Mohamed Latiff notes that “[o]ne should not simply write about ‘beautiful’ things, but should seek to correct the wrongs that one sees in society.” His poems tackle the social issues facing the Malay community in Singapore and he strongly believes in the power of literature to combat against racial discrimination in Singapore. This has led to friend and fellow Malay writer S.N. Masuri calling Mohamed Latiff a “poet of protest” and “an angry young man.” His poetry collection Segumpal api selingkar pelangi: puisi-puisi pilihan 1967–1977 (translated as A Crackle of Flames. A Circle of Rainbows: Selected Poems 1967-1977) features gruesome imagery such as blood and pus to convey the harsh realities of discrimination and mistreatment of the poor, especially the Malay community. In spite of his work attempting to highlight the oppression of the Malay community, he is also critical of the community’s pace of progress in keeping up with globalisation.
