Merdeka 2019

The independence
marks freedom, a release
prompts a fresh lease
of life and liberty.

Each year the day
stats with a parade
an expression against
the tirade of authority.

Decades have passed
do we find any change?
could not be seen in the range,
representation of autocracy in local attire.

The celebrations are a farce.
another holiday in the year
nothing valid to hear
as speeches turn rhetoric.

Malaysia confronts
kleptocracy, encounters racism,
all being farther to realism.
One more Merdeka!
