Erle Frayne D. Argonza


Time was rustic climes covered all thy focals

As one would go around villages after villages

Towns after towns across provinces

Of a rustic rural Philippines


This once sleeping country had surely crossed

The Rubicon to prosperity

Conquering like a Dragon of east Asia

Bringing forth numerous icings to cakes

To celebrate its victories


Farmlands and fishing villages still abound

In towns and hamlets that sleep till now

Where comes our veggies, fruits, meats

Rice & delicacies, fishes & fowl

But malls, bazaars and commercial hubs

Mutate town per town and massive quanta

Idylls are a dwindling facts of life


Farewell rustic Philippines!

Thy memories shall ever linger in my memories

Alive with tapestries of adventures and learnings



[Philippines, 21 September 2010]

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

To serious thinkers an X unknown

is the sum of financial technocrats

and foreign debtors

but to the paupered lot

the sum means

more tasty diets consisting

of liver flukes

of ascaris

of tuberculosis

of kwashiorkor

of bronchopneumonia

of pinworms

of schistosomiasis

A sum of parasites

is always equal to parasites

and nothing less
