National Language

The last time I heard from that country called the Philippines

is that the national language is still Tagalog.

and the national hero is still a Tagalog.

But why is there now an all-out war against

the people who are natural-born Tagalogs?

If another hero is to be proclaimed

it should be him who is not traitorous

nor vindictive, and not only because

he was assassinated.

And if another national language is to be proclaimed

let it be that which was not only because

it was proclaimed.
