Bersih 3.0 – A Poem By Ahmad Ali Karim

On April 28, 2012, there was a demonstration called Bersih 3.0 in Kuala Lumpur. The demonstrators damaged lots of things including plants and left a lot ofrubbish around the city. And they blamed others for their violent acts.

Bersih, Oh Bersih

Bersih, oh Bersih what have you done?

Breaking the laws and hurting people,

Stamping on a car just like a Tarzan,

Overturned the car just to cause trouble.

Why must they really had to do that?

Was the violence really that necessary?

They might even hurt their own cute pet,

What they did were really ugly.

They are ruining the people’s mind,

Telling them to riot, riot and riot,

Maybe next they’ll destroy an aeroplane,

Buildings and plants, just like bad robot.

Police brutality is what they claimed,

Twisting stories again and again,

Wanting others to be blamed,

My oh my, what a shame!
