Untuk Pemuda Millenial

Apa itu raga, kalau hanya diam saja

Malas gerak jadi alasan.

Apa itu akal, kalau dipendam tak dibagikan

Sibuk jadi alasan.

 

Lelah, katamu?

 

Apa kata pemuda-pemuda yang berdarah yang kembali ke tanah

pada masa invasi para bedebah yang serakah

rebut rempah-rempah

 

Jika mereka tanya apa jasamu untuk bangsa, hendak kau sahut apa?

 

Kerjamu hanya leha-leha!

 

—Bacot katamu?

Terserah!

 

Aku memang sedang marah!!

Hey, please-please-please

Hey, starry night,

what is that from your light,

brings tons of memories so bright

from here, million years our distance apart, but I’m missing you so right

As if the sun injects her light to my heart, jumping wild and wacky

like the iambic metre tolling my breast

DUM-di-DUM-di-DUM-di-DUM—

 

O Night,

Please, please, please

don’t fly away

O stars,

Please, please, please

Tell ’em, people I love, to feel

this funny feeling called happiness

Once, my friend said that “You can’t please everyone.”

But, I don’t know it doesn’t work for me. I always see Elmo as my role model in this field.

I don’t know who is Marat Safin, but he says

“I just want to make everyone happy.”

While Elmo has been successful in making everyone happy, I’m just.. trying, trying..

hard.

 

“Today we live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, by governments, by big corporations, by religious groups, political groups… So I ask, in my writing, What is real? Because unceasingly we are bombarded with pseudo-realities manufactured by very sophisticated people using very sophisticated electronic mechanisms. I do not distrust their motives; I distrust their power. They have a lot of it. And it is an astonishing power: that of creating whole universes, universes of the mind. I ought to know. I do the same thing.”
Philip K. Dick
