Marami na ngang nag LOG-IN sa GROUP CHAT…
Malamang talagang magdadaluhan ang LAHAT;
Syempre ako ay dadalo din para SIKAT,
Kasi OKEY na OKEY kung makapag-SELFIE ako kay PETER YAP at ka KAP!
Sa pagdalo ni KAP sa REUNION BASH;
Mayroon na ring ODE in ENGLISH na ILALABAS,
Though it is actually a WORK IN PROGRESS…
Ililimbag ko na dito para lahat magka-INTERES!
“ODE TO KAPITAN, DR. LUCIO TAN
“He was born in FUJIAN, CHINA in JULY of ‘THIRTY FOUR…
A Chinese province with abundant stories and legends of LORE;
FUJIAN is famous for its rare preservation of historical BUILDINGS,
That may have contributed unto KAPITAN’s fortunate & lucky UNDERPINNINGS!
“Our beloved KAPITAN’S story of rags-to-riches STATURE,
Was sensationalized by FORBES Magazine in one of its FEATURE;
It reported that he “worked as a janitor at a tobacco FACTORY…”
It added that “he mopped floors…”, just to pay his TUITION FEE!
“As a Cancer person, you are positively AWFUL;
For those born on July 17 are conclusively SUCCESSFUL,
Cancerian persons in love walk away from an argument in a HEARTBEAT…
Not because they’re timid but their aim is always to seek PEACE!
“You truly have a fecund and overactive IMAGINATION…
And your ideas would spring out in endless PARTURITION;
Building a brighter tomorrow is related to your ambitious INSTITUTION,
You’ve put up companies in seeming endless and quick SUCCESSION!
“And because of your ability to spend WISELY…
And the corresponding habit of religiously saving MONEY;
You have established a virtual commercial
That has aided our country towards modest PROSPERITY!
“You are a health conscious INDIVIDUAL…
That is what is written in your horoscope JOURNAL;
You play GOLF as a means to compete and stay ACTIVE,
But you ought to be regular too in doing your doctor’s VISIT!
“You are smart, compassionate and a true CONVERSATIONALIST…
You can even induce the eyes to eke some MIST;
You also could crack such a good JOKE,
And bring out loud guffaws, and even make somebody CHOKE!
“But what can be deemed as your LEGACY,
Is your hardworking knack and your SIMPLICITY;
Despite your riches, you’ve not displayed any VANITY,
For it seems that a simple life is your plain CUP OF TEA!”
O, di ba ang GANDA ng handang ODA…
Syempre ang babasa ay mas lalong MAGANDA;
Aba’y KUMARE ko itong si CORA CORPUS,
Kaya syempre papuri ko sa kanya’y LUBOS-LUBOS!
PARA INAANAK NIYA’Y MABIGYAN NG BONUS…
DAHIL KALAHOK SA HIPHOP CONTEST SA ESTADOS UNIDOS,
AT LILIPAD PATUNGONG U.S. SA AGOSTO DOS;
PARA MAGING CHAMPION SILA MULI’T TUNAY NA PUSPOS!!!!
