Passport to Heaven
There isn’t a better way than
marrying a female graduate from Shanghai
and then run your own enterprise there
for the rest of your life
you’ll never have to work for others
Husbands and wife
You can conquer the planets
She’ll only ask for one thing
that you’ll never have another woman
That’s still better
than remaining in Nanyang
cheating your company
by cooking noodles in the engineering office
and charge two hours O/T
or sweet talk about passports to heaven
at MRTs, Bus Stops and the Malls
so that more people come to your place
dropping in lots of gold coins
for you to siphon half of them
The priest knows nothing of it
He doesn’t want to be seen counting the coins
You won’t be a quitter
You can still remit portions of your earning to Posb Bank
and keep the ball rolling in Singapura
Isn’t this better than insulting others
every day ?
Find faults, with them, even if these people
slip and fall in front of you?
If I write two lines like:
The sky is blue
My love for Zola is true
The five-year-old kid will still be jealous
He respects only the white
Therefore I must say
the sky is white
He even insulted me for hanging
red silk on my windows
He said white would be more appropriate!
Do you still want to argue with this five year old bugger?
Listen to the sermon of the kiasu
which he had repeated thousands of times
in anticipation that the fools will be dropping in
and thus the gold coins too will be rolling in
for him to visit Geylang and Keong Saik
His gods which are almighty
must be deaf and dumb
Why did they allow
four planes to cause
much damages in the U.S.?
The third plane didn’t hit the nuclear plant
The Ta Pei Kong at Pennsylvania must be great
for risking his life
to save the plant
Why didn’t Osama attack Shanghai?
Blame it on the kiasus
Who always talk big
The China men never do
They befriend even the ghosts
once very year during the seventh Lunar moon.

Notes: Kiasu is a Chinese word meaning, a person who is afraid of losing and thus he does not dare to compete with others.
Geylang and Keong Saik are two places well known for prostitution.
