A Journo's Call To Arms

Beat the drums..
and play the pipes.
Sound the call..
and onward march.

Brothers sisters..
ink for blood.
Hand in hand..
down boulevards.

Ball point armed..
felt tip sharp.
Full charged phones...
lens focus tight.

Memory cards..
and hard drive whir.
Keyboard clack..
as touch pad slide.

Shine bright flash..
recorder poke.
Doorstop em'..
lets all cucuk.

Bring to live..
our mandate clear.
Letting rakyat..
know what's what.

Some may fall..
along the way.
Stand we must..
this is our day.

(In solidarity with news weekly The Heat which has been suspended by a repressive regime.)
