A Call For Fellow Filipinos - Poem by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY
A CALL FOR FELLOW FILIPINOS
By. Melvin Banggollay
Tabuk city, Kalinga
As a Filipino in blood, culture and spirit
hoping for a governments that merit
the genuine principle of clean government
I call everyone to help in its establishment.
Let us be united to defend the idealism
of the administration to end shabunism
along with its advocacy to end criminality
and graft and corruption in this country.
The presidents desires to stop criminality
including the menace of the drug industry
and the haunting cancer of graft and corruption
hampering the growth of our beloved nation.
Let us not not be complacent to let history
define the turmoil our nation to face its destiny
but with courage and defiance let us be
United defending the honor of our sovereignty.
I call upon those who believed in democracy
to rally behind against imperialistic tendency
of our own people desiring only political posterity
but against the welfare of the Filipino majority.
I also urges those who believe in clean government
to show your support to this administrations intent
to end criminality, drug trade and corruption
with the ultimate aim to serve with the best intentions
Let us also be united to call for a genuine reconciliation
by allowing the late strongman, Ferdinand E. Marcos
to be buried in the libingan ng mga bayani
Pagkat karapat dapat dahil naging pinuno ng lahi.
