Ode to fallen but unwanted heroes

The Japanese had long since gone,
their bayonets are no longer drawn;
the long fought bitter war was won
but sadly not for those truly fallen

From the holes emerged ethnic heroes
who had stayed still while others died,
to shamelessly rob victory from others
whose real sacrifices are now denied

Eliminate any hero’s deeds and name,
erase their service from our memory;
don't remind the bigots of their shame,
their absence in defending our country

Smash to smithereens their memorial,
'cause new ‘heroes’ need broken bricks
to build their ethnic wira credential,
complete with keris, hornets & tricks

  1. I have the feeling that come the next revision of History textbooks for Malaysian schools, the role of the MPAJA will be erased completely. In its place we will have the mamaks led by uncle zam who singlehandedly opposed the japs(with their keris). This whitewashing of historical facts has been occurring for years in Japan and nobody there ever complained.
