the gapanese invasion is nigh!

"pinakamaganda ka nga sa buong kapuluan, pero latina na naman ang magwawagi ng korona at sash sa miss world! racism ba ito? lupasay!"

masked rider

Toothache, testpapers, unanswered texts
Seemed trivial against writer’s block
That rendered tapes winding at extra speed.
Enemies in masquerade left essays undone;
Visions oozed from the pen’s ink
To Gapan.
Temperate moods opposed the
Raging tempest,
Colds lingered in bed,
Earnest for the kindred
Of the visage that launched
A thousand vessels.
The ruthlessness of the private wars
Long prevailed in the midst
Of throbbing all against
Blissful obliviousness;
Rivulets steadily streamed down
Unpainted chinawares.
Why choose to stay
When I dare now throw hands
In sweet defeat?
Crushed to the marrow,
I vainly wait for snows to drift
In summertime.
Heading home but never quite—
The morning bus—
I always miss the ride.
