On Relationship Among Men

DEVELOPING RELATIONSHIP AMONG MEN REGARDLESS OF RACE SHOULD BE LIKE BUILDING A FENCE MADE OF CONCRETE BLOCKS PILED OVER ONE ANOTHER TO REACH A DESIRED HEIGHT. RELATIONSHIP INVOLVES SACRIFICE FOR THE SAKE OF OTHERS WHO HAVE GOOD INTENTIONS. THE PILING OF BLOCKS MANIFESTS SACRIFICE….AND THE WILLINGNESS TO SACRIFICE MANIFESTS COOPERATION

The Trying Hard “Has-beens” and “Wannabes” of the Philippine Politics

The Trying Hard “Has-beens” and “Wannabes”

Of the Philippine Politics

By Apolinario Villalobos

 

The Philippine politics is hideously polluted by “has-beens” and “wannabes” who try to do anything, just anything to catch the attention of the media. What is revolting about these nincompoops is that, for the “has-beens”, they have none to prove their worth as elected officials, and for the incumbent “wannabes”, they pretend to be intelligent but in reality, are pea-brained who cannot even distinguish a criminal from a victim!

 

Some of the “has-beens” were boot-lickers of Marcos, and who served as agency heads while the rest were either senators or congressmen. And, of course, the “wannabes” are sitting congressmen and senators who try to impress the nation with their “views” on prevailing situations that just make them butts of joke. One of the incumbent senators is dubbed “Trilliling” an allusion that sounds like “Tililing” or crazy. The woman senator who does not deserve to be called “lady” is a “blabbermouth” who loves to look cute in front of TV cameras.

 

Then there’s the “has-been” elected highest official of the land who criticize Duterte as if, he was that competent during his time. It was during his term that government properties were sold left and right. He was suspected to have pocketed huge amount of commissions stashed in the banks of a small nation. They elude the probing eyes of their critics by shutting their mouth, especially, the wife, but the husband sometimes cannot help himself from puffing off smokes of irrelevant remarks.

 

Duterte, in his utmost honest gesture extended a hand for the sake of friendship, reconciliation and even a humble plea for assistance. But his calls fell on their deaf ears, so how can one blame the poor president for becoming harsh at times by bombarding his critics with biting retorts?

Marawi….Oh, Marawi!

Marawi…Oh, Marawi!

Ni Apolinario Villalobos

 

Marawi…Oh, Marawi!

Sa ‘yong sinapit, kami’y nakikidalamhati

Nagkagutay-gutay dahil sa mga nag-umpugang lakas

Kaya ngayon, animo ay kalansay na lamang ang mababakas.

 

Lunsod ng marangyang kultura

Kamaranawang niyayakap ay Islam

At ang iba naman ay ang Kristiyanismo

Subalit nagkakaunawaan kaya walang gulo.

 

Hindi nagpagapi sa mga Kastila

At kahit sa iba pang mga banyaga

Dugo ng mga magigiting ay dumanak –

Mga bayaning Maranaw, hindi mahahamak!

 

Nagsimula sa Gitnang Silangan

Adhikaing sa Marawi’y pinagpilitan

Islam nga kung ituring, pero di tanggap

Dahil sa karahasan nito na di mapaglingap.

 

Maute Group ang nagpasimula

Na sa lunsod ay unti-unting naglipana

At  nagpataranta sa mga naninirahan doon

Nagulat sa mga ratatat at dagundong ng kanyon!

 

Kalunos-lunos ang mga eksena

Dinig sa mga radyo at TV, lahat ay nakita

Na ikinagulat at nagpayanig sa mga Pilipino

Pangyayaring hindi inasahan, mistulang dilubyo!

 

Di pinansin kumalat na kuwento

Tungkol sa napansing kilos ng ibang tao

Marami ay dayo, naglipana sa buong lunsod

Na sa daloy ng pamumuhay sila’y nagpatianod.

 

Nang magkaroon ng perhuwisyo

At sa kapulisan ay dumagsa ang reklamo

Noon lang nalamang di tsismis ang kumalat

Dahil buong Marawi ay nasa loob na ng lambat

Kaya nang kapulisa’y magsikilos…huli na ang lahat!
