SAXIFRAGE (MARCH 10, 2010)
Bibislacan mu la
ring mangatibe
mangasias
a tipac ning batu

Cuculate, mangalsut la
caring balang gatla
caring balang gasgas

ding amut mung macapasno
lalaso
caring sesesen dang caplas

Quing babo ra, mamucadcad
sasalingalngal ing banglu
da ring talulut mung

mamatna, babatyo qng aslag
teterac
maquiyalung qng anging banayad.

Nuan ca caring sabla.
Ala nacu sanang dapat panayan.
Ala na sang aliwang dapat pang pacamalan

Sayang
Sayang mu pin at sayang

quing aliwang batu
carin ca ngeni macatanam.

About the author. Oliver Carlos was born and grew up in the town of San Luis, Pampanga. He studied AB Political Science at the University of the East in Manila, but did not manage to finish it, not because of some difficulties, but rather because of his love of his country. He was kicked out of school because he spent most of his time in the streets with other nationalist youths, fighting against the rotten political system. He chose to stay in other people's houses and studied in the hinterlands with the poor farmers. In doing so, he met his future better half and companion in life. Now, he is one of the OFWs, trying his luck in foreign places to make both ends meet and to get his family out of poverty. Amidst all this, he keeps on looking back at his beloved country, especially his province, Pampanga.
