I’d Rather

deterte

My President is foul-mouthed
In his speech he lacks tact

But he is not corrupt
I’d rather have a foul-mouthed leader
Than somebody who will foul-up my nation’s coffer

He is foul-mouthed
But he’s not an oligarch

We are not a democracy
But an oligarchy

Governed by the few mighty and wealthy
The nation remains in poverty

I’d rather have a Duterte… careless in his speech
Than be led again  by a member of the elite

I’d rather have a leader whose language is nasty
Than a somebody with a flip-flopping nationality

Would you rather have a ventriloquist dummy
Controlled by the TRAPOS  pushing her candidacy?

Would you rather have a thief, a weak oligarch or a dummy?
I’d rather have a Duterte, foul-mouthed he may be

About HARDPEN

Teacher-Writer Hardpen is my nom de plume. My real name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question, "Why do you write?" I don't write for rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories or essays, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. The happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my rewards. When I teach, I don't work but I play. The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy. Proud to be me! Proud to be a FILIPINO! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
