Posts Tagged ‘madness’

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

With childlike wonderment

Jaws drop down to the ground

I often exude with innocence

And colossal enchantment

Upon sights of huge edifices

Laced with marvelous architecture

 

They overwhelm the Renaissance’s art

With genius and grandeur displayed

O’ creative wiz straight from Higher Space

Culling esthetics from invisible spheres

 

But now I begin to feel weary

Over so many megalithic edifices

Behind the surface I see

Megalomaniacs driven

By greed and powerlust

 

Madness could masquerade indeed

Akin to an enthused participant

Of Bacolod’s mascara festival

I wish I were a zoologist in the works

That I can fittingly label those species of spooks

Of political elites and broods of stinking punks

In scientific parlance brand them a la skunks

Lacking those credentials of a laboratory researcher

Allow me then to brand the spooks as one enthused

Layman who would lay his scalpels on those punks

And see where ends this poetic branding bunks

Now this Arroyo d’Gloria of the tropics’ land

Leaves her good office shaved of coffers’ fats

Nine years the Tropicana folks endured her mien

Her term thus called era d’ excursus corruptus

Let Gloria be homo excursus corruptus

Photocopied from greedy cronies d’Marcos

Upon her journey to the corridors of power

Her family plundered best as Empress Dowager

Intoxicated with enormous power a’ fascist she

Dreams endlessly of clinging on to presidency

Indeed an Empress Dowager born with tragic luck

To many enemies sits she now as sitting duck

Will Filipinas then be torn catastrophically asunder

As Cathay was upon Dowager’s heist of power?

Upon her tenure’s end did Cathay go to dogs

Will Filipinas then be sliced as juicy hotdogs?

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Fate could be embezzler and crook

If bribed it could be

‘Tis when one cuts his/her throat and snuffs

Out life as one cold stone.

Yet fate and life are holy lovers

Self, the blinding love

Inane would be the earth’s own twirling be

If this code wasn’t found.

This itch to knife the body, like

Fly that scans excrement

Will flee when reason for it shies away

When swatters swarm the heaps

That is when one has bridged the self

To the crafting of the world anew

Behold! The diadems in people’s hearts!

Await everyone’s countenance

Like cornfields that a day shan’t miss

Without showers gently sent

By pious clouds from heaven’s floors

Undone is the sizzling heat

And then no more will knifing the body

Ever cross the willful mind.

[Writ. 27 May 91, Cubao, Quezon City, M.Manila]
