Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Walking leisurely along Grove avenue

Past the noble gates of Plato

O’ my new academic den

I breezed by coffee shops

To my left and to my right

I seem to be transported

To famed Bohemia of halcyon days

There to sip coffee and chat

With minds of bedazzling brilliance

Shaped thoughts that changed

Old worlds broken down by innovations

In like vein this Little Bohemia

Offers thee myriads

Of cafes and novelty shops

Of bars and pastry foundries

They can make one stay here

Glued like thick gel leaving marks

Of genius and galores of ideas

Basketball

Held in villages

As ours in Lumangbayan

Are much a part

Of zestful life

In the islands

Banters and catchcalls

Crowds and uniforms

Perfumed and foul smells

We squeeze ourselves

Like salami thumping

Jumping in limitless joy

Fuming madly when not satiated

To our oldies

A curse the basketball league is

For the zillion decibels of noise

Shatter their pretentious ears

But for the youth

And those feeling youthful

They are

A blessing and feast

Catharsis for the dense energies

Truly fun and tons of coke besides

Declaring summer had come

My country has always been a den of thieves and crooks

A den of poll cheaters likewise who’d feign no mercy

In the use of guns, goons, gold, glitches

 

Our polls for over a century have been

Through ballots and manual counting of hands

Even the dead were known to cast vote

While many occasions of vote buying

Spiced up later with ballot snatching

Peppered with hundreds of ambushed dead

Polling has become a cheap enterprise

Subject of guffaws of a million buffoons

 

Till finally this year 2010

Across the archipelago our eyes were gladdened

As poll machines appeared at last in the precints

Where our folks cast their votes like enthused kids

Gleefully amazed finally at the rapid result

Churning numbers as fast as grand rapids

Finally we’d say justice had come to our polls

As the numbers we can now believably say

Is truthful enough to merit our golden valuation

From up Himalayas’ etheric space

With Light beings attending in sessions

Called forth by World Teachers we

Are as salts of the Earth

 

Brought forth to bring Light Above

Unto eager souls awaiting release

From encumbrances with ignoble Ignorance

Veils upon their eyes concealing truths

 

Likewise now am I decided anew

To re-enter the university’s august halls

There to rendezvous with sublime starseeds

Harbingers of the noblest goal of nirvana

 

A commitment to the Holy Cause

I’m coming back to sublime academia

Impeccable den of truth and wisdom

I’ve come back regained in strength

Will and inspiration fro the Heavens

They came again as before to toss me querries

Interviewer and camera men to spice

Their grins as huge as the moon’s smiles

From big television network nesteld

By program named Kapuso to boot

Accompanied by quaffs of pineapple juice

My ears I lent to them sharp as blade

They then asked me to build thoughts

In shape to explicate Brasilia’s invasion

Of Manila’s culture spaces—

Fashion, music, food, endorsers

For which I replied:

We are sponges all to porous

Retaining what we are as we absorb

Brasilia’s symbol constructs and aesthetics

For we relish them in sublime appreciation

This was how we Pinoys came to be

Soaring high like the Philippine eagle

Filled with values and images borrowed

Yet fulfilled and towering as our spirit

So shall we be yet in the morrows

It is back and surely back indeed

This gigantic helix-like portal

To in-betwixt space across worlds

Sleeping in repose for eons

Closed it was by clashing forces

Benign as well as malevolent

Cut off from its nerve ending

Above my beloved Philippines

If but to undercut those enthused flyers

Of starships and patrol crafts both

Yes repose twas for eons long

Long forgotten or so it seems

Till waken it did like a gigantic lantern

Filled with Light on all sides

Dazzling Light to beacon flyers all

In humble 2008 did it spark with life anew

Led by galactic warriors a-flying patrols

Like many bees clustered on a hive

They guarded the Holy Spiral as it descended

Back to it umbilical cord zone

Never again to close down

Is it now transporting ships and souls alike

Here now cometh to reinforce the Plan

Of raising us all to higher climes

Upon the bustling of cocks enthused
