Just imagine what might happen if the savvy campaigners had capitalise on the cute illustrations and the darndest remarks, and left your books at strategic and high impact public places for the hoi polloi to view. Would you object, if that was what happened?

Anyway, as Ella said, Enjoys Paris. Enjoyable moments - yes, I had a few there ... Ohlala

3 ekor gagak hitam diatas tiang lampu…

Gagak hitam basah
ditimpa hujan
awan mendung
rintik merempuh dinding flat usang
Tiga ekor gagak bertengek
diatas wayar
tiang lampu milik ‘gomen’
gagak hitam berborak
berborak-borak
isu politik nasional
bahang musim pilihanraya
selepas membuang undi
4 negeri bertukar tangan.

gagak pertama:

“aku tegar menyokong pemerintah
selama-lamanya. kerajaan ini banyak berjasa, kalian tahu apa?”

gagak kedua:

“sehingga mampus, aku sesekali tidak akan menyokong kerajaan rasuah ini.
kerajaan zalim ini tidak dapat undi aku. barang naik tanpa henti. gaji aku
cukup makan.”

gagak ketiga: (hanya terdiam. sesekali mengangguk-anggukkan paruhnya.
diam seekor gagak menyimpan rasa. bersuara bila perlu)

petir berdentam dentum
guruh keras
kilat sabung menyabung.

Tiga ekor gagak masih bertenggek
gagak-gagak hitam
melihat arus perubahan
melanda daerah mereka.

Gagak hitam pertama terus bersuara
lantang
menyakitkan hati.

Gagak kedua
tidak kurang keras
sekali-sekala
mencarut-carut.

Gagak ketiga
diam.
berjaga-jaga.
bersedia.

(errr…ada lagi…belum habis lagi nih. Nak tahu apa terjadi kepada 3 ekor gagak tersebut, jom masuk blog saya.)
