aida tanglao ANGGA KING keyang masakit a penandit sasaup ya pa king bangsa—Cory Aquino. Kabang dening miyasawa rugu misasangkanan la pang manako bilyun bilyun pera palako nala mu.

Ing keyang maging maybug kamatayan mangising pa karing makagising na, kabang ding magtudtud-tudturan pipilit dapa ing karela.

Magi ya kayang metung santa? Antimo'y Joan of Arc? Dapot ing Mabye Bayaning Pangulu Corazon C. Aquino makarate ya kesa king dalan makilaban; king lugal na pipanulwan e makalage, dapot masala yang akakit. E sasabi dapot masikan yang mararamdam. Ing tayimik nang gulisak king Balen nang kaluguran yang keyang panyagip at panatbus king Bangsang nang Pilipinas.

Mayap lang sandata ding malinis at mabudning kapanwalan.
