Never Again

Yes, it should not happen, never again!
The Persona in Malacañang, loud & firm,
exorcising evil with the rule of the realm –
Guns & bayonets flashing the day’s omen
protesters rumbling with quickfire men
It should not happen, never again!
Devotees of the cross praying to wooden saints
Pedants drowning in letters of symptomatic pain
Ophans fearing to step into the schoolyard
El Caudillo’s shadow looming wide & large
It should not happen, never again!
They who cower like rats in dark basements
They who secretly pee in their rainbow pants
They who weep over their missing husbands
It should not happen, never again!
They whose genitals scream in electric grip
They whose brains spill out in bushes & streets
They whose manuscripts are burned by the Overman
It should not happen, never again!
But old tanks are rolling in Thailand
Amboys are replaying the old macho game
Generals are sneaking one in the people’s name
It should not happen, never again!
The Persona in Malacañang & the rule of realm
If He who hears is distantly in heaven
You & I should invent all possible ways & means
It should not happen, never again!
