Ode To The Blacksmith - Poem by Gilbert Pangyarihan

Fernando Poe, Jr.,
The Blacksmith of folklore,
Great Leveler actor,
A son our country bore,
Forged in the Supreme Core
Of Sierra Madre’s tor.
You are cast to the fore
With few a foe so sore.
Live what you’re living for!
Do what you did before!
Lift your sword, rise and soar!
Light up the distant shore!
Open the furnace door!
O save us from the gore!
Be the Blacksmith once more!
