13 days...

13 days to Merdeka...

I just want to put a flag on the wall
and show it to all:

That even in a land afar
Malaysia is in my heart and never far.

Sometimes its hard
to express your love for the country.

Someone tried to rap the Negaraku
ended up defending his kuku.

Someone wanted to draw the flag on cake
but if cut it its disrespect.

Someone hang it down their building,
copped a 'must be horizontal not lateral' scolding.

Wearing the flag around the body,
Is also subject to rules aplenty.

Oh why the hassle, why the rules
as long as the heart is true.

I sat here and ponder thus
wtih 13 days left to the 31st of August.
