A Little Boy's Prayer

One day, in a galaxy far, far away, in a land that is ridden with corruption, a little boy says a prayer before going to bed...

Dear Lord,
I pray for papa, mama and I-oh yes, not forgetting Sayang, my faithful doggie-here. Please help us to keep our little farm with our few chickens and vegetables in the ulu* here. It is the only home we ever have. Please make the big man in a big, big helicopter go away. He wants papa and mama to give his big master our home for money. Papa and mama say they will not sell it away. They want Sayang and I to have something one day. Now the big man says, "We give you big money now. If we tell our friend, the judge, to let us take the land from you, we will get it so easily and you will get very, very little money!"

STOP corruption before it's too late! It greedily eats away at the soul of the nation, destroying it forever in the end.
