FUN RHYME SERIES 333: IF YOU WANT A BETTER PHILIPPINES, LET’S STOP THE FB BASHING AND NOT ACT LIKE PHILISTINES:

[Bashers at FaceBook are so many nowadays. But they are purportedly advocating their right to criticize and their right to freedom of expression. But ooops, they are also luring the military into a mutiny, a putsch, a coup d’etat…WOW, amidst this corona virus pandemic, they are sowing divisiveness and civil strife. ARE THESE POLITICAL ANIMALS, FILIPINOS?]

 

 

Let’s not be undisciplined and most of all, of being “PASAWAY”…

If you want to really raise our FLAG “at IWAGAYWAY”;

Walang maitutulong yang “hate campaign” ninyo laban sa ating PRESIDENTE – –

Matagal-tagal na rin naman at mukhang wala naman sa inyo’y tunay na KUMAKAMPI!

Dapat nating ipagdasal ang atin pong PANGULO…

Dahil wala naman iba pa na sa ating bansa’y NANGUNGULO;

Umusal tayo ng dasal at hindi po sana BATIKOS  – –

Ang hirap nga kasi, kayo’y puro KUSKOS-BALUNGOS!

Iinit lang ang ulo at pakiramdam NINYO…

Sasabog pati ang mga butse ninyo at pusong pang-KARINYO;

Maghunos dili na nga, mga uslak KAYO – –

Hindi naman talaga ninyo makukumbinsi, ang ARMY, ang PNP at si Secretary AÑO!

Nanunulsol pa nga kayo, mag-KUDETA sa GOBYERNO…

Para kayong banyaga, hindi ba kayo FILIPINO?;

Akala ko’y PINILI na at PININO pa KAYO – –

Mukhang magaspang pa rin ang mga mukha at diskarte  NINYO!

Hindi naman kasi kayo si Cardinal SIN, si CORY, RAMOS at ENRILE…

Sobra naman kayong ambisyoso kung ang isip nyo nga ay GANIRE;

Huwag nyo ring isiping ang “majority” ay panig sa INYO – –

Kung majority talaga kayo eh di dapat KUDETA na ngayon TAYO!

Ipinaglalaban ninyo nang sukdulan, wika ay FREEDOM…

Naku eh giyera na nga ang ating KINALALAGYAN;

Isantabi po muna natin yang mga FREEDOM, FREEDOM – –

Mga buhay po ng mga tao ang siya nating munang PANGALAGAAN!

Mistulang giyera ang nangyayari po sa ating bansang GILIW…

Kalaba’y lulan sa hangin , na may hihip at ALIWIW;

Ituon natin ang labanang ito against the corona VIRUS, ‘IGAN – –

Para kahit na paano’y masabi na kayo naman pala’y puro GENIUS NAMAN!

BOW!!!!

FUN RHYME SERIES 332: SOME FUN/PUN ON BADMINTON’s ORIGINS & DAWN:

 

BADMINTON-FUN-PUN-PHOTO

[We have religiously observed social distancing in our diminished badminton plays (from the usual 3 times a week,to just a mere Sunday play). Just as has been advised by medical experts, we have to do exercise to keep us all fit and covid-free.]

 

BATTLEDORE was the original name of this cock and racquet GAME…

And as we’re now all involved in a war, it’s just almost the SAME;

In badminton we’re focused on hitting a thing that’s FLYING- –

Now, scientists are immersed at “hitting” a cure on a virus that’s RAMPAGING!

In our quorum of four, and who all know how to SCORE…

We’ve someone from the health sector, police sector and much MORE- –

The health rep though not on infectious DISEASE-

Gives out however sort of medical bulletins that surely would not CEASE!

And just seeing the police officer in our QUORUM…

Will quickly remind us, though we’re in a playing FORUM;

That we still have to observe all those quarantine  PROTOCOL- –

Or else, we might get it with a “YANTOK” that will bring us much “BUKOL”!

BADMINTON is the second most played sports in the WORLD…

It’s being played by 220 million aficionados regularly, since it was UNFURLED;

It was invented in India, 2000 years AGO- –

Modern badminton burst out in UK plugged by the Duke of Beaufort who has an intriguing MOTTO!

And the Duke’s motto is: “Mutare vel timere SPERNO”…

Which appears timely in our present covid “INFERNO”;

It means among others ,NOT TO FEAR- –

Indeed, this bitchy virus must be hit and roasted on a SPEAR!

The covid scourge is not only UNPRECEDENTED…

It’s unforeseen, unimaginable and has rattled every nation’s PRESIDENT;

But as in badminton and in tennis, when the score is NAUGHT- –

It marks the period of fun and of LOVE, as it would bring about the news that the virus has been CAUGHT…

For with ZERO (aka LOVE ) infections therefore, it would mean that our prayers have all been answered by Our LORD up ABOVE and we’ll all be protected from this scourge FOREVER and EVER MORE!!!!

FUN RHYME BLOG 331: LOVE, LIFE AND LIVING

 

 

LOVE IS TRULY MYSTERIOUS…

IT SOMETIMES WOULD EVEN BE ATROCIOUS;

BUT LIFE HAS TO BE ACCORDED PRIORITY,

AND OF COURSE, ONE’S OWN FAMILY!

 

shane-vim-wedding-family-photo

 

IF LOVING WOULD BE INTOXICATING…

SOMETIMES, WOULD EVEN BE SUFFOCATING;

IT HAS TO BE HALTED AND STOPPED,

FOR IN LIFE, IT’S NOT NICE TO BE SUBJECT OF DIVINE REBUFF!

 

wine-puday-photo

 

BUT LOVING MUST ALSO BE FORGIVING…

FOR HATRED IS NOT GOOD IN LIFE AND LIVING;

FRIENDSHIP IS THE BEST THING EVER,

FRIENDS MUST NEVER LOSE THEIR LUSTER!

 

FORGIVENESS

 

IF LOVING NEEDS TO BE STOPPED…

HAUNTED BY CONSCIENCE AND GOD’S REBUFF;

FRIENDSHIP COULD BE THE BEST ALTERNATIVE,

IT COULD EVEN UNTO THE PAIN, BE A REAL PALLIATIVE!

GOD WANTS US ALL TO BE HAPPY…

GIVE UP RESENTMENT AS IT’S ALL FOLLY;

GIVE UP SADNESS AND BECOME MORE HOPEFUL,

NEVER EVER BE SOME KIND OF VENGEFUL!

FOR IN LIFE, THERE’S A TOMORROW…

THINK OF HOPE AND CAST ALL SORROW;

FOR IF DESTINY IS INDEED THE PATH,

WE RAISE TO GOD OUR HOPES AND THROW AWAY THE WRATH!

FUN RHYME BLOG 330: HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILSON aka SON

 

wilson-bday2

[Birthday celebrant WILSON T YOUNG, is shown here cradling his fave APO, RICO.The parallelism I wrote about in this BLOG between US President Woodrow Wilson and my brother Wilson does not only pertain to GOLF as their common sports. What is alike or parallel too is with respect to Pres. WOODROW WILSON’s raising the standards of PRINCETON UNIVERSITY when he became Princeton’s Prexy. My brother WILSON,on the other hand, being the Vice-Chairman of UERMMMC which is acronym for UNIVERSITY OF THE EAST RAMON MAGSAYSAY MEMORIAL MEDICAL CENTER has since his ascendancy to the post, initiated programs to raise the standards of UERMMMC not only as a hospital but also as a medical educational institution.]

 

 

As a LIBRAN born on October 18, NINETEEN FIFTY-SIX…

He’s so ORGANIZED  — a trait that would avoid him getting into a FIX!

He’s even DIPLOMATIC and DETAILS-ORIENTED;

Those personality DESCRIPTORS are truly HIGH-RATED!

 

 

  

Having been named after US President WOODROW WILSON,

They indeed share some parallels that’s worth to MENTION…

The 28th US President was a GOLFER TOO,

As Princeton University Prexy, he raised its standards… so TRUE!

 

woodrow-wilson-golf  

 

Back to my brother Wilson’s horoscope as a LIBRAN,

He’s DEVOTED and PASSIONATE, that’s in the matter of ROMANCE…

He’s so SOCIABLE too and is focused on RESULT…

He’s so truly CONFIDENT sans any FAULT!

 

 

 

As a LIBRAN, he SPEAKS UP and SPEAKS OUT!

Does not beat around the BUSH…he truly was, as a toddler, a bit STOUT…

Some would even say that he’s AGGRESSIVE as WELL;

That has made him UNIQUE, that’s truly so SWELL!

 

 

‘Tis said that he takes the driver’s seat with AUTHORITY…

He knows too that his LIFE and  that of his KIN is his own RESPONSIBILITY… 

He would not  truly settle for anything LESS…

An incomparable destination is his aim…as he eyes for the BEST!

 

wilson-young

  

He’s well-groomed as he keeps himself FIT,

That could be seen in the gait of his walk that’s quite FANTASTIC…

He truly walks with undeniable steps, which could turn many HEADS;

That’s when he does his morning BRISK WALKS near the MEADS!

 

wilson-uermmci

   

Please don’t think that this BLOG is an EXAGGERATION…

‘Tis nice to have these things to be part of the  MENTION;

And as a Chinese Zodiac health advisory to SON…

He should try to avoid worry for just no REASON!

 

wilson-woody

 

Primarily… and as I am neither a HOROSCOPIST nor a SKYGAZER…

He’s our clan’s BENEVOLENT SON,  PA, GRANDPA, HUBBY, UNCLE  and BROTHER…

He has reached achievements that are so COMMENDABLE…

He has received awards that are truly so LAUDABLE!

FUN RHYME SERIES 329: BADMINTON JOKES AND JOYS – PART 8

 

 

badminton-ylf-all

[A group  photo taken during one of our badminton tourneys at the YOUNG BADMINTON COURT.]

 

 

Huwag pong kalilimutan na meron tayong USAPAN…

Lalaro ng badminton Martes at Huwebes, walang LILIBAN;

Kailangan nating lahat  ito, pero mas mukhang ako ang TAMPOK,

Tuwina kong kailangan para nga mapalis ang konting LUNGKOT!

 

 

Si  LAWRENCE dapat ay pigilan ang PAG-GIGIL…

Para naman ang laro tuloy-tuloy at hindi pulos na TITIGIL;

Ingatan ang pag-SERVE at huwag sanang MAGMADALI,

Kapag may magmamadali, ang daliri po’y  ITATALI!

 

 

Huwag din sana si JOVY na malimit na MAGLULUNDAG…

Dahil ang shuttlecock ay maaring KUMAWAG;

Baka nga’t hindi pa itong matamaan nang SWAK,

O di nga ba magiging tunay na MASAKLAP!

 

 

 

Si ROSE na dating sa hampasan ay GUMALING…

Parang noong Martes na laro, si JOVY’y NAPAILING;

Naglaho yata ang dating galing ni RHODORA ROA,

Puro lumalampas sa raketa ang may pakpak na BOLA!

 

 

 

At si ELLA HADAP naman ay patuloy na PAGIGING  EKSPERTO…

Sa service ng BOLA mukhang TUNAY NA “CONSISTENTO”;

 Pero ang problema ni ELLA ay kapag mataas ang HAMPAS,

Kelangan yatang dalhin ang “step ladder” para sya’y TUMAAS!

 

 

Itong si FE at si ALMER naman, yaong kanilang TAMBALAN….

Nag-mukhang buwaya itong kanyang simpatikong KATIPAN;

Si ALMER na animo’y gutom na gutom sa HAMPASAN,

Para bagang sa DOUBLES na laro, lahat ng tira’y sya ang PAPASAN!

 

Uy, lalaro pala ang PELOTA KING, na si VIC CRUZ, NGAYON…

Mukhang nag secret-training at bumili ng shorts na may TAPON;

Kaya ang POTOTOY niya’y FULLY SHIELDED and COVERED…CHOS KO DAY,

Even if the shuttlecock makes a BULL’S EYE, the POTOTOY  will never say DIE!

[At the BADMINTON COURT, with some of my lawyers and staff plus the son of our utility woman and cook, LAWRENCE, with his  Mom FE seated to his left.]

 

I need all of your utmost COOPERATION…

Not just within our walls and in our Law Office OPERATION;

I am now actually bruised and nursing a CONDITION,

Some kind of ache brought by a love-lost EMOTION!

father-blanco

 

In fact, my Claretian spiritual director lauded ME…

Even congratulated me for being brave to be FREE;

Though the emotions may have deadened my MORAL  SENSES,

Even made me carefree, thinking those joys will be ENDLESS!

 

sleep-bus-station-jun-revs

 

Have to make myself to be  busy TRULY…

As those memories that have gone indeed, so LOVELY;

Would always haunt and make me feel SAD,

And badminton would turn sadness into GLAD!

 

badminton-tournament

 

Let’s make our regular plays CONSISTENT…

That’s why I’ll always be very INSISTENT;

For our badminton plays would de-stress ME,

Bring out the toxins and make us HAPPY!

exercise now, 3D rendering, isolated grunge yellow road sign

 

Let’s bring out all of those ENDORPHINS…

Cause ENDORPHINS relieve stress, those like painful PINS;

And brings an analgesic effect and some kind of HIGH,

Thus, I can bid those heartaches and pains, a quick GOODBYE!

 

\

But ROSE’s confession about her love-life made me WORRY…

As it took her to forget after a year, that’s some kind of TARRY;

So if I really have to put up with this ache for an actual  YEAR,

Perhaps through JOVY, who’s HEARTBEAT habitué at QC,  can find me a new DEAR!

 

 

But my Law batch mate VIC,  has some better SUGGESTION…

He said it would be better to just  control one’s EMOTION;

So, it’s best according to him to just imprison and constrict one’s POTOTOY,

By using  super-tight shorts in our games, one’s POTOTOY will go ALAHOY!

FUN RHYME SERIES 327: BADMINTON JOKES AND JOYS – PART 6

 

[Among my lawyers in the YOUNG LAW FIRM who has now embraced badminton as his regular sports is ATTORNEY JOVITO “JOVY” GAMBOL who may seem to have been addicted to the game already. At first, he was so hesitant to play the game as he was previously focused in the game of basketball; feeling perhaps that badminton is not a sports for a macho-man like him.]

 

Mamayang hapon sa ating badminton…

Ingatan lamang po ang inyong pag talon-talon;

Wag masyadong mataas ang inyo pong lundag,

Baka ika’y bumagsak at mag kakakawag-kawag!

JOVY-ROSE-PHOTO

Dapat limpiyahin natin ang bawat tira…

Lalo na kung “smash” ang siyang inyong puntirya;

Baka sa pagtalon ay malampasan ang bola,

Hahampasin ay hangin at ika’y aalagwa!

jovy-hbd(2)

 

Pagbutihan lalo ang mga tirang “drop shot”…

Lalo na kung ikaw ay ma-“put under the spot”;

Huwag palolobohin ang mga tirang “drop shot”,

Dahil ito ay siguradong ma-“smash”, score ng kalaba’y sure na jackpot!

jovy-hbd(1)

ROLL CALL muna tayo para malaman kung ilan…

Yaong lalaro dapat walang liliban;

Halos isang daang hakbang lang tayo mula sa “court”,

Sayang naman talaga kung wala kayong “retort”!

 

Hoy! ROLL CALL na tayo, ilan ba ang lalaro…

Si Lawrence ba ay darating pagkatapos ng kanyang turo;

Baka may lakad ito kasama ang kanyang friends,

At mag-blow out pa, maglibre rin ng nuts and drinks!

 

Pero itong si Atty Jovy na halos ay na-“ADDICT”…

Siguradong darating kahit malayo ang TRIP;

Syempre ganado siyang bumaba ang “sugar” nya,

“Sugar-daddy” na nga daw ang tawag sa kanya!
