MALAYSIAN TANKA ECHOES 75: PLEDGE

MALAYSIAN TANKA ECHOES 75: PLEDGE

 

all connect by pledge

lone kid shows middle finger

steals show from parade

think and act within the box

no fun allow for bored child

 

Note:

We often get serious over some petty things with children, forgetting its part of development. It’s just not fair or just to highlight the child in social media. We were kids before and the discipline was no better, but we grew out of it.

Today we see President Trump shows his middle finger towards North Korean nuclear threat (Yahoo news); but it was America who threatened Kim first. The President of USA was always exceptional. When you have the military might, you have the right to moralize about human rights.
