INNOCENCE (清白): (POEM TRANSLATION)
This innocence is so brilliant, don’t make us all cry;
Appoint a learned guy, he will know how best to lie.
You may not believe the verdict,
Found not guilty, wise handpicked.
Democracy is a football game;
Blame rules, not a shame to frame.
Praise the man who finds a princely donor;
In such time, only a genius meets a savior.
In a virtual world, truth is not a virtue;
Money and muscles move moral value.
All these tricks are from his foxy mentor;
Vultures kill one another in greedy culture.
Citizens cannot change anything at all;
At end of brawl, all nonsense will fall.

I really appreciate her good will. Like Mdm. Liu May Ling, I do not know both ladies at all. It’s really difficult to translate without knowing Malaysian politics. Once again, thank you to both ladies.
