The Dethronement

Tell me mother, what's the taste?
Tender chunks of shattered waists
Carnage swimming on your mouth
Macabres concluding route

Mother tell me? what's their fault?
that you've drown them in your salt
With their blood and fluids fuse
Dead ones, never did you choose

Is it like a candy drawn?
When you chew them and their gone
By your tempestuous tongues
Fishes found a home on lungs

You pity not the drowning
And savor all the dying
Those pale faces whom you've bound
On heels, so they can't be found

Mother did you treat her well?
On your limbs, a swelling hell
The princess poor has lost her crown
For you hanged her upside down

Mother, mother may i ask?
Is it just to make them cask?
Made of metal, twisted cry
Your dominion they defy

Its a lesson you inflict
Those who mock and maledict
Your cordial sublimity
They keep breaking your decree

Mother, still they do not hear
All their faults, your children dear
How much will they have to pay?
Murders of so grim a day

Gerald Galindez said...

yes arben..., P200,000 is not enough for the damage emotionally... the unfortunate ones...
our government sucks! they dont know what to do.., as long as the ship is in there., the fishing industry of romblon will perish...

Gerald Galindez said...

the mother figure in the poem, is not human...


its really " NATURE "
mother nature... having revenge on us
cause we abuse her kindness... we abuse nature right, aren't we?

its the main thought of this poem..

Gerald Galindez said...

try analyze the lines... and you'll see what i mean...

Xegben said...

some refer her as Gaia -
greek myth
our mother nature...
this is human nature,
to accumulate resources until exhaustion...

Jo said...

Guess what! Well, you'll just have to pop over to my little world and see! ;-)

flipt said...

this is one of those times when mother nature is getting back at us for what we're doing to her... u mistreat the mother, u face consequences... every "child" is punished for a sin which has or which may have not been committed by the many.. x_x
