Annang Culture


Shouting loud at night
A Chinese girl with long hairs
Chased by masquerades
Because she took the wrong road
A stranger in Annang land

My Heart


Snow hammering my door
Ice painting my sidewalk
Cold crippling my fingers
I rely on my heart for warmth

Tears dropping down my eyes
Heartbreaks from back and front
Disappointment everywhere
I rely on my heart for consolation

No money
No friends
Boring life
I rely on my heart for hope

The Dog and the Cat


I forgot that the Dog and the Cat cannot stay together without a spat!

I saw the dog and the cat
Both sitting gently on the mat
Hearing the cat miaowing
I know its happening
Maybe there must have been a spat

Coming out of the house with my hat
I saw the dog lying flat on the mat
Struggling to make a run
When the cat has no gun
But the dog is bigger in terms of fat

Then I realise strength is not how big
Because the cat might have given a kick
Right on the dog’s back
We saw it as a pat
Which makes the dog want to take a leak

Then I throw my hat on the cat
While the dog run and keeps the bark
That was just a wonder
That makes me to ponder
Then I conclude, the cat is a brat
