Sharing Senile Poetry

in The Ink Welllast month (edited)

Early morning and evening
You are chasing new news
You tell the truth
You fight anyone who dares to oppose
For the sake of this land that you love

You are so eagerly awaited and loved
You are so feared and dream of thugs
You deliver the news about months of death without stopping
You liken the history of grandmother's flawless chocolate thief
You talk about corruption endlessly
You even convey about the monkey dating with great enthusiasm

Maybe maybe their prayers are now accepted by God
You're getting senile
You're being scared
You become shameless
You're a whore for this country

Maybe the curse has made you senile
You pretended to forget
You are silent in a thousand languages
You're like a dictator of power
You're like a buffalo stuck its nose

Until I believe you have become senile
You didn't tell me about that bastard
Don't fight you shut up for that cypress
There is not the usual discussion for months when there is a delay
I'm sure the Cypreneur has reached her prayer
Yes, just one prayer makes the messenger senile

Until he doesn't know the camera anymore
Don't know the writing anymore
Don't know the news source anymore
Then forget that this country is being humiliated by civilists
Because the news anchor has become senile

Bahasa Indonesia

Berpagi-pagi dan petang
Engkau kejar kabar baru
Kausampaikan kebenaran
Kau lawan siapaapun yang berani menentang
Demi negeri ini yang kau cintai

Kau begitu ditunggu dan dicintai
Kau begitu ditakuti dan mimpi beruk para begundal
Kau sampaikan kabar tentang kematian berbulan bulan tanpa henti
Kau samapiakan riwayat nenek pencuri coklat tanpa cela
Kau wiawatkan tentang korupsi tanpa henti-henti
Bahkan tentang monyet pacaran kau sampaikan dengan penuh semangat

Mungkin mungkin doa mereka kini diterima Tuhan
Kau jadi pikun
Kau jadi penakut
Kau jadi tak tahu malu
Kau jadi pelacur untuk negeri ini

Mungkin kutukan itu telah membuatmu pikun
Kau pura-pura lupa
Kau diam seribu bahasa
Kau seperti didekte kuasa
Kau seperti kerbau dicucuk hidungnya

Sampai aku yakin kau memang telah pikun
Tak kau beritakan tentang si penista itu
Tak melawan kau diam demi sipenista itu
Tak ada diskusi yang biasa berbulan bila ada kekakangan
Ku yakin sipenista telah sampai doanya
Ya, doa nya satu saja pikunkan si pembawa berita

Hingga dia tak kenal lagi kamera
Tak kenal lagi tulisan
Tak kenal lagi sumber berita
Lalu lupa bahwa negeri ini sedang dinista oleh sipenista
Karena sipembawa berita telah pikun
