Vote Buying - Poem by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY

by Melvin banggollay

V-ote buying is a common strategy
undertaken by politicians of no credibility
of which many took it as an opportunity
to force voters to lost their sovereignty.

O-portunista ang tawag sa mga gahaman
lalo na sa mga mandarayang politisyan
sa hangaring maluklok sa kapangyarihan
at magnakaw sa kaban ng ating bayan.

T-ake that politician's money with all humility
but don't vote for that person's candidacy
for such act is an insult to our sovereignty
and an offense to our own right and dignity.

E-wan ko ba kung bakit may mga kandidato
na gustong manalo kahit sila'y manloko
at di alintana magnakaw pag nasa pwesto
sa halip na manglingkod nang tapat at totoo.

S-tand firm to fight any political curruption
in any manner without fear or hesitation
to keep this nation out of political oblivion
orchestrated by political machination
