Note: The image is reminiscent of the saying, 'nila setitik rosak susu sebelanga'
(translation: a drop of color taints the purity of a jar of milk) which is relevant in moral matters

Of exemplary
moral fiber, epitome
of honor for Man

A guiding light in
pursuit of a good cause as
expected in Man

Sadly the same is
not true of those immoral
with shady dealings
