My Song / 我的歌

7) Chrysanthemum Song / 菊花之歌

Posted on Updated on

Is just another day

People rolling on the street

Wheels chasing each other

This is the moment we meet

You are in a cart along the city

When I look into your eyes

Let me have a chance to call out your name

Miss Chrysanthemum

You are a whispering angel

Calling my name in the dust

You are a true angel

And I am a true follower

By your side

I rather be a charming face


Is just another day

People walking on the grass

Wind chasing each other

This is the time we greet

You are the guardian of the graveyard

When I look into your eyes

Let me have a chance to call out your name

Miss Chrysanthemum

You are a humming angel

Calling my name in the garden

You are a true singer

I am a true prayer

By your side

But I rather be a faithful hand

I live in Texas my homeland, a desert an untouched ground

I love the sun being my clothes

And I love the sweet, warm breezy blows

With a grouchy cuckoo on my head

No autumn leaves or winter snow

No splashing stream or falling rain

Just an empty Paradise on my own,

With the rocks and stones.

I like to dance in the falling night,

With the cowboys dancing around

That is my homeland, a desert an untouched ground


I live in Singapore IKEA my homeland, a concrete desert ground

I love the air-conditioner being my jacket all year round

And I love the halogen light giving me a good shine

With a grocery shopper passer-by

No autumn leaves or winter snow

No splashing stream or falling rain

Just a perfect Paradise within my reign

With my color and little sands deco

I like to sing in my own shadow

With the shopper’s cajoling around,

This is Singapore IKEA my homeland, a concrete desert ground.

How many forms do we have to fill before we call it a day?

Birthday Form, Jab Form and the X-ray Form

Your Childcare Form, your Kindergarten Form and don’t forget your primary school Enrolment Form

Your Secondary School Form, Pre-U Form and University Form

And what about the National Service Form

When you graduate, you got to fill your Interview Form

If you lucky it lasts you forever,

And if you are not so lucky

You got to fill it over and over

One form to another, one form to another

When you got your first pay

You will get your Credit Card and Insurance form

Later part, follow by your Apartment Application Form

And, your Loan Form is on the way

One form to another, one form to another

CPF Form, Medisave Form and your Broadband Subscription Form

What happen if you got a car?

There are many forms to go

And you go for many forms

When your kid comes

Another set of forms begin to go

Until you are six feet down under

Your forms will be filled up by others

One form to another, one form to another

When I push the trolley to collect reuse items

I have to bend myself down.

As the sun is so heavy on me

Hey, call me a Karang Guni

I am A Karang Guni

I work for a bowl of rice with a price

I work from sunset to sunrise


When I stand behind the counter

I have to keep up and look neat

As everyone’s eyes are on me

Hey, call me a sales girl or a counter girl

I am a sales girl or a counter girl

I work for a bowl of rice with a price

I work from day to night


When I go from seats to seats

I clean up tables and seats

As I am pay to clear dirty seats and tables

Hey, call me a cleaner

I am a cleaner

I work for a bowl of rice for a price

I work from day to day, holiday to holiday


When I reach your house steps

I have rubbish to collect

As the garbage is unpleasant to environment

Hey, call me a refuse collector

I am a refuse collector

I work for a bowl of rice with a price

I work from home to home, moment to moment

I like the sea but I don’t know how to swim

I like to fly but it is too costly

I like freedom but I have no wings

I like to cycle but I prefer a 4 wheeler

I like to write ghost story but I don’t like to see ghost

I like to travel but not too far

I like to write prose but poem is still my close

297/365: ghost story

I like tall tree but I also like tiny grass

I like colorful flower but I also like plain green leaf

I like rocks so solid but I also like fine sand screed

I like nature but I also like nature in the city

I like joke but I also like black joke

I like stinking river but I also like pure land

I have one dream but it breaks down to too many

I am creative but am still in the box

I am humorous but with no senses

I am bonny but I got dignity

I look young but my heart is even younger

I may be impatient but I have mindful endurance

I may be slow but I know to take short cut

I may be fast but I take the long way

I may be happy but I am tearing

I may be sad but I am laughing

2) One sentence a day

Posted on Updated on

One sentence a day  

A new law has been introduced, and it restricts everyone to only speaking one sentence a day.

The rising level of noise pollution in the country has brought about this, in addition to the people’s habit of spending so much time on idle chitchat that their ability to engage in deep and meaningful contemplation of serious issues, or to express themselves fully by writing has been badly affected.

One solution to this is to encourage the citizens to write and reflect more on different issues.

Another solution could be, of course to only allow each person to speak just one sentence a day.

If such a law is indeed established, how will the world become, as a result? Will the result of such a law be that our world becomes more peaceful, with the level of noise pollution lowered greatly and our ears, having been assaulted by so much noise for so long, finally are able to enjoy peaceful silence?

Or will the result just be the opposite?

Among those most affected by such law would undoubtedly be people who truly enjoy talking and engaging in conversations, and also those who depend on their gift of the gab for a living. However, the law is the law, after all, and life has to go on.

If such a law is introduced, one will still be able to hear sounds when the television set is turn on. Other than music, different voices will be heard, one sentence at a time. And because every person is restricted to only one sentence a day, the person shown on TV programmed has to change every sentence in the script, with the character disappearing and appearing over and over again.

And if there happens to be a severe lack of people available, even the cleaners working at the TV station could be asked to make appearance on TV.

With a law like that, cities will become more peaceful, as everyone will be writing on a slips of paper in an effort to communicate with each other.

When shopping, customers will have to write their queries down on a piece of paper to show the shopkeeper, who in turn will be required to have a stack of paper nearby to answer questions.

If this happens, one will then see many people on the street carrying and showing each other numerous pieces of paper.

“A plate of chicken rice, please!” One slip would say.

“How much is that?” Another would ask.

Countless pieces of paper would be found everywhere.

But let’s not forget the art of sign language. In a world where everybody is only allowed to speak one sentence a day, mute people will be no longer be considered as disadvantaged. Instead, they will be seen as the leaders of the new age, and one would then see signboards in Braille everywhere, and sign language will become the popular form of communication everywhere, with even illegal vendors on the streets having to introduce themselves with those slips.

And of course, things would improve greatly for those with speech disabilities! For those who shutter, life would become easier!

People who can develop their language skills are also at an advantage! They can take advantage of the one-sentence limit to try and see if they can extend that sentence for as long as possible. Words like although, hence, however, even, because, thus, lastly, and others will all be used more often as people try to make maximum use of that one sentence allowed to them. However, they will need to practice saying such long sentences with just one breath.

There will be people who suffer because of this law too, such as couples in love who cannot whisper sweet nothings to each other as much as they like.

In the long run, the amount of robberies committed will also increase! Under the new law, we will not hear “Help! Thief! Thief!” yelled by an unfortunate victim anymore. Instead, we will see a group of people chasing the thief, holding a placard over their heads that has “Help! Thief!” written on it.

What a world that will be! The people unsatisfied and unhappy, they begins a silent protest in the streets, which will become so crowded that even water will not be able to flow down the streets! Everyone will be holding large signs above their heads, signs that scream, “We want to talk! ”, “We want to express our view! ”, we’d rather die than speak one sentence a day!”

This silent protest will, of course, eventually come to the government’s attention.

And because the government officials are also restricted to speak one sentence each day, slips of paper will also be passed around fervently at government meetings. In the end, because of this unbearable situation and its disastrous consequences, the “One sentence a day.” Will have to be abolished!

Imagine the joy that will spread all over the country at the cancellation of the “One sentence a day” law. You will be able to both see and hear everybody’s joy, on his faces and in their voices. They will be so happy that they will ask after each other, and after each other’s family members!

No one will mourn the passing of the “One sentence a day” law.

That day will deserve a record of its own in the Guinness Book of World Records, as “The day when the Happiness Levels of Everyone was at an all-time high! ”
