Yet Another Dark Chapter in Philippine History

 

(On top of earning “Sick Man of Asia” title)

 

By Roberto Bernardo

 

R econversion, Retraction, these flip-flopping

Moves of a Church-State separatist on dying

Still are imputed to one, the best of our race:

Might as well call this deist Son of a Whore.

 

The slow-fading theocracy and faith that killed him,

Hand-in-hand with unreading indifferent People

Produced a top hero confusedly praised and taught;

Didn't he hope to save them from brutish ignorance?

 

Also from amoral indolence not just physical?

Instead to such Church-State darkened themes

Masses and their heads he had hoped to redeem

Have uncaringly nursed their line-toeing dance.

 

They're all over not just online these detractors

And blinded venerators deaf to his core's cries;

These are the covert malefactors still dominant:

Trapos, priests, professors, historians, leaders.

 

Brownnosers they are to the faith-powers that reign,

Nosing them all out are his Knights and Descendants

Supportive, mum or neutral on the base Retraction;

His core’s cries they badly need to know & defend. # # #
