Balancing delicately between the two evils…

Lockdown is on!

Lockdown is off!

Not because it is safe now.

It’s to prevent the economy

from diving under!

****

Thousands throng the beach,

and camp near waterfalls,

while hospitals continue to battle virus

and vans with caskets lined up

near burial grounds.

Many shudder at the ignorance

“Are lives so insignificant?”

****

What will it take

for reality to sink-in

to convince them?

Or has a sense of hopelessness

breeds insensitivity

to block out fear and pain?

****

Safety and health

or economy?

It’s a delicate balancing act!

Are our kids matured?

Are our kids matured? ( A senryu)

Tolerant patience,

the ‘grown-up’ demeanour of

unchildish children

This senryu reflects how some children mature at different ages. Some earlier in life and some later, which some adults, never seem to!

Quotes:-
1. “Youth ends when egotism does; maturity begins

when one lives for others.” ― Hermann Hesse, Gertrude

2. “Maturity is when your world opens up and you realize that you are not
the center of it.” - M.J. Croan

Terjemahan Google ke bahasa melayu Adakah anak-anak anda telah matang?

Adakah anak-anak kita sudah matang?

Kesabaran yang bertoleransi,
sikap ‘dewasa’ kanak-kanak
yang tidak bersikap kanak-kanak

Senyru ini menggambarkan bagaimana beberapa kanak-kanak matang pada usia yang berbeza. Dan ada juga dewasa yang tidak matang-matang langsung

谷歌翻译成中文- 你的孩子成熟了吗?

宽容的耐心,
的“成年”举止
幼稚的孩子

这句Hai句反映了一些孩子在不同年龄时的成熟情况。有些成年人似乎永远不会成熟!
