Fizzling Battle Royale?

As the battle lines were being drawn
And the stage set,
For a battle royale
Between the incumbency
And those
Who would seek it
By proxy

With juicy allusions to virgin sex
And corrupt practice

And the ghost of Altantuya
Haunts,
Even as the apex court
Affirmed the conviction of
The two ex-cops,
For the killing
Of the Mongolian beauty

One of which convicts has since absconded
To the Land Down Below,
Under circumstances
That have raised
More questions
Than answered anything

The whole gruesome murder episode
Murder without motive,
Has got more tongues wagging
Than not

People ask:
Could the answer
To the mystery
 Of the missing motive,
Fell the incumbency
And help the other (s) to incumbency
By proxy?

Even as fingers point to 
The folly, allegedly 
And the profligacy, ditto 
Of sovereign fund 1MDB
He be roasted though,
Nary a squeak
Much less
A a care

Well,
As Bolehlanders were
Looking forward to
A slugfest,
The promise
Of a battle royale
Is fizzling out
Like a soda?

Not surprising
If so,
For
Incumbency means
Power,
And its use
Or abuse
Or threat of 
Its use
Or abuse,
Can often silence 
A challenger

One proxy mouth 
It has already scared to silence
Another, not yet


If truth
Be told,
Bolehlanders
Would rather

That all dirt
And skeletons
And anything else
Untoward
There be,
May be 
Unearthed

That Bolehland
May eventually,
Be renewed
And healed

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
