30th August 2015

The Arab Spring has reached Malaysian shores
But Najib and his armies step aside
And even grant safe passage to the scores
Of yellow T-shirts marching side by side
Demanding that he hand over his crown
For millions he received from overseas
In private bank accounts somewhere in town
Kept undisclosed in spite of public pleas
But to his credit tear gas isn't used
To clear the streets crammed full of yellow shirts
And salvage traffic codes that were abused
By law-sidestepping folk in jeans and skirts;
As long as everyone is safe from harm
The victory of this round's in his palm.
