There She Is – haiku

There she is. Crouching Behind a log. She’s waiting For fresh flesh dinner. Are we a tiger crouching? Or a deer grazing in the greenery…. Or both but with love?

My Goodness – headache to the max!

This below video clip by “The Law” was sent by a friend. We’ve never thought of how a rap group (vocal? band? what? never heard of “The Law”) could sing a negative song, a set of negative lyrics about two women (Maia & Meichan of Duo Maia) who truly achieve very high position in Indonesia music world.
