[My fraternity brother and BIRTHDAY BOY, the DEBONAIR and DASHING DICKSON P. HERMOSO is shown in this photo truly IRIDISCENT, so bright, colorful and gleaming. Brod DICKSON’s life is truly colorful as he has served our country as a BEMEDALLED military officer whose last assignment was as Commanding Officer of the 7th Infantry Battalion stationed in Pikit, Cotabato. Now following his retirement and as a true-blue civilian, he is with the OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENTIAL ASSISTANT ON THE PEACE PROCESS (“OPAPP”) with the rank of ASSISTANT SECRETARY aspiring much, just like all of us peace-loving Filipinos, and working so diligently indeed to bring PEACE to the whole of the Philippine archipelago. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY DEAR BROD DICKSON!!!!]
He was the FIRST PREXY of the PI OMICRON INTERNATIONAL ASSO.,
A fraternity brod of mine who seemed to hate TOBACCO;
That’s what I’ve heard though my informant is SO SO…
But my impression is that he’s a booster of clean living…’tis TRUE!
As a TAUREAN he has a STRONG-WILLED ATTITUDE,
Though he acknowledges his limitations; that’s with EXACTITUDE…
He loves so much those QUANTITATIVE FACTS,
I’ve often heard him uttered a litany of helpful STATS!
Being a TAUREAN too, he prefers clear paths and RULES…
That has guided him in good stead, as he abhors too those drug MULES;
He’s one of those worthy President DUTERTE’s kin…
The rage against DRUGS may have rubbed off unto his moral SKIN!
A genuine bemedalled military OFFICER,
Who ascended the ladder and rose to the rank of FULL COLONEL;
But he truly is a sure and real GENTLEMAN,
He loves his country and for the PEACE PROCESS… he’s the MAN!
Anent our FRATERNITY, that’s the PI OMICRON—
He has instilled much LOYALTY, that’s the legacy of my cool BROD DICKSON;
He is impelled with much and PURE HUMILITY,
Am sure that ‘tis indeed his ardent CUP OF TEA!
And his diligence at work is NON-PAREIL,
He comes to work so early without FAIL;
But as he has been tapped to do wondrous MULTI-TASKING,
He skips, hops and travels like he’s into “SUPER FLASHING”…
One time he sort of NARRATED,
He was summoned to the PALACE but he could be DELAYED;
Using all his prowess, celerity and SWIFTNESS,
He drove, flew and popped at Malacañang, still with much FINESSE!
In guns and musketry, he truly is TOPNOTCH —
He skippered their OPAPP team with flair and much PIZZAZZ;
For which reason, they were proclaimed as the true CHAMPS,
He’s sure to hit the bull’s eye and catch them as though gaily dancing in STOMPS!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY BROD…THE DEBONAIR & DASHING DICKSON!!!
