Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

Rains fell ceaselessly the day

Before it arrived. Almost without

Warning its gusty winds slammed

Upon my apartment studio like huge

Tennis racket walloping windows

Walls, streets, trees and all.

 

Tis my first taste

Of mighty Typhon’s wrath

Here where it passeth: my new home

Walloping winds before night fall

Gone before breakfast time.

 

Electricity and water a-non

Pathetic state I was consigned to.

I could have invited majestic Typhon

To an engaging coffee chat

Over coffee, egg and toasts.

If lands were cracked as face of Terra whacked

Thermometer’s gauge flak up as hellish boor

Denying waters sipped by giant drinkers

To children they can’t fathom the hydro sippers

 

Yet such calamitous state we call by child’s name

Naming it upon blameless ones who drive the world

With sonorous laughter smiles as gaiety won

Puzzled likewise are fowls and herds for such name

Likewise are all the fishes that dyin’ in vain

Embittered are swines and bees a-buzzing vines

For waterless moment none is left to sweat

 

Such is the sweet revenge of innocence lamed

By bottomless greed of tycoons gentry claimed

Such sweet avenge by Mama Nature for the child

For innocence destroyed by evil lords reviled

 

So let there be as many such sweet revenge

It teaches us to love Divine Mama’s womb creates

Guffaws of a comic bard for overlords’ helplessness

So let it come till oligarchs’ days are gone

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Warm is the day of summer.

The city’s drenched with sweat

Much more for humans

Sweats abound as unwanted flies

On the surface of sticky skin

Sticky is the summer’s day.

 

Warm yet blessed is the summer’s day.

The hot sun indeed bakes the skin a-gruel

Yet so does it burn all malignant germs

They quiver like it were their last

Winter, on a summer’s day

The signs of sickness shy away.

 

The body is a sturdy rock

Unreached by echoes of ailments

Only echoes of joy a-fleeting on a summer’s day.
