Untitled 1

November 7, 2009

In the wake of a critical review of his book of poems, a famous Singaporean blogger posted responses that discussed the merits of his own writing. This parody first appeared in a comment to a Facebook link that had a brief challenge to write a “Gilbert Koh poem”. It was later shared but remains unapproved on Koh’s blog.

Earlier, we saw some NUS lit
student’s review, read it 5 times,
and wondered how the poet
would react. So we typed
His reply was fierce, and it
kept coming; so did the comments.
“That one very funny!” I emailed
Eric, who also won a Golden Point.
And we laughed and clapped
our hands like children:
Eric, in Shanghai, probably
also farted.
