Bolero

Gabi noon nang umuwi si mang Teban
Itong si Bebang sa pinto nakaabang
At nang asawa’y pumasok sa pintuan
Pinadapo’y hampas sa kanyang bumbunan.

Sa nakita’y natawa anak na si Juan
Amang napaluhod siya’y sinimangutan
At nang makatayo lumapit kay Bebang
At siya’y tinanong, “Bakit ngayon ka lang?”

“Darling… sorry ako kasi’y nagovertaym.”
“Hoy… hoy kalbo luma na ang tugtuging ‘yan
Kung ‘di OT… traffic ang idadahilan
Gasgas na ang mga palusot mong ‘yan.”

Alam mo ba Bebang na A-B-C-D ka,
Sa totoo lang eh E-F-G-H ka pa.
Ika’y I-J-K, maniwala ka sana.”
Si Bebang ay natahimik… takang-taka.

A – as in AWESOME… B… Bebang you’re a BEAUTY,
Bilang asawa ika’y napakabuti,
C – you’re CHARMING, taglay mong ganda ay matindi,
D – so DAZZLING, wala na akong masabi.

“Matandang kalbo ako’y tigilan mo na,
Ika’y diyan magaling… sa pambobola.”
Ngunit halatang si Bebang… kinilig na,
Habang si Juan sa gilid… tawa nang tawa.

“E – EXCITING, oh kay sarap mong kasama,
F – FAITHFUL, sa akin Bebang ay tapat ka,
G – I’m GLAD ika’y aking napangasawa,
H – You’re so HOT Bebang, sa kuwarto’y tara na.”

Hetong si Juan, sa nangyari’y takang-taka
Animo’y na-hypnotize ang kanyang ina
Ina’y sinundan ang nagbubunying ama
Silid nila’y magdamag na nakasara.

Kinabukasan nang sila’y nagsigising
Naisipan ni Juan na ama’y tanungin –
“I-J-K… ano po ang ibig sabihin?”
Bulong ni Teban … “I’M JUST KIDDING.”
