Pambalot sana ng tinapa’t dilis

SANA’Y sumapin lang itong pagmumukha Sa tinapa’t dilis na para sa dukha…Natikman mo sana ang lansa’t mantikaNahimod sana ng mukha mong bilasa.Nangakasupalpal sa TV at radyoAng maskara ninyo’t pati na aninoHinihimok kami na kayo’y ibotoSa ganyang gawain kami’y ginagago…Kung sa pahayagan kayo ay nagsaadNg mga pangako’t iba pang boladas—Nakinabang sana sa mga pahayagPati na ang puwit, mayroong pamunas.Anong gantimpala aming makakamitKung sa radyo’t TV kayo humihirit?Kung pahina sana’y naging pamparikitNg aming ilawan sa gabing pusikit.Bahala na kayong lapatan ng sumasagitsit na himig at sumusulak na ngitngit ang mga naunang taludtod.

Any whit of wariness that crackpots would crack can hardly be appreciated by crackpots. Why, I would have voted for you had you taken the desperation to make a bid in the senatorial derby. You didn’t. You weren’t that desperate enough.…
