Living in a box

Ordinary Malaysians may be excused these days if they feel as if they’ve been boxed-in, what with the increasing restrictions that have been imposed by the authorities of late.

For one, we’ve already been told that it isn’t kosher to sport black shirt, especially in the glaring presence of lighted candles in an open public space. The contrast, it seems, can be too jarring for some people.

Then, one can’t articulate the name of a certain deceased foreigner in public, let alone celebrate her posthumous birthday, for fear of her ghost haunting some other people.

Today we are made to understand that one cannot indulge in fasting, especially under a canopy. It befuddles the mind, though, to think that a group of people who fast, and subsequently grow physically weak, could inflict violence or social disorder to the extent that it might harm ‘national security’.

    Now we have the latest “preventive arrest”
    Carried out in their interest “for their best”
    When branded as “in opposition” you get no rest
    With caution thrown to the wind there’s “no standard” in crest
