Dishonored - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr
Gone were the days of broken promises
let those wounds be healed in due time
over the years the guilt will be haunting
ringing like bell when the act is repeated
in shattering the hope you offered everyone
at the end such pretensions benefit no one.
Man of words was your ancestor
an icon for the masses not an actor
come a time when you walk his steps
at first you made it good but slipped
people wonder why a refined lady
acts strongly for hope yet inflicted malady
God knows what the Filipinos citizenry need
all they ask for is stability for children's sake
like having stable jobs to survive this life.
And why are you still doing it?
raising gangs noted for corruption
re-grouping them to stage one action
on the day of the nationwide election
you speak for the people as though
on this day will be another promise.
