Red Signature - Poem by Edgar Rendon Eslit

Looming thunder’s about to erupt by mouth
Not once but twice in secluded gloom

Salient fear couching in saucer’s blood bath
The fighting spirit’s unfolding in one soul to form

Latent vengeance engulfing life’s aftermath
So valiant lamenting nemeses to doom

Dare no devil, better justice must be fought
Here, mighty scepter’s eyes everyone must conform

Now, the echo of yesteryear’s maladies spread forth
Gasping and sucking were theirs for men in uniform

Detractors blindfolding justice; vying as if their cohort
For a defenseless subject their whims stood as to inform

The last thread of life now’s not in your hand but on both
Divulge the scalded truth they lawlessly hid as their own

Said, this courage maybe barred when they brought death
But the sympathy of this pen shall set my fallen justice bloom

[Long live the legacies of the Philippine Journalists whose courage remain incorruptible.]
