Poetry is a form of literature that uses aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of language—such as phonaesthetics, sound symbolism, and metre—to evoke meanings in addition to, or in place of, the prosaic ostensible meaning.” [Source]

Around June 25, of the year 2013, I wrote a poem speaking out against corruption in the Philippines. The poem is very much a vindication on venting out my frustrations on the corruption I have personally experienced, first hand, in the Philippines where I sought out justice but justice was never served.

Even now, many other foreigners are speaking out where they also have not received the justice that they rightfully deserved.

Thanks to the “Foreigners for Justice,” which can be found on Facebook, an article was posted, just this last November 15, where foreigners can now speak out if they believe their “Human Rights” have been violated.

The article thus says:119460-117532

Philippines Government are liable to pay foreigners for damages incurred for Human Rights violations or denial of Due Process.

Thousands of Foreigners who have suffered at the hands of corrupt Philippines government officials like the Department of Justice, Bureau of Immigration or negligence by the Commission of Human Rights for not taking action in complaints filed can legally file for punitive damages in their own country.[Read More Here]poem poetry

Enough said about that.

Here is the poem I wrote to express my frustrations towards the corruption in the Philippines as well as Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the U.S.A.


God bless America
the land of the free
and if you don’t believe it
then fly out to the Philippines

Their immigration is waiting
hoping to fool you all they can
collecting all your money
through so many of their scams

And when you notice
their willful mistakes
be sure to know your rights
for they will put you at the stake
so, are you willing to fight

Their laws and Constitution
they seem to look ok
but for those who are in office
they just look the other way

Their lawyers are deceitful
for your money is all they want
despite if your right
or if you were wrong
to them
you are
