Angry poetry

Angry poetry
by Azly Rahman

Shouldn't have I been angry and write this cranky grumpy poetry
T's the state of the world so sorry
That has made my brain cells fried and my emotions so roller-coastery
Cool me off by writing poetry
Dip me in Loon Lake or the one where Loch Ness have its weekend party
I am cranky grumpy angry
And I am not sorry ...

Thought of taking a walk to Ben and Jerry's
OD'ed me on a gallon of Chunky Monkey
Started thinking of Malaysia's Bersih Rally
 Give me that gallon of Yellow Mellow, Ben and Jerry!
I want it now or you won't like to see me cranky
You capitalist ice cream maker colonialist imperialist ice breaker!
 I am cranky and sweaty
And I am not sorry for this cranky poetry

Yellow Mellow hot potato
Yo' Malaysians you are so cranky
You masses are angry I'll spray you with sambal tumis aplenty
Stupid rallies they say
Disturbing the peace of this country that is in harmony
Shut up masses
Hush and shush!
While we steal diamonds, submarines, Twin Towers,  golden yachts,
                                and smuggle them out of the country
Don't be cranky now
Don't be grumpy
It's all a game of who's mighty!

The heat
Intensity
Relativity
Hiroshima
Nagasaki
Humans are crazy
Radioactive crazy
Terrorists aplenty
Suicide bombers spirituality gone Lucifer-crazy
Purgatory
Black Sabbath Fender Stratocaster Hell-Raising guitar-ripping crazy
Grumpy cranky sweaty I am in the heat of New York city
Country roads take me home Sin City Jay Bee

My body's sweating with indescribable beauty
Blood sweat tears of industry
Like the workers of the world uniting in harmony
March on walk on carry on
In the heat of the summer night
Bring down the corporate imperialists down to their knees
Globalization ain't apple pie and cream cheese
A billion served a billion more starved
McJihad McTerror McModern Slavery
Aaargh...hot sweet summer beauty
 this heat is making me write cranky poetry
Stop me
Take away my pen
before I march alongside Old Man Samad Said in his next BERSIH Rally
