Pinyo poem hits back at monarchy debate critics – Bangkok Post, March 23, 2013
For one man, burn the whole building,
chase and burn that man in hate.
Burn one pigeon as an offering.
One sole wish: to topple the state.
Cruelly scheme, agenda hidden,
His name used as a killing tool.
Who loves him: for real, or to fool?
– asks Tob Jote Thailand, hence.
We light the fire to spark insight.
Ignorance blows it out and slander,
crushes, pushes, shoves with all its might.
Or is this Thailand’s answer?
Dead while alive, yet still hunted, chased.
Shameful Thailand has no brave ones.
If you don’t stand up to fight ignorance,
from now on don’t ever raise your head.
Sitting still, I hear a news anchor say
that last night a small pigeon
was shot at every which way,
in the midst of Thailand’s conflict, fallen.
