Self Defence
Self Defence

In your modern nation
Your civilisation
Is under a threat from miniaturisation 
Cos one day they’ll make it, in China they’ll fake it
A nice compact nuclear bomb...

That fits in your pocket
And no one cares where it comes...Read More

Premium Member Clouds On My Shoes
Clouds on my shoes, a song in my throat, but stuck on a big giant lump.
Too big to ignore.
I concentrate on my cloud shoes.
Decorated beautifully in Taiwan by people I will never meet.
With crayons and the words ‘school counselor’ on...Read More

Son went to his hotel room after a delicious lunch
When he opened the door there was a loud crunch
There were huge cockroaches crawling over the floor
He grabbed his bags and ran straight out of the door

Tell them i was here
I carried them in my sack for nine months.
Tell them the ugly pains I encroached.
The fire that was in my chest.
The belly aches, the back pain, heartburn and headaches.
Tell them i endured the dull ending pain...Read More

Why does the voiceless canary stare so bleakly?
Why do the sullen grey clouds desert a sombre sky?
As the ugly black smog blots out the valiant sun’s rays
The honey less flowers kiss the dying bees’ goodbye
Never Enough

Originating from a tropical country
My family and I decided to go to Taiwan
We were on an airbus, big and long
Sitting with each other and playing
We set off heading to the east
My, was it a long journey of 4 hours.

Napoleon’s men marched on Moscow
And promptly perished.
So did Hitler’s men!
Once the US wanted to ‘save’ Vietnam, 
Made life miserable— 
For both Americans and the Vietnamese.
Then, Iraq grew restless 
And wanted Kuwait back.
For China,
It was Tibet then, Taiwan now,
Anything else tomorrow,

Evil Mystic Water Well

In simple terms
Two sides greet;
Forge a new script


Two Chinas meet
Singapore Saturday;
November seventh


Face to face
On neutral grounds;
Sculpt new trends


A sanguine talk
To forge ahead;
To heal old wounds


Positive moves
To set bold sights;
To build anew


History comes around
In one sure act;
New ties bring smiles
