Pantun, Talking Big

Cakap besar tetapi tidak bererti.

Legak Padang

Ribut semantan badai petang,
     Tegak bincang renong berisi;
Rebut jawatan pandai menang,
     Legak Padang omong Betawi.

Talking Big

The tree sways with storm and afternoon wind,
     For discussion, think of the meaning;
Fight for position, intending to win,
     Talking big with little meaning.

Pantun, It takes two to quarrel

Media sosial ada baik dan buruk. Misalnya, berita palsu termasuk cela-mencela.

Tepuk Tangan Sebelah

Orang dihina berasa sangat marah,
     Sibuk tahan maruah, takkan sunyi;
Serang cela media hangat darah,
     Tepuk tangan sebelah, takkan berbunyi.

Social media is good and bad. For example, fake news including insults.

When insulted, a person is furious,
     Busy rebuttals, as dignity is worth defending;
The blood boils as media attacks are serious,
     Needing two persons to keep quarreling.
