Tuesdays at Ipster Cafe: Amos, amos, why so famous?
by Joshua Ip
AMOS, Amos why so famous?
Now the whole world come and blame us
New York poster boy for free speech
Human rights all come and preach preach
Insult PM Iron Lady
Go to jail enough already
Offend all diverse constituents
Regardless race or religion
Troll so many, kena summon
Little boy versus the gahmen
But David damn irritating!

Sentenced ready finished doneded
Still dunno whose feelings wounded
Must be forum uncle write crap
Can’t control, give you one tight slap
Try to teach you lesson, fail
End up ownself go to jail
Martyr conscience funny fella
Self compare Gandhi Mandela
Sent to Woodbridge super frightened
(Out already, go asylum?)
People come support protest you
Then you claim bailor molest you
Tell the press you will say sorry
Laugh at them from lavatory
One time arrest not sufficient
One more time insult religion
Go to jail this sounds familiar
Qualify as conscience prisoner
Give up freedom days a few less
Secret scheme to go to US
Any pattern suits your jism
Change your thoughts like change your deh kor
Wan to siam NS just say lor
Shee shee shor shor coca cola
Wan to caogeng then say so lah
