The Art of not Giving Offense

by Zaharan Razak on Friday, February 25, 2011 at 5:32pm

In the land of the blind, it is not smart to tell you are sighted,

In the Third Reich, it was not smart to tell you were a Jew,

In a dog pack, the smart thing to do is keep your tail between your legs,

In Tripoli, it is not a good idea to talk at a tangent

From any group you happen to be with, just blend in;

If you happen to be in Taliban country, dress appropriately,

If you are among Calibans, don't quote Shakespeare,

Least not from The Tempest;

Among nuts, don't say you're a screw,

Faced with a Jakarta stadium crowd,

Don't say I'm Malaysian, loud and proud,

Remember, one wrong wong does not make all wongs wrong,

So don't go shoot your mouth and rant,

At FB not smart to fart outside your pants

And to many a wong gives offense

Invite to a teh tarik and make amends.
