In honor of Tan Cheng Lock, Ee Tiang Hong has written this :

At both ends of the street
Signplates bear the name
Of an illustrious son.

His only son, too, every Baba knows,
Deserves a token somewhere,
And in their memory.

In this very street
In the lavish study
Of the most famous house

Were made and sealed
A people's fortunes,
And their fate.
Heeren Street
