Malaysia’s Nonagenerian Hero
An aged saviour out of retirement
emerged leading a nation in strive
to oust a demoness and her spouse,
rallying a people, so long subdued
thinking their lot heavenly n’ fair.
This day in victory’s hold, so sweet
rejoicing in the aged hero’s valour,
felling the evil couple’s regime foul
wielding his spawn of new leaders
dispensable with check ‘n balance
with a promise of change if soured.
All hail the saviour come to redeem
earlier failings and rule of tyranny,
In a full cycle of karmic resurgence.

You have observed the truth of the political landscape and emotional unrest of our nation and freezed every of the inner struggles towards victory in words appropriate , and reflecting still in greater depth of the ardous journey of our veteran reformers and the strength of the voice of the people to attest to the workings of the Cosmic law of Karma and that too in a brilliance of your poetical eloquence ! ☺
Thanks prabhu. It was a moment of total exasperation and gave the right impetus for the poem.
