May Tatlong Bampira

May tatlong bampirang magkakabarkada,
Isang gabi’y nagpasyang magkita-kita.
Nang kwentuha’y matapos, nagutom sila
Sa suking restaurant nagpasyang magpunta.

Naunang umorder bampirang mayaman
Wika sa waiter, “Fresh cow’s blood ako’y bigyan,
Puso ng baka’y ihawin, extra-rare lang,
Ako’y gutom na kaya’t iyong bilisan.”

Sumunod naman bampirang ordinaryo –
“Dinuguang baboy nga… meron ba kayo?”
Half-cooked lang! For my drinks? Ah… dugo ng pato!
Tumango ang waiter bilang tugon nito.

Nang dukhang bampira sa waiter tumingin
Wika nito’y, “Hot water lang ang sa akin,
Kasi…heto… may napulot akong napkin,
Kaya’t tsaa na lang ang aking iinumin.

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!
