I’ve been hearing a lot of horrid stuff about you lately.
Stuff that make me want to drink gin straight from my dog’s dish and smash that dish right across the room. Stuff that has made me pace the darkened halls of my home at night peering into my even darker soul, with my hair flying all over the place.
You’ve turned me into a deranged virago, Digong.
I hear you think it’s OK to give a hero’s burial to the aswang-manananggal,Ferdinand Marcos. You know, bury the fake hero right beside our REAL heroes.
The ones who really and truly earned their AUTHENTIC medals versus the disgusting one who made pukpok his own medals. Or baka binili sa Divi, buy one take 10.
They who lived such heartbreakingly simple lives.
I know this, Digong. My husband is a PMAer and some of our closest friends, our lifelong friends are soldiers. Soldiers, may I add, I am infinitely proud of and grateful to.
You think nothing of burying someone who clothed, fed, sheltered, educated his just-as-greedy spawns with money STOLEN from people he was supposed to serve, right next to heroes who begged, borrowed, worked-themselves to the bone to clothe, feed, shelter, educate their children.
Heroes who earned their living by honest sweat dripping off their brows. Right next to a MAGNANAKAW.
You want to bury someone who murdered thousands upon thousands of Filipinos right next to those who did all they could to protect Filipino lives.
Someone who singlehandedly brought down our beloved Inang Pilipinas right next to those who fought to preserve our country’s sovereignty.
You want to bury someone whose twin legacies are institutionalized corruption and generational poverty—-on sacred ground.
Are you drugs, Digong??
Di lang yon. Ang sweet sweet mo na rin sa mga mandarambong ng bayang sila Jojo FekkinBinay, Bong FokkinRevilla at Gloria FakkingArroyo.
Kala ko ba hate mo mga magnanakaw? Kala ko ba ayaw mo ng kriminal? Kala ko ba aayusin mo ang bansang Pilipinas?
Kala ko ba mataimtim ka na naniniwala sa hustisya?
Eh pano mo aayusin ang bansang Pilipinas kung yung mismong hustisya na sabi mong importanteng importante sayo ay yuyurakan mo?
Anong pinagkaiba mo sa mga bayaran na Justices na pumapanig sa mga mayayaman at makapangyarihan?
Yung mga nagbibigay ng pass para maka-attend ng graduation ng anak nya ang mandarambong na si Jinggoy?
O yung mga dothinds sa Supreme Court na nagpalaya sa oo-chang-enang Juan Ponce Enrile na yan dahil may sakit daw –eh mas malakas pa sa pahinanteng nag-Viagra ang gago?
So pala ang ibig mo atang sabihin– hindi ka mag-aatubiling kunin ang hustisya basta mga pepetiks petiks na drug addicts lang. Pero pag dating sa mga senatorial at presidential plunderers, kiss kiss hug hug lang?
Ok ka lang, Digong?
Binabalaan kita. Malapit na tayo mag-split.
