Your Paranoia Is As Good As Mine - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

They say that
this little mess in zamboanga is
a stage play written
by a man who has something better
for the future of our

it is scripted and rehearsed
and to make it appear real
some people have to play deaf
and blind and mute

and those unfortunate ones
do not have to play dead

they are
they have to die
and must be buried
at once

lest they will rise up from their graves
and speak
the truth, the whole truth,
and nothing but
the truth.
