Words by Legco's Margaret Ng Ngoi-yee in 'Safeguard the rule of law, not socialism' (South China Morning Post, May 7) inspired the poem below. Ms Ng wrote: 'It seems strange that Hong Kong should pass a law to punish anyone with life imprisonment for unseating the socialist system of China . . . After all, the whole point of 'one country, two systems' and the Basic Law is to allow the capitalist system to continue in Hong Kong and to stop the socialist system at the border.' In response, Ashtonn-Alexander of Wan Chai penned this, addressed to the government: Past never ahead of us, Future will not sneak behind, Fate always with turning point, Present is a gift in our mind. Rush to create a past for the history, Looking for future in our own backyard, Speeding fate to meet destiny, Is putting a stop to present without any regard. People here are not wicked, They all love where they are, Just needing a bit more confidence, Not treating them as enemies as they never are.
