I Petition the King

I being of enslaved mind write to the King of Malaysia requesting Freedom
From it outside the thick walls of the palace peninsula I was found eating
The wind and barely there when the newspapers got wind of it kacang putih
Kata pepatih and scattered my words and caused me to walk first sideways
Like the crab and than backwards like I ought in approaching the King

I being of enslaved mind write to the King of Malaysia requesting Freedom
From it on American soil I was found and there was I provoked by
A woman called Liberty to engage in utter sedition to perdition to petition
For licentious favors such as befits only the King of Malaysia with native
Original aboriginal markings in clandestinely places and races

I being of enslaved mind write to the King of Malaysia requesting Freedom
From it in subordination utter nothing against the persuasion of King And
Prime Minister and everything against the West and especially carefully affix my bra,
Not burning it for any write thoughts that occur in whatever part of my
Female brain and to remain sane knock on the windows of the palace peninsula first

I being of enslaved mind write to the King of Malaysia requesting Freedom
From it ask the natives to appraise the King’s thoughts towards our reason for treason
And the parts of myself that are ‘aurat’ sexually arousing to the holy men and
Endorse pretty women husbands among them and recommend the ugly women go labor
at the Malaysian Government to present a prettier face to the rest of the world.

I being of enslaved mind write to the King of Malaysia requesting Freedom
From it being right about mad elephants, yellow and purple umbrellas, Communist Insurgents,
Colonial Guerillas, choke on the Malaysian syllabus with the lofty goal of swallowing my own throat
find myself naturally relieving myself of the patriotic duties of
masuk kandang kambing mengembek, masuk kandang kerbau menguak

I being of enslaved mind write to the King of Malaysia requesting Freedom,
translating that for the future generation, is to learn to trade in a language
where we are not always a goat in its penn or a buffalo but a human being, created in the image of God,
and not quartered and halved in a way that demeans one race and exalts the other.
Humbly I being of enslaved mind ask politely to be freed from racial and religious polity before

going completely insane, I, the Individual, pray for Justice to reign.
