Untitled 2

November 8, 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.

This week, after
a scandal or two,
I learnt a new term:
“Cyril Wong School of Criticism”.
So, for a season,
I shall call everything
“Cyril Wong School of Criticism”,
wrap it up in
two baby diapers,
and then surrender
the sweetness
and freshness
to the sky.
