Prometheus Unbound

I shall never exchange my fetters for slavish servility.
’Tis better to be chained to the rock than be bound to the service of Zeus.

--Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound


Mars shall glow tonight,
Artemis is out of sight.
Rust in the twilight sky
Colors a bloodshot eye,
Or shall I say that dust
Sunders the sleep of the just?

Hold fast to the gift of fire!
I am rage! I am wrath! I am ire!
The vulture sits on my rock,
Licks at the chains that mock
Emancipation’s breath,
Reeks of death, death, death.

Death shall not unclench me.
I am earth, wind, and sea!
Kisses bestow on the brave
That defy the damp of the grave
And strike the chill hand of
Death with the flaming sword of love.

Orion stirs. The vulture
Retreats from the hard, pure
Thrust of the spark that burns,
Unbounds, departs, returns
To pluck out of death’s fist
A god who dared to resist.


--Jose F. Lacaba

i cant say anything good about hitler. i am not a fan of marcos pero maajo man sauna, si marcos ray buaya. karon perte nang daghanang buaya. daghan kaajong corrupt. daghan ug apan si duterte. he likens himself to hitler. unya daghang COLLATERAL DAMAGE sa ijang drug war. hasta mga bata ma angin. pero ug dili ni buhaton ni digong, wa nay paglaum ang pilipinas. grabe na ang drug problem. dugay na kong nangampanya against drugs . in my own little way, i am backing up sports programs in our town. every year the JESUS ANQUILERO CHESS TOURNAMENT in honor of my late friend is held at the maribojoc gym.

i pray for pres. duterte. w/ all his gaffes, i think he is on the right track
