Politik Ulangan (1993 -2020)

After Lat, 1995 re-presented in The Mahathir Years blog.

1993 – Anwar Ibrahim is appointed Deputy Prime Minister and presumptive heir to Mahathir as Prime Minister of Malaysia.
2020 – Mahathir resigns as Prime Minister of Malaysia for the second time, dashing, once again, Anwar’s expectations as his air-apparent.

Nampaknya hubungan Anwar/ Mahathir memberi contoh bagi teori Pulangan Abadi yang dibentangkan oleh Friedrich Nietzsche.

Politik Melayu (1969 – ?)

After a cartoon by Morgan Chua, Far Eastern Economic Review, 26 February 1987

1969 Mahathir writes an open Letter to the sitting PM, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra.

Hang Tua (sangat) menewaskan Tunku, Hussein, Razaleigh, Musa, Anwar, Badawi, Najib, Mahathir (diri sendiri), Anwar (sudah kena dua kali), … dan pencabar siapa lagi dalam masa yang akan datang?

Dari Pusat Tasik 17

Bak Pauh Dilayang

Layangan di langit yang tinggi,
melayang di cahaya mentari;
Kertasnya berkilat kuning kemasan,
walaupun tidak ditandakan tangan.

Pemimpin massa sama gadis tercinta,
tarikan berdasarkan wajah di mata;
Pipinya cantik bak pauh dilayang,
pepatah samakan hasrat dan wayang.

Biar wajahnya cerah kuning kemerahan,
barulah hati pengundi tertawan
dan ditahan
