"maka kujadikan diriku pungutib sagala remah remah daripada sagala taman orang orang yang bijaksana, umpama, sa'ekor lubah yang munghimpunkan madu daripada berbagei bagei junis bunga bungaan yang harum baunya" From Taman Mingatauan 1848, p. 2

HARAM SCARUM (1987) by Salleh Ben Joned

Drinking, gambling, lying, bribery, 
— and all kinds of whoring too —
all of them perfectly okay.
And to hog it all’s not taboo.

All sins of course; but nothing really
a trip to the Holy of Hollies 
cannot fix for Eternity:
God bless man’s enterprise.

But that — that’s different, untouchable! 
We’re Moslems, and terribly Malay.
Some things are just unmentionable;
the rest are ok if we pray.

We’ll go the whole hog if we must 
to redeem our pride as a race; 
like the giddy hare in a rut,
we’ll halal everything save that.

It’s hogwash what those swines say: 
That we Bumis mount pig-a-back,
Like a pack of boars hacking our way
Up the slippery slope of success.

Our one dislike we have to keep 
to preserve our identity;
so long as we hate pigs and pray, 
we’ll remain Moslem and Malay.

Bahagia - itu yang lebih penting untuk kita menari dan mencapai maknanya.
