The Three Lakes

This lake
It is so deep
My legs couldn't touch the bottom
I am drowning.

Help me,

Thank you sir
But your lake sir,
though not as deep
is still drowning me.

Help me,

No not you
Not your lake sir
More shallow than the first
But deeper than the last

Help me.

Salam Cikgu,

Think this is the first time I'm reading a prose from you. Honestly, I'm OK, sir?

Alas, I am here in the North but my spirit is there with all of you.

Kata Tak Nak said...

I am okay, its just that I feel like writng about these sarkas people in another way.

Me no undestand too. Too deep!

Jesse Jr said...

ahaa... but chegu, you forgot to mention that the third lake is controlled by an evil witch...

may not be deeper than the first lake, but possibly be more dangerous...

(i might be way off right here, aint i?)

Kata Tak Nak said...

What Jesse Jr say is right on the dot.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Jesse Jr.
Yes, I should have said that Nessie is there but I wanted only 4 lines. Glad you got it. On the dot.

Eskapisminda said... too if not for Jesse's comment. Wow. The prose is as dalam as the lakes... :)

The second lake is polluted beyond description. Only one of their own kind can survive in it.
