Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad published a poem earlier today, 22 March, which was titled 'New Culture'

In the 10-line poem, Mahathir made multiple references to the 'Malu Apa Bossku' campaign sparked by embattled former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak. 

Nonetheless, Najib's name was not mentioned in the poem.

The poem apparently took aim at Najib's multiple scandals, before 'encouraging' readers to steal in order to become a boss

The poem reads:

I steal. What is there to be ashamed of?
What more when I am your boss.
You do not have to be ashamed that your boss steals.
You can get a little of what has been stolen. 
Why be ashamed, my boss?
My race does not need to be ashamed.
The more that is stolen, the nobler it is.
To be called kleptocrat is a compliment.
Come my people, let us steal so that we can become a boss.

The Prime Minister's Facebook post of the poem has since gone viral

At the time of writing, the post has garnered over 670 shares and more than 2,000 comments.
