[In a truly unprecedented move, Philippine rebel leader NUR MISUARI, Chairman of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF), emerged at the Malacañang Palace on November 3, 2016 upon the invitation of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte. In his speech delivered on the very podium to which was the attached the PRESIDENTIAL SEAL of the Republic of the Philippines (and with Pres. Duterte’s express permission), Misuari solemnly pledged his vow to talk PEACE and end the more than 4 decades of Muslim rebellion aimed at secession and of putting up a separate and independent Muslim state. Pres. Duterte, in an epoch-making step has extended his hand of PEACE unto THREE (3) significant rebel groups in the Philippines: the Communist REDS led by Jose Ma. Sison, the MNLF of Nur Misuari and another Muslim group, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) led by Al-Hadj Murad Ibrahim.]
In an unprecedented blitz, and quick succession…
President Duterte has made his firm actuation;
Of seeking peace for our beloved nation,
To thwart civil strife and even secession.
An unprecedented move, once again;
Truce was reached with the communist Reds;
And now ’tis the turn for the Moro rebs,
Nur Misuari has emerged, speaking out all his pain.
No RP President has reached this apex,
To talk about peace in a maelstrom, nay a vortex;
With three groups of avid & bellicose rebels,
DU30 deserves a Nobel and a clang of reverberating peals!
And even in his dealing with CHINA,
To resolve this issue on the Scarborough shoal;
DU30 is calm and does not go banana,
To insure that the talks don’t drown into a hole.
For if PH goes by the Western “dictation”,
It surely would lead to a bloody resolution;
For CHINA has the might & has taken possession…
The strife could even lead to a war of attrition.
An old saying indeed is truly momentous,
In a battle with a strong wind, both surely would lose;
And a bright sunny beam would virtually be the boss,
Warming up a man, the overcoat will be tossed.
When peace reigns supreme in our land,
It will be jubilation, indeed a sweet elan;
Prosperity will come in, zooming like a MARTIN*,
Jovial quietude will reign, overwhelming all the din.
But critics will say…what about the DRUG MENACE?
For DU30, they say..has allowed the killing craze;
Well — PEACE..it’s what we want…in a measure of jest…
The DRUG LORDS & PUSHERS will just rest in peace.
[*The reference to MARTIN speaks actually about the new-fangled invention of the Martin Aircraft Company which is called a Martin Jetpack. This product depicts modernity and ultra-state-of-the-art development (which could perhaps happen thereupon in the Philippines when the country attains wholesome PEACE). More on the MARTIN…it’s the product of the finest craftsmanship and the most advanced technology in producing an exceptional mode of air transport that successfully combines style and elegance with the ultimate in practical applications. Whether your mission is to save human lives, solve a commercial problem or merely to avoid traffic getting to your favorite restaurant, the Martin Jetpack allows you the freedom to achieve your goals no matter how challenging the environment.The Martin Jetpack is unique in that it can be flown both manned, unmanned or as part of a “mule train” of Jetpacks and its fly by wire technology ensures that it is relatively easy to operate whether as a pilot or using remote control. Its advanced safety features, including a ballistic parachute that can open as low as six meters above the ground, ensure you are able to concentrate on the task at hand or enjoy the flight with the knowledge that the Jetpack has your safety covered.It actually has been invariably used in the movies starting from James Bond’s THUNDERBALL.]
