THE VERY ROCKY ROAD (Happy Father’s Day 2021)

Happy Father’s Day!!!

The Very Rocky Road

The Very Rocky Road

wow pare heavy! iyan ang aking naging kataga
nasapol ako Durian at nakadalawang mega tasa
makapigil hininga Butterscotch ang bawat eksena
may isang galon kung mababaw ang iyong luha

The Road by Comac Mc Carthy ito’y isang nobela
taong 2006 nalathala at 2009 ginawan ng pelikula
isang fiction at hindi makatotohanang storya
malalim na scoop at emosyon ang ipinaMocha

post­-apocalyptic ang kanyang heavy drama
may isang batang lalaki at ang kanyang ama
gagawin lahat ng ama mailigtas lamang siya
kabaliwan kagutuman at kasakiman ang bawat eksena

maihahantulad ang tema ng Double Dutch na storya
sa The Walking Dead halos pareho ng pinupuntirya
sina Viggo at Andrew ang mga pangunahing bida
sila’y Cookies and Cream at kapwa mabubuting ama

survival of the fittest ang tanging Macapuno Langka
matira ang matibay sa mundong Coffeee Crumble na
kinuwestiyon din ang pananampalataya sa Diyos
mapapahawak ka sa dibdib O bawal ang may nerbyos

bumukas muli ang freezer at “hmmm …” ang nasabi ni Shawie
si Viggo ay namatay sa bandang huli sa sakit na tb
kabilin­-bilinan sa kanyang Mango anak siya’y manatili
sa paglalakbay patungong silangan at nandun ang mabubuti

heartbreaking at haunting ang pelikulang Fruit Salad na malamig
nagkabrain freeze ako’t ang Buco Salad sa ulo’y pumipintig
ang pelikulang ito’y di nababagay sa aking Ube Royal na hilig
ako’y parang ice cream na natunaw sa aking Quezo Real na daigdig

Ama Ang Haligi, Katha ni Dorie Reyes Polo

Araw ng mga Tatay, “Mahal Kong Ama.”

Ama ang haligi ng isang tahanan

S’ya rin ang idolo, naming mga anak

Tiyaga at pagod, paghahanapbuhay

Hirap ang tiniis, gusto ko’y ibigay

Salita ng Ama sa anak na mahal

Napakahalaga at tinatandaan

Katulad ay batas na di sinusuway,

Pagkat ang pangaral, tandang Ika’y mahal

Ang halik ng Ama sa noo ng anak

Pabulong na dampi, pag-ibig na tapat

Yakap na mahigpit, ramdam ay kay sarap,

Takot at pangamba’y napapawing lahat

Ama ko tanging Ikaw ang aking SUPERMAN

Sa aking tagumpay, ikaw ang hagdanan

Salamat sa Diyos at Ika’y nariyan

Sa pag-aarugang, aking naranasan

Ang araw na ito, ay para sa Iyo

Dapat mong malaman Ikaw ay mahal ko

Ipinagmamalaki kahit na kanino

Igagalang kita ng buong puso ko
