NaPoWriMo Poem #25: A Sad Little Joey

One little kangaroo,
Living in a zoo,
Poor little one,
Feeling so blue.

It wants to be free,
It wants to run away,
It just does not like,
Being captured all day.

Then a good news,
Comes to the joey,
It’s going to be freed,
To be with it’s mother, Chloe.

NaPoWriMo Poem #24: The Bottle and The Ball

A bottle fell down,
From a little brown shelf,
The bottle looked around,
And picked up itself.

The bottle saw a ball,
And it said, “Hello”,
The ball gave the bottle,
A beautiful pink mallow.

And the bottle said,
“Thank you, ball”,
And it gave the ball,
A cute little doll.Bottle and Ball

There are lots of cool inventions in the first half of the 20th century.

Electrically heated vest, portable radio hat and lots of other cool things.

There’s even an early version of a car GPS unit.

Just that it doesn’t use satellite.

Now why not we take a look at some of the inventions…

NaPoWriMo Poem #23: Poor Little Bear

  🐻 🐻 🐻

Poor little bear,
Sitting in the sun,
His friends ran away,
And so left none.

He looked to his right,
He saw a black cat,
That made him wonder,
“Is that a bat?”

He heard some noises,
But he saw no one,
And then came his friends,
With plates of hot buns.

Fred, The Lonely Scarecrow – A Story By Ahmad Ali Karim

A tall scarecrow named Fred, was standing in the middle of a corn field.

He felt so lonely one day, after the kind old farmer passed away.

He saw birds in the sky, and he wanted to be friends with the ones who could fly.

But the birds were all scared of Fred, as scarecrows were meant to make them scared.

He could not tell them with words, that he did not want to scare the birds.

He could not even write a note, nor send the birds a Morse Code.

And Fred was very sad, to be the one that made others scared.

The lonely, sad
Fred, the sad and lonely scarecrow by Ahmad Ali Karim.

NaPoWriMo Poem #22: Little Brown Box

Today is day 22 of NaPoWriMo and today, NaPoWriMo challenges us to write a poem for children. So, here is my poem:

Cute little brown box,
Sitting upside down,
Poor little box,
It made me frown,

Comes Little Jenny,
She put it upright,
Now the little box,
Smiles with delight.

Thank you little Jen,
For cheering me up,
Here’s a candy,
And a bottle of syrup.


Lim Guan Eng: DAP Says No To Hudud

DAP’s Lim Guan Eng said that hudud can’t be implemented without consensus.

That was his respond to the Kelantan MB’s statement, saying that PAS will implement hudud laws in Kelantan.

The Star reported that:

The issue of Pakatan supporting hudud, he said, did not arise as DAP was against the implementation of the Islamic law.

He also said, “Pakatan’s position has not changed because DAP’s position in opposing the implementation of the hudud has not changed.” 

Lim pointed out that the opposition pact’s common policy platform and its 2013 General Election manifesto did not mention the implementation of hudud.

He added that neither did it make any mention of the setting up of an Islamic state.

This, he said, had been agreed to by PAS, DAP and PKR – STAR.

Opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) leaders especially its deputy president, Mohamad Sabu always says that DAP’s Lim Guan Eng understands Islam better than UMNO’s Muslims leaders.

So what will PAS’s leaders say when LIm Guan Eng speak out his stand on the hudud issue?

Are they going to blame it on UMNO as another UMNO’s conspiracy?

NaPoWriMo Poem #21: A Silly Poem

I have a good friend,
Who has a silly hat,
He loves doing silly things,
Like dancing with his cat.

My friend is very funny,
He’s funnier than the clowns,
But sometimes he’s weird,
Thinking his silly hat is a crown.

He thinks that cats are cute,
And he love other animals too,
He has a very good heart,
He loves to help, no matter who.

NaPoWriMo Poem #20: My Beautiful Aunty

Today I’m writing a poem about my lovely aunty, Kauthar Rahana Omar who is my father’s eldest sister.

I have a beautiful aunty,
Who is very, very sweet,
And she makes me happy,
Whenever we meet.

My aunty’s warm smiles,
Are cuter than any smiley 🙂
Or emoticons as people say,
For she is very jolly.

My sweet aunty
I snapped this special photo of my sweet aunty last week when all of us went back to Kuala Terengganu for my cousin’s wedding.
