Sonnet Tribute: Philippine Dilg Undersecretary Jesse Robredo (May 27, 1958 – August 18, 2012)
Ironic it was for such Hero’s Song
To be played on a Mattress we call the Sea
Just when your Daughter cried for your Belong
We need to Sing again; Then Pray haply
For the many Noble Deeds you left behind
Despite this Age of the Pork Barrel’s Tune
Such Rumours unfound; And Profile a Lie
Which most in our Office hoarded our Boon
Live well Beyond, Great Sir! I take to Vow
Your Aubourn Treatment to our Country’s Hope
Guide your Duty’s Heirs; And Family enow
And bring this Rosary blessed by your Pope.
The Song is Sung, even on Deaf Concerns
I guess it’s quite Young for People to Learn.
Thank you, Josh.
