Voices - Poem by Pacita Labayen Aliermo

Voices, voices, from left and right
So urgent, demanding with might
Resounding from north and south
East and west, of bombastic mouth. Loud, angry, ugly arguments
Persuading for your sentiments
Recalling past hatreds so hot
Revulsions start breaking your heart. Voices, voices, ego flattering
Fantasy of beauty alluring
Buy this, buy that, the voices say
Urge to spellbound before payday. Whispers from prints and media
Stir your souls to wander astray
Sounds and images bombard the brain
Humble man no longer the same.
