Excuse Me!


Where do you draw the line?

naked idiots,
urinating, defacing,
shouting profanities,
Has moral been misplaced?

The absence of hudud – floods
serving alcohol – MH370 go missing
slaughter of buffalos – Nepal earthquake
To pin the cause on man’s superstition.

Culture and belief are linked,
Grandmothers tales to be heeded,
common sense and respect for nature,
be safe instead of being sorry.

To travel to foreign lands,
a guest in another’s home,
keep within the Etiquettes,
have good manners and high morals.

By C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
