Seriously Libel : Just Some Thoughts

I close my eyes
So I can not see
I close my ears
So I can not hear
I shut my mouth
So I can not speak
I pinch my nose
So I can not smell
The awful fragrance
This government tries to emit
I peel my skin
So I can not feel
Thyself falling away
Thyself torn apart
We were supposed to head onwards
But how?
If we're looking backwards
But not forward
They said they didn't like dictatorship
But why?Why is it that we don't have freedom
The freedom to speak
The freedom to tell who you are
The freedom to tell what you are
You are all arrogant bastards
You of who speak democracy
Brought tyranny to us
You who opposed martial law
Brought it back
Is this really the way?
The way you wanted to lead us
The "tuwid na daan" you were talking about
Maybe you are just dumbfounded
Or maybe you are just dumb?
I rate you
2 out of 10
At least you got 2
Not 1

Pls do comment.

    Thanks for all the warm welcomes for this libelous Poem. I wrote this on the verge when the Phil. is trying to apply the cyber crime law which is very unjust to all of the Filipinos. Good Day people

    From the blood that's spilled will bare flowers and fruits for new warriors to fight for something new original poignant.
