For Rj... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

i perfectly understand it Rj
i know that the name of the child is always
Today

never tomorrow and so without so much fuss
i give as you ask
i ask no explanations i require no reasons

got no burden somehow
i am glad finally i have one

His name is Today
Never tomorrow

Oppress me, oppress me some more,
i need one, Today
I perfectly understand
Though foolish i may be
i give up
Sanity and Greed
and Logic

Ask me, i give in,
no reason, no nothing at all,
nothing in return,
no condition

If your Mama Rj
cannot understand all these,
let me,

If your Papa Rj
takes pride in his Discipline
I demand nothing Rj
Go on, take this and that
I am ready.
