BACK TO the point caught beautifully by my BUMmer matey DonPlayPuks in his latest BOOK Chapter 1 which I featured here YESTERDAY, when all my troubles seem'd so far away...with reference to the usage of that four letter word, YES that F WORD and other profanities.
I must CONFESS THAT for the past SIX MONTHS WHEN writing about 1MDB AND related happenings in NegaraKU, I have cursed in half-a-year more times THAN I HAVE EVER DONE IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!
"F***, BAST***, SH*T," and others I Won't wish to "pollute" My cyber space with, but express that SENTIMENT captured aptly in DPP"S paragraph ++++ This is what I would call ‘at a loss for words’ — and when you just have to say something but no words can fully describe how you feel, then ‘fuck’ is the only word you can use which will console you enough and make you feel you have expressed your anger and disgust in a most ‘appropriate’ manner. +++below.
Putting in context, I Quote:~~~
""In his now famous ‘Let’s Send Altantuya’s Murderers To Hell’ blog post of 25 April 2008, read by millions, RPK wrote:
“I had dinner with a few friends last night and on the way to the restaurant another good friend, Din Merican, phoned to fill me in on the details of Dr. Setev Shaariibuu’s press conference that was held earlier that day.
I listened as Din filled me in on what transpired and could not help but blurt out, “I am a father of two daughters. I can imagine what Shaariibuu must be feeling. Fucking assholess!”
“I have three daughters,” Din responded. “These people are animals, bloody animals. Fuck them! Fuck them!”

…I found it very difficult to hold back my tears as Din continued with his narration of what Dr Shaariibuu said at his press conference.
“Let’s bring these bastards down,” I told Din. “Let’s launch a ‘Justice for Altanatuya: restore Malaysia’s dignity’ campaign’ or something like that. These assholes must be sent to hell.”""
I often have writ some poems during the lovely POETIC MONTH of September almost every year since I started blogging on the Ides of March 2005. BUt I break tradition this woeful year because the body is willing, but thee spirit is NOT AT rest. WHen a writer tries to pen meaningful lines taht a poem dictates, he must be at peace with himself, spiriually and mentally. WHat moved DPP TO write his TOur de Force, as remarked by Clare Rewcastle Brown, is THAT STATE OF MIND WHEN the SOUL IS NOT AT PEACE BECAUSE JUSTICE HAD NOT BEEN DONE TO THE MONGOLIAN NATIONAL NAMED "ALTANTUYA" while she was in MALaysia about ten years ago.
AT this juncture, let me reproduce what CLAre BRown write about DPP'S ebook of 900pages:~~
