MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 312: SHOUTS OF EXCELLENCE

MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 312: SHOUTS OF EXCELLENCE

 

world watch great handshake

dominant voice dialogue

smirk with no sanction

 

excellence exclaim

dead buried in bygone past

end with salvo shouts

 

denuclearized dream

benefit with best bargain

fiend evolves to friends

 

POEM TRANSLATION ECHOES 310 & 311

POEM TRANSLATION ECHOES 310 & 311

 

Aussieian 2011 responded to haiku in a tanka thus:

 

 

Mere Tokenism Talk

僅是單純論

Expounding Global Accord

闡述全球的協議

False Smiles False Hand shakes

假笑假手動

And Humanity Evolves

随着人性的变化

To a World of Destruction

走向世界的毀滅

 

This tanka is my response to his tanka:

 

   ONLY ONE

(僅有一個)

 

whiten and whitewash

美白和粉飾

America First accord

美國的首個協議

all false but power

全假但權力

obey or bomb to stone age

石器時代服或炸

only one mighty control

僅是個強暴控制

 

 

Y.C.. Kan responded to echoes 310 thus:

 

Smoking crack peace pipes

和平筦冒煙

Dirty bathing with flip flops

不鬆弛以肮脏浴

Streaking media show

裸奔媒体秀

 

This is my response:

 

SHOW TIME

(表演時間)

 

 

dream of dirty bath

梦想的肮浴

streak out with cool, clean image

裸跑外凉、圖像清

cherish costly fumes

懷有怒火高

 

POEM TRANSLATION ECHOES 309

POEM TRANSLATION ECHOES 309

 

SING WITHOUT MUSIC

 (無音樂的歌)

 

two scoundrels talk peace

兩氓論和平

at murderous Pirates’ Bay

在兇狠的海盜灣

now a posh red spot

一個現代红

 

mistrusted meeting

無信任會議

peasy prey for an ambush

易行埋伏的捕食

hard headache for host

為主人頭疼

 

mongers for peace prize

販子和平獎

mutants win new world order

突赢世界新秩序

nobel not noble

諾貝爾無俨

 

Note:

 

Capela in Italian meant sing without music; though the architect was British. The Colonialist government positioned their artillery guns towards the Bay for Japanese invasion, but they came from the north by bicycles. The colonial government ran for their lives; leaving more than ten thousand local Chinese killed and drowned alive in the sea. The Novel committee for peace does not always have noble selection for candidates. The Singapore government spend more than S20 million to hold such a summit, not only to market the island to the world, but also to provide a chance for North Korea to open its door, for the benefit for all. Hopefully the notorious cowboys do not harbor rash movie drama during the summit.
