Sorry Wisely

Sorry Wisely!
Talo ka nanaman.

Paano ka ba naman mananalo…
eh di ka qualified.

Ano?

Ah college graduate ka kamo!
Eh ano naman… kahit ba may PhD ka pa.
Ang tanong eh – may datung ka ba?

Wala! Wala! Walang… DATUNG
Kaya di ka qualified.

Ano?
Bakit kaylangan ng datung?

Susme!
We’re you born yesterday?
Oh kaninang madaling araw lang.

Ha?
Malinis kamo record mo.
Who cares…?
Nobody… nobody but you.
Dahil ang tanong eh – “Meron ka bang datung?”

Ha? Handa ka kamong maglingkod.

Hindi pala dapat Wisely pangalan mo.
Mas bagay sa iyo ang pangalang engot.

Ang hanap ng botante…
hindi ang handang maglingkod
Ang hanap nila’y – ang handang magbayad.

Pera-pera ang labanan tsong.
Gets mo na?

Ha?
Bakit ganun?
Aba malay ko.
Itanong mo kaya sa lolo mong panot.

Kaya… sorry na lang Wisely.
Better luck next time.

Try mo kaya mag-budots.
Baka makakuha ka next time ng –
mahigit labing-apat na milyong boto.

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!
