A contrary, an anomaly

Added on by Ridzki.

Forgive me if I'm often contrary, especially at festival like today. When all others are seated. I get up.

When others rise and clap. I sit.

When others in lively discussion. I sleep.

When others set pigeon free. I scatter paddy.

Others have attained independence. Not me.

Forgive me if I'm often contrary. I do it only to remind.

-A poetry I found while reading Mat Som by Lat, a Malaysian cartoonist. Anybody could tell me who's the original writer of the poet?
