He wanted to remain ANONYMOUS,
But the GRATITUDE in me has to stay FOCUSED…
Will thank those who have PITCHED-IN,
BLOGS are IN, might even include them in my DAILY MATIN!
He TOO like ALPHA said he’s a PRIVATE PERSON,
Doesn’t want to be CYNOSURE either, like a LOVED PARSON;
My deal was that he will remain UNNAMED,
But am sure he has already reached some FAME!
In our UP Law days, he’s deemed as TOP of the CLASS—
That’s the evening section, it ain’t a bunch that’s CRASS;
Though we’re mostly busy WORKING,
At times, in quizzes the evening class becomes KING!
He has indeed grown in RICHES,
He’s even too much elegant in his TASTE;
An genuine and acknowledged collector of ART PIECES,
His school-boy complexioned face hasn’t shown much CREASES!
He was the favorite student of our Prof. RUBEN BALANE,
For when he recites, words gush out from his mouth APTLY;
And his answers would seem so phrased PRECISELY,
And the issue is grasped so exact, EXQUISITELY!
But as a friendly advice my dear BUDDY,
You have to lose weight…and I think, ABRUPTLY…
For you’d eventually look like the NUTTY PROFESSOR;
‘Tis elegantly HOLLYWOOD, but the aftermath could be DOUR!
I wish now to thank you for your DONATION,
As again my daughters are preparing for a COMPETITION;
It’s once more, the WORLD HIPHOP INTERNATIONAL CONTEST,
That would showcase the world’s dancers at their BEST!
With the experience that they have GAINED,
Our Philippine team, the LEGIT STATUS, I’m sure will pass the LANE;
And the GOLD MEDAL would not be so ELUSIVE,
I’d feel our Philippine team will become the DEFENDING CHAMPS’ PET PEEVE!
THANK YOU SO MUCH CLASSMATE!!!!
