[It truly is IRONIC that after almost half of all Filipino voters (who voted for President Rodrigo Roa Duterte – about 40 % of the total votes) were so passionately in favor in the very beginning anent the drive against DRUGS (actually a chance to have some kind of messiah in the person of President Duterte, who mustered enough guts and courage to FIGHT the DRUG MENACE head-on) all hysteria and cries seem to be focused now on a seeming disavowal to this WAR AGAINST DRUGS cause. They say that the KILLINGS are so immorally outrageous…but DU30 forewarned them all that the WAR would really be BLOODY….The moralists are also raising the issue of EJK (i.e. acronym for EXTRA-JUDICIAL KILLINGS); when even a Senate Committee (still to be presented to the Senate’s plenary session for approval) has come with a report that the government is not at all involved in the so-called EJK. What is more, during the recent TRUMP-DU30 phone dialogue, US President-elect DONALD TRUMP virtually gave his THUMBS-UP to the way DU30 is fighting the Philippine WAR on DRUGS. President-elect TRUMP even was quoted as having said to DU30: “You are doing right in your fight against DRUGS. Keep it up!”-Pardon please the grammatical error in the caption of the bottom-photo; as the the same was copy-pasted from a gallery of photos (which I felt was very apt) from the INTERNET.]
Noong lumahok si Mayor DUTERTE,
Sa ating pambansang Presidential DERBY;
Di ba ang sabi niya’y siguradong magiging “BLOODY”,
Ang paglutas niya’t pagtigok ng mga DRUG TOUGHIE!
Eh sa ngayo’y sinusugpo’t nilulutas NA,
Katakot-takot naman ang “bla-bla-BLA”;
Animo’y mga ANGHEL na umabot sa NIRVANA,
Naging ultra-human rights advocates ang lahat sa KANILA!
Hoy! huwag po ninyong KALILIMUTAN,
Mahigit na labing-anim na MILYONG BOTO ng TANAN;
Ang naghalal kay Digong patungo sa MALACAÑAN,
Na syang pumalit dun sa lider na paka-ang-ka-ANG!
Yaong mga pabor sa pagtigok ng DRUG PERSONALITIES,
Ang sabi’y mabuti nang dugo nila ang dumilig at mag-“OOZE”;
Imbes na ang dugo ng mga KIDDIES at TEENIES,
Na naging biktima ng HOMICIDE-RAPE, pati DRUG OVERDOSE!
Hindi nga ba’t ganyan ang NANGYARI,
Sa MOA concert karatig ng Star CITY;
Batang-bata ang biktimang nag-try at UMISKOR,
Mukhang naging curious sa ECSTASY at GREEN AMOUR!
Buhay daw ng DRUG SUSPECT ay MAHALAGA,
Syempre mas mahalaga din ang buhay ng mga BIKTIMA;
Buhayin ang biktima, na syang pag-asa ng BAYAN,
Imbes na DRUG PUSHER na ang dulot! tiyak na KAMATAYAN!
Hindi po pwede ang KID GLOVES treatment DITO,
Ngiting aso lang ang mahihita sa DRUG LORD protector PIHO;
Ang gagaling pong magtago’t magsinungaling ng mga YAN,
Akala mo’y mga SANTO-SANTITA sa bayan ng BALAYAN!
Wala daw BIBLICAL SUPPORT ang pagtigok sa salot na ITO,
Aba’y di ba sa mga pahina ng LUMANG TESTAMENTO (sa EZEKIEL pito:labingTATLO);
Sa GALIT ng DIYOS, eh pagkitil ng buhay ang syang INENDORSO,
Kapag DROGA na ang iniidolo na nagdudulot sa tao… katerbang PERWISYO!
Sabi nga ng mga kontra sa salot na DROGA,
Ituring na lang nating isang PAG-PUPURGA;
Dapat at kelangang malinis ang LIPUNANA,
Lahat ng DURUGISTA’y ay dapat ibaon sa NAGDAAN.
Sa wari ng nakakaraming takot-na-TAKOT,
Ang salot na DROGA ang siyang NAGDUDULOT;
Nang lakas at bangis sa mga imbing DURUGISTA,
Upang pumatay, manggahasa at sumuway sa SAMPUNG UTOS na NALISTA!
Aniya ng iba, hindi pag-patay ang syang BAGAY,
Akala mo’y meron silang solusyong MAIBIBIGAY;
Eh… EXPERIENCE na ang nagpakita at NAGSABI,
HOPELESS na ang mga iyan, wala nang mga SILBI!
Kaya pinamagaling at “PAK GANERN” na MARAHIL,
TERROR at AWE ang ikintal halos ng buong SIIL;
Upang kabataan ay di ma-enganyo’t SUMUGAL,
Sa DROGANG animo’y pampalakas ng mga BURYONG; taong lubos na pong PAGAL!
Kaya ang mabuting payo namin sa INYO,
Kung BURYONG at PAGAL na ang katawan at isip NYO;
Tumawag palagian sa Poong MAYKAPAL,
At isaisip nang lubos ang kabutihan para sa nakararaming KINAPAL!
[*Pardon too the use of the phrase “FUN-RHYME”. There is no intention to make FUN of the subject of those drug-related KILLINGS. The phrase “FUN-RHYME” was earlier adopted as a new-fangled style to make out a unique type of BLOGS. The original purpose was that it would carry and actually refer to the FUN which is supposed to be generated/elicited by the sheer attempt to compose RHYMING lines and clump of words that could spark laughter, specifically words that bring HUMOR and some kind of JOCULAR intonation.]
I am a litigation lawyer in the Philippines and a graduate of the UP College of Law. I also hold an AB Economics degree from the University of the Philippines. While taking up Law at UP Diliman, I was working at the Tondo Foreshore Development Project which eventually became part of the National Housing Authority (NHA), where I started out as a Research Officer and eventually rose as Estate Manager. When the EDSA REVOLUTION happened, I resigned from the NHA in May 1986 and got employed as Legal Officer with Allied Banking Corporation's Legal and Collection Department, which got merged with the Philippine National Bank. In 1998, together with my UP Law classmate, the late Jaime G. Nagrampa, we put up a private law firm which originally was named NAGRAMPA & YOUNG Law Office and now, as THE YOUNG LAW FIRM.
