Cayó’y Caiiñgat

clownNalalapit na ang  malaking palabas
Wika nga’y “The circus show is about to start!”
Isang palabas na halalan ang tawag
The clowns are everywhere “Cayo’y Caiiñgat”

Dati-rati’y ‘di ka nila pinapansin
Ngayo’y bigla na lang ika’y kukumustahin
Biglang naging “concerned” kayo’y pupulungin
Suporta sa halalan sa inyo’y hihingin

Lahat ng tao sa daa’y kakamayan
Lamay sa bawat sulok ay pinupuntahan
Tambay ay bibigyan ng alak at pulutan
Pantaya sa bingo si manang ay bibigyan

Sa ganyang paraan botante’y liligawan
Parang nang-uuto’t gusto kang suhulan
Ganyan kababa kung botante ay tignan
Tingin sa iyo’y uto-utong bayaran

Panunuhol ng payaso sana’y tanggihan
H’wag tanggapin alok na limang-daan
‘di ganyan kamura iyong karangalan
H’wag mong hayaang pagkatao’y yurakan

“Caiiñgat” sa kandidatong lumalapit
Baka siya’y payasong kung ngumiti’y pilit
Nagkukunwaring sa iyo’y may malasakit
“Caiiñgat” kayo’t h’wag magpapagamit

H’wag ng dagdagan payaso sa gobyerno
Kay dami na nila sa Kongreso’t Senado
Maglingkod sa baya’y marangal na mandato
Seryosohin sana gagawing pagboto

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, and essays, when I do research, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. I don't write for cash incentives, "likes," and "praises." I would be thankful if I'll have them but the happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my real rewards. Is teaching difficult? No! 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!
