***NATION OF SERVANTS? ''


A foreign joke
bleeds Filipino's heart
when Chip Tsao H.K. Columnist
spits out of his own description
among Filipina maids as servants of
Hongkong nation
and the same mail-order brides
ordered jokingly by American actor Alec Baldwin

in either racist angle or not
either in bad taste or not
this are not a mere jokes
and expect no joking reaction

open your eyes
and be not the servants
of undenial by evading the reality
from me

this is real
yes, hongkong is our maids OFW masters
at least our modern heroes not traited as slaves
and same with our foreign-dollar-grooms Pinay hunters
as part of cybertech modern trends
