From Thairath, December 31, 2019
Title: Goodbye last year
Poem: 365 days passed. The only happiness is the King’s coronation and marriage. It is still beautiful in our memory. On the other hand, there were many problems the whole year, such as marijuana, toxic [things], declining economy, bad society, solving injustice and struggling in parliament.
Thongchai Na Nakorn. Composer.
[Refers to the significant incidents occurring during 2019 in Thailand. The poem highlights the royal coronation and marriage as the happiest things for Thai people last year while others, including political problems and the economic slowdown, caused dissatisfaction in the people.]
