OFW - Overseas Filipino Workers

Oh If Double You  
What can you do?    
Your salary is coming      
Time to pay the due     
You're away from home             
In a country not your own 
Sacrifices are done      
Just to take money home
Your hard earned money               
Is a sweet jar of honey                                                       
Made kins so happy
Leaving you almost empty
Then they call you a hero         
But the help is almost zero
Better go back to your barrio
And plant corn and potato.

    This is great. I really love this. Can you give me your biography? I just need it from our assignment. Please. Pinoy naman ako eh.
