Boxer From Far East (Philippines) - Poem by Manonton Dalan

big time guys from island came to town
singing “london bridge is falling down”
it was so quick it only lasted two rounds
add one more to his collection of crowns

i look around the ring pinoys neighborhood
with smile, “i thought we are poor, i was told”
i was wrong, yes, it’s just me, i can’t afford
but whatever it is, outcome is ”i feel so good”

even though” i’m not a big fan of boxing”
somewhere within me is really rejoicing
being part of that unique culture from east
where for sometime created “one of the best”
