Antara Kuning dan Sawo Matang

Matahari kian pudar,
Sang bulan kian menyerlah,
Desas desus kini berkata,
Yang datang hanya berciri sama.

Adakah kita benarnya berbeza? 
Tangan, kaki, bukankah sama? 
Darah merah semua pun ada, 
Hanya kulit sikit tak serupa.

Dalam hati adanya cinta,
Cintakan benar, tulus dan nyata;
Bukan bohong, dusta dan derma,
Bukan bodoh, bukannya kita.

Cukuplah! Cukuplah! Hai keyboard warrior, 
Kamu bukan pendeta kita;
Kamu hanya biul dan hampa,
Tukarlah siaran, Astro kan ada.

Of Dogs and Walks

If you're going for a walk, 
Watch out for dogs; 

For they bark and they sneer, 
And they don't drink beer;
Which is what you might do, 
After a walk or two;

For dogs will be dogs, 
And cogs will be cogs, 
And cogs that don't work, 
Are like dogs refusing to work;

When dogs bark a lot, 
They make such a fuss;
Your ears begin to rot, 
And maybe you might cuss;

So wear what you will, 
When you go for a walk, 
Care not for the dog, nor the bark or the cog;

Walk as you will, 
And talk as you must;

For dogs that bark with a shrill, 
Are definitely unjust.
