HOW THE EFFIN U
Will I fight for my right
Go out and spearhead a strike
For strike is my right—
Heard that verbalized from Mouths of Bobets
A line merely shallow yet so profound
If alone I strike
What gain will I might
Against the Circle of Lords holding strings amongst
But my rights!
Our rights!
What of them!
From bills to acts, laws to rights
All stolen
Laws written to suppress our gain—wonderfully implemented
Laws written solely for laborer's gain—gracefully written
O, makers... O, writers
You thought of them so good
Contemplated, hence written
And writing is just your sole objective
Never should you care if implemented or not
To fight for them, to have them grand is just so troublesome
But never should we forget:
In collective unity born of empowered individual supremacy
No lords should we fear
No odds should we not conquer
No oppressor should we not condemn

P.S.
Critique not, you critic
For this poem is not the utterness of things I did

About the author. Wawo F. Punzalan, the unfettered poet from the streets of Angeles in Pampanga is formally known as Juan Karlo Flores Punzalan. He finds psychedelic "noises" (as his experimental fraternity would define) as music. Delights in nights of beer and discussion with progressives twice his age. He plans on publishing, sooner or later, his Titless book (an anthology of poems, scribbles and short stories with a bonus introduction to his envisioned film Evolution, name it with abnormalcy).
