19) Song of Abduction

Posted on Updated on


English: Gold bars created by Agnico-Eagle

I am lack of air

You are a billionaire

I got no one to care

You got plenty things to spare

You are rare

You must be in the sky somewhere

So, I lock you up

Asking for anything you can bear

First, I share with you my nightmare

Secondly, you share with me how to become a billionaire

I believe this is fair

UAC workers sparks

I am lack of air

You are not that bad

I got no one to care

At least, you have something to spare

You are well aware

You must be working for somebody somewhere

So, I lock you up

Asking you for any peanut can be shared

First, I share with you my nightmare

Secondly, you tell me what rate is fair and square

I believe this is fair

This post was inspired by a news article regarding kidnappers are now diverting their targets.  They are now on lookouts for ordinary people for ransom, as they believe ordinary people are easier targets to them, as they have no security guards protecting them.  Besides, the lower ransom they demanded is much easier to be fulfilled than the huge payoffs.  This is real crime case happening in a country somewhere.

We love you more than we can say

My dearest little monkey

You should not complain anymore

Just as you are a clown in the forest

And this is for your own good

You can expand your talent in the circus roundabout

To win a big applause

All these are for your own sake

As we shall always love you

That is what they rake

We love you more than we can say

My dearest little rabbit

You shouldn’t be squeaking anymore

As you are a timid guy living in the cave

And this is for your own good

You can expose your outfit to earn profit

All these are for your own sake

As we shall always love you

That is what they rake

We love you more than we can say

My dearest giant Garoupa

You shouldn’t be hiding underneath the ocean rock anymore

As you are one of the legend of the ocean kingdom

And this is for your own good

You become the celebrity in the chandelier hall

All these are for your own sake

As we shall always be your aficionado

That is what they rake

We love you more than we can say

My dearest little doggy

You shouldn’t be growing anymore

As you are just a little pet on the floor

And this is for your own good

You can expand your other side of talent

To win a big applause in the cold winter ending up on a dinning table

All these are for your own sake

As we shall always love you from our bottom of our stomach

That is what they rake

榕树

在东部一带有一块空地,那里有一棵很老很老的榕树,几十年树立在那儿,它附近的店屋都被政府拆除了十几年,就只有它独自在那儿无人过问。我机缘巧合遇上一位住在那一带的老街坊,他娓娓道来。。。。。。

几十年前那儿一带是做五金和卖火碳的店,其中的一家火碳店老板姓李,从中国南来白手起家,生意虽然做得不是很大,但养家糊口还算过的去。唯一给他遗憾的是足下全是五千金,要知道,在那个时代封建思想根深蒂固,没有儿子传宗接代是件非常不体面的事情。李老板一直为此事耿耿于怀,表面上对这五千金疼爱倍加,但暗地里却不知如何去面对列祖列宗。

一年的清明节,举家去远处的山坟祭拜祖先。当他们一家大小除草扫坟祭拜到最后焚烧金纸,已经是傍晚5点钟。就在这时候,李老板不其然地望见远处在烟雾朦胧间有一棵巨大的树,他再定眼一看才确定那是一棵榕树。

榕树树身高大健硕,枝叶青绿且茂盛,令李老板看了非常想去触摸它。但由于天快要暗下来,如果再不走可能在回家的路上会迷失方向。于是,李老板只好站在远处心里头默默的祈祷,因为他认为今生与榕树见面毕竟是一种缘分,因此他默默地祷念希望榕树赐给他一个儿子,任何代价他都愿意付出。。。。。

可悲的是,几个月后李老板由于工作操劳过度结果一卧不起。一家大小的生计成了问题。不止如此,李老板的病似乎一天比一天的重,李太太逼于无奈只好出去找工作来维持生计。

几个月后的一个晚上,明月高挂窗外,李老板已病入膏肓,他也意识到生命已到了尽头。那一刻,迷迷糊糊间他透过窗口,依稀看见庭院里月光下,有个巨大的树影在晃动,树影似乎在呼唤“爸爸,爸爸”,声音忽远忽近飘浮不定,李老板听到这把小男孩的声音,听着听着就这样嘴带微笑,眼角泪湿地与世长辞了。。。。。

李老板过世后,李太太毅然扛起一家的重担,一个人做三份工来维持这个家庭。幸亏家里的五千金也非常的懂事,小小年纪就会帮起妈妈洗衣服,把洗好的衣服晾在庭院里。说得也奇怪,自从他们的父亲过世以后,庭院里的一片草地上竟然长出一棵小树,而这棵小树据一名有知识的邻居说那是一棵榕树。

日子就这样一天一天的过去,一家大小就围着榕树生活。这榕树也一天天的长大,没过多久就变成一棵巨大的树。这树的影响力非常的奇妙,不止李家围绕着它生活,就连左邻右舍的邻居也喜欢到树下遮阴乘凉,或拔豆芽什么的。。。。。久而久之,这树下就成为他们这一带居民欢聚同乐的地方。举凡大日子农历新年或中秋节,大家都会围着榕树庆祝一番。奇怪的是,榕树也似乎感应到他们的欢乐,在风中不断摇摆自己的身体与他们欢乐。

这样平静的日子维持了一段时间,不久李太太也过世了。李家的屋子在城市规划下不得不搬迁,李家的五千金搬离了老屋子,搬进了政府配给的政府组屋。左邻右舍也渐渐搬离,最后剩下这棵榕树孤独地在庭院里。

这么多年后人事迁移,这棵榕树还依然树立在那儿,周遭的屋子都已经被拆除了。大片的空地就只有一棵榕树,令人十分不解?有的人猜测说国家公园局为了保护这棵五十年老榕树而保留起来。也有的说,政府人员曾经尝试迁移这棵榕树,但那些负责人员都落得没一个好下场。总之,众说纷纭,这棵榕树就一直在那儿。听说,农历七月在那儿空地摆起的歌台,有人远远看到有个影子在榕树下徘徊。。。。。

我也对老街坊的话持着半信半疑的态度,因为故事里有些漏洞。但它毕竟是故事,而且是幽怨凄美的故事。。。。。

Is hardly to see this kind of simple, kampong style production in Singapore. They don’t wear expensive costumes, they don’t put on a drama mask.
It just like that !
A simple script, a simple production makes your heart warm!

在新加坡再也难找到这类既纯朴又富有甘榜味道的制作了.他们不穿名贵的服装,不戴舞台面具.

就这么简单!

一个简单的剧本,一个简单的制作就令人感觉那么温馨!

1) 一天一句话

Posted on Updated on


一天一句话

有关当局最近颁布一条禁令,“每人一天只说一句话。”

原因是由于国内噪音污染指数与日剧增,在加上人们把大部
分的时间花在嘴巴上而导致思考与书写能力贫乏。唯一的方法就是鼓励人民多想多写。

“每人一天只说一句话。”

假如一个人一天内只能讲一句话,这个世界会变成什么样子呢?会不会因此而天下太平,噪音减少,耳根也清静?还是恰恰相反呢?

首当其冲的当然是喜欢讲话的人又或者是靠嘴吧吃饭的人。话虽如此,条例归条例,饭照样开,地球照样转,生活照样过。
扭开电视机还是会有声音的.

除了音乐以外将会有一把把不同的声音。一句接一句讲下去。因为每一个人只能讲一句话,所以人在银幕里会不断地消失又不断地出现。
有时真的非常缺人手,就连摄影棚的扫地阿嫂也叫来凑个数。

今后街市平静了,因为人人已一卡在手,只要有什么要求尽管写在卡上。上街购物询问售货员什么的,就写在卡上。当然,售货员也拿出一大叠的卡片写下回复你。

如此这般,你会在大街上看见无数的人在传递卡片。“一碟鸡饭!”一张卡。“几块钱的?”又一张卡。卡来卡去。卡片满天飞满天扬。
接着,别忘了手语这门才艺。哑巴再也不用吃黄莲了!以后将是哑巴当道的时代!你将看到一排排直竖横挂的招牌,到处都是手语招生,就连在街上卖铁打药膏的江湖术士也提卡报名。

口吃的人最吃香!一句话吐几个字,又吞几个字。还引已为豪而沾沾自喜!
能够掌握语文能力的人也不错!一句话灌满康熙字典里的连惯词。虽然,如此,但是,不止,况且,因为,于是,姑且,最后,因此……….。一气呵成。但必须中气十足。

最可怜的是热恋中的情侣,“爱你在心口难开!”
今后,国内的犯罪率也增加了!你将不会听到“打抢啊!打抢啊!”的呼叫声。而我们将会看到一群人追着一个小贼,这一大堆人满头大汗,高举着卡片写着“抢劫啊!抢劫啊!”

这是一个什么样的世界!群众都愤愤不平了!他们愤慨地走上街头“安静”地示威!顿时,街市人头汹涌,拥挤到水泄不通!每个人手里撑起举过头的大卡片!卡片上面写着大大的几个字“我们要说话!”,“我们要骂人!”, “让我死掉算了!”

这次的“静站”游行不久就传进了政府部门。
由于政府人员也被“一天一句话”的条例限制,在会议上也卡来卡去。结果,因为形势的紧迫,逼于无奈!只好一致通过,撤销“一天一句话”的禁令。
撤销禁令的消息一传出去!那一刻,真可以用举国欢庆来形容!你可以看见和听见,每一人脸上都充满喜悦。他们快乐地问候对方,甚至快乐地问候对方的爹和娘!

奇怪!居然没有人生气!

后人,把这一天纳入健力士,称作“世人快乐指数最高的一天”。
