MANILA IMPERIALISM?

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Then was I a leader among teachers
In the 90s decade it came this tall task
For which called was I to make rounds
Of mentors ‘round the country to glee
That aura of mine inspires them to reveree

Then came this news conference in Bacolod
Where I was introduced as man from Manila
Then exclaimed the tv man to shame
That I am agent of Manila imperialism cold!

Shocked as I was and infuriated likewise
Did I regain control of my composure
I was a leader among teachers across the land
Not a local agent of Manila nor its fens

Yet surely there are those who build discord
From petty and asinine viewpoints they breed
Unable to see the world in larger clime
They will perish with shame and dirty slime

[Philippines, 15 November 2010]

CANINE DELICACY NO MORE

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

As young a tot I was so supple and innocent
Did I copiously follow my oldies who slaughtered
Dogs for delicacy that they quaffed with liquor

Such was then tradition that withstood no perdition
For its own commission would shoot up one’s esteem
As one who can stand along with the tribes of Pinoys

And so twas my delicacy as a young man thereafter
Who’d make fallows to task and earn my keep
Excellent to quaff with brandy dog meat was
That burned one to brims of libidinal desires to consume

By late 80s my flights of fantasy for canine meat
Was scoffed by my own conscience
No more to eat a friendly pet I finally decided

Till law comes to ban the slaughter and eating
Of canine delicacy that’s now proscribed
The calling of innate wisdom has come to bear at last
For which we followed conscience in daily acts

MASCOTA

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

The day has just begun.
Here in my studio flat the air reverbs
With notes of dance music from disco fame
Preparing my psyche for the gym time waitin’.

From here I’m transported back to the 60s.
A tot I was then watching Ybanag culture
From my curious yet ignorant social focals.
There to wallow a bit as my Grandpa struts
The humble sala of our rising new home
Displaying with gusto the music of mascota
Dances with my Grandma to savor eternity
Of merriment and glowful likings for cultural spree
Of our locality we call by thee: Ybanag.

WORLD’S TALLEST TOWER

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

I now could hardly wait for season’s ending
That the erecting theme park of Pagcor fame be done
In Pasay’s reclaimed shores tis rising in repose
To house the world’s tallest tower beyond Eiffel’s

Of children and families comin’ later to frolic and fun
Will they likewise scale the ladders of the wondrous tower
Exhilarating in panoramic sights below they’d enchant
In unforgettable beauty beholden to beatitudes

A year or two shall this great tower come to stand
Beacon of grandeur of our nation standing tall
Amid storms and stress of decades come to test
Majestic tower done as trophy to skyline fold

So let it come this wondrous tower-to-be
Up there shall I to celebrate my next birthdays
Twill be testament to our soulful majesty
To stay up there and be a grand tapestry

REST THEE CARABAO

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

From childhood to young adulthood I feasted myself
With sights of carabaos at work in fields of planters

Like willful servant the carabao has been unto us
Humble Filipinos of an aegis of rustic past

Came forth new times and tractors filled the lands
Where carabaos once tread the fields till wee hours

Gradually did carabaos came to rest at last
No more to shame nor lame for slave tasks

So let it be the new mark of unfolding times
That carabaos be our true friends sit in glory
