Look at them Papa,
They appear dignified,
listen to them,
With intelligent words and quotes of academic excellence,
very persuasive indeed,
yet too many filipinos are dying in extreme poverty,
naked souls swept by the storm of sheer ignorance.
Never trust politicians whom you love admire most,
whom inspired you as a youth,
your consciousness will be raped by their deceptions,
your pockets without you knowing it will be robbed by their witty tricks,
by their wicked lies,
they are the modern political magicians,
with the spell of scholastic credibilities,
at the end of the day,
under the constitution,
every single cent within the national treasury
will be gone.
It is sad,
very very mind-blowing,
justice can be bought like a chocolate bar,
corruption is everywhere like a rose,
and hunger is forever like a diamond.
