GREENS AND SMOG CO-EXIST

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Calming on a famed bar-resto
In the equally famed Eagle’s Nest of Antipolo
Sippin’ a glass of iced tea to cool
My focals brooked no quarters to feast
On the verdance and panoramic vista
Spread around hills from where I seated
To my back a wall of rock nesting
Another famed restaurant in noble state

Twas a day so clear of clouds a-near
But there afar below the flatlands
O’ Marikina, Manila, Makati & metro spaces
Hover dark malignant shrouds of smog
Blanketing the big city as endowment from Hades
Foreboding deaths unto millions of folks
Whose lungs breath toxic air as free trade

Luck it is that lush surround is retained
Neutralizing Hades’ grave emissions a-clear
And great it is that this city I live anew
Perches Divine Mother as nature’s nurturer
A true shelter indeed from all maelstroms

JESUITS’ PLAGIARISTS

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

In the name of the Father (Jesuit Order)
Of the Son (students/constituencies)
And of the Holy Ghost (Jesuit fascism)
Amen.

If an alumnus Son is found to plagiarize
Kilometric lines of verbiage from famed denizens
Isn’t this a natural offshoot of the granite fact
That Father begets Son in his own image?
As any fascistic Father begets fascistic Sons
Likewise do plagiarizing Fathers
Beget plagiarizing Sons?

Can Jesuit schools indeed stand up as high esteemed
As atheneums of antiquity in the glory that was Greece?
Or it is more a mask that predatory pretenders don
Concealing thus the commissions of evil abominations
For weren’t the Jesuits those demonic assassins
Come to slaughter?
Those who depart from papal influence
Slayed by their idiotic blunder?

How many more will Jesuits subtly burn
To Hell those Herds of studes who to them turn
For sublime learning like famed Dr. Rizal?
How many more burnt at stake
In Jesuitical altars of ultimate power?
