Body of lion, head of man

Tomorrow we celebrate our country’s 61st anniversary of independence. Happy birthday Malaysia. The day when it all began was 31 August 1957.

For Sabahans and Sarawakians, their significant date is 16 Sept 1963.

For the Hope & Change volk, Year Zero of Malaysia Baru began 9 May 2018. Hail Victory!

First Merdeka to be celebrated under Harapan

Dearest Leader of the ruling party was born 10 July 1925. He is 93 this year.

  When the first anniversary of Harapan’s election mandate rolls around on the next May 9th, 2019, Mahathir Mohamad will be 94 years old

  The second Harapan anniversary coincides with year 2020, when Mahathir can usher in his ‘Vision’ at age 95

 By Harapan’s third anniversary on 9 May 2021, Mahathir will be 96 years old

  Towards 2022, the fourth year of Harapan rule, Mahathir will be 97

•  Upon completion of the Harapan mandate in 2023 after its fifth anniversary, the 98-year-old Mahathir will again lead his coalition into reelection battle, yes?

Malaysia Boleh! Mahathir Boleh!

The Second Coming

Penned by renowned poet William Butler Yeats, The Second Coming was first published in 1920. Yeats wrote his famous poem a mere five years before our own Dearest Leader (b. 1925) came into this world.

Among the most resonant – and most often quoted – lines of The Second Coming is this couplet:

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world

It is only natural to wonder whether the centre of a country is able to hold when its government is built on a house of cards where the four (PKR, DAP, PAN, Pribumi) competing suites are so suspicious and distrustful of the other.

BELOW: Flashback 2012 – Mahathirism 2.0 is only a continuation of Mahathirism 1.0

The only barrier to things falling apart is a man now in his tenth decade of life. And then what? The loosening of “the blood-dimmed tide”. The centre really cannot hold.

Is some revelation at hand? In the immortal words of Yeats, “in the sands of the desert a shape with lion body and the head of a man”.


By the way, when you put a lion and a lamb together in a pen, the one walking out alive from the encounter is surely not the lamb. Something for the Hallelujah Horde to reflect deeper on.


Yeats’ Second Coming poem concludes with the stanza:

The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

  1. What else is new?
    Tried pitting anwar/azmin? not working out….
    tried pittting azmin/rafizi? not much impact
    tried pitting anwar/mahathir? also zero
    Always pitting muslims/christians? well, for some stupid muslims, they are always in threat…everthing is a threat…cinema can be a threat
    And now, you hope for the coalition to fail……losers….no forward thinking matters…..

    1. aptly written.
      HA said the malays will punish the PH in GE14.
      looks like the other around.

      Malays are smarter than she thinks. thats a fact. However, she is not as clever as she thinks. that is also a fact.

  2. For the first time ever since I set foot in the USA, I will not be flying the Malaysian flag at home on Merdeka Day. Instead I will display the Cuban flag which my husband had bought when he was in Cuba eons ago. He was a fan of Fidel Castro during his youth. He displays the Cuban flag on the 4th of July every year as he hates the US politicians both Democrats and Republicans.

    1. lantak lo whether Cuba or China flag. Better still if you decide to stay and not coming back.
      Fly the stars and stripes. better chance of to live peacefully with your non muslim neighbours. LOL

      1. Non muslims overseas are wayyyyy better than the local ones zillions tines. Period. Ohhh, nanti banyak makhluk akan meroyan nih.

        1. migrate lo since for you they are so much better than here.
          long live Tun. Hidup PH!💪
