.
Mark down the dates.

She'll lose her grin.
She might even get dizzy.
Serve her chocolates.

No matter how keen
don't ask for lingerie.
Mark down the dates,
serve her chocolates.

Stress Relief


Sunday, May 17, 2009


A Japanese form of poetry. Consists of three lines and 17 syllables (5-7-5). It changes a bit in English though.

This is my first attempt. I try to interrelate 3 haikus here:

Ruthless glare -
carton crumpled hands
two dollars.

Two dollars
thrown in rusty bowl -
a day's meal.

A day's meal
beside Knox City -
ruthless glare.

People like Us

Who don't read newspaper everyday
Who know neither Nizar nor Sivakumar
Who spend most of the time studying and partying
Who have our lives focused in another country
Are not interested in BN or Pakatan, at all.

But we don't feel comfortable when gatherings aren't allowed
We fear dark nights without candles
We hate being unable to speak
We are disgusted when wearing black has to go into jail
And we have to rethink is it a place to be.

A more responsible citizen I shall be
Who snatch my right to dress in black
I'll vote you out.
We will vote you out.
