A Poem to the Minister

In light of the recent sanctimonious statement made by the Tourism Minister, I humbly dedicate this poem to him. Poetry isn’t my forte but I will do my best. 

 Have you forgotten the strength of Khadijah in Muhammad’s life?  

 Have you not heard the sacrifices made by Florence Nightingale?  

Have you not learnt anything from the love story of Romeo & Juliet?  

Can you not feel the honour of Siti Nurbaya in her love towards Shamsul Bahri?  

Can you not taste the spirits of Marianne Dashwood in Sense & Sensibility?  

Can you not see the compassion in Mother Theresa’s eyes?  

Have you not heard of Queen Isabella in famous Columbus Voyage? 

Have you not learnt about the courageous Aisyah Ghani? 

Your ignorance, dear Sir, is indeed a  bliss.  

To all the women bloggers out there – to name a few Susan Loone, Datuk Marina, Lulu of What a Lulu, Acciaccatura, Nuraina A. Samad and TyphoonSue – I stand by you. I end this posting with a quote from the great Shakespeare:  ‘Women are the books, the arts, the academies, that show, contain and nourish all the world.’

  1. hi elviza,

    can i answer the questions for him?

    — he has never heard of all these women.

    Hi Kak Ena, I know I am wasting good valuable time on him!

  2. To utter such words, he has forgotten that he came from the womb of a woman. What a pity, what a shame … i feel sad for the women in his life.

  4. Dear Elviza,

    Never has words uttered summed up the total intelligence of one’s cranial content as those words uttered by him. Its all foul smelling air!!

    Dear Mr. Clark,

    Thank you for the support – read your posting about it.

  5. i can’t believe “that” came from a Minister! Does he not think before he speaks????

    No K’ron, apparently he does not think at all for that matters. Hope you and the kids are fine. How s the weather up in the freezing continent? 🙂

  6. the bright sun can be very deceiving over here. We went out just now thinking it would be a lovely outing in the sunshine. But it was still FREEZING! Bila nak cuti-cuti UK??
