Diehard Nazareno Nation, 2012
by R.M. Bernardo
online author of real RIZAL Pinoys Shun
Ranked with the faith-besotted of Third World,
Nazareno Nation ever limps and lags;
Teems with Mama Mary & Son’s adorers,
Avoids serious reads, its degrees suspect;
And lets its heroic “Wielder of the Bolo”
Cut down to size unread “Pride of Malayans”.
Know they Freethinker’s anti-Church anti-armsness?
If so, they’d have made Bonifacio Top Hero!,
Not the U.S.-backed Masonic rights-champ,
Embraced for real self as modernizing model
Whom misled masses took for to-arms Catholic.
Church-fought freethought Noli ‘s Epigraph dared:
“How can such wastrels & rats to greatness rise?”
Yet none read that work as such, nor care to reread.
IQ-ethics-incomes scores rank Nation “Sick”,
Custom-made butts for scornful Brights to kick.
PH Top Hero from works would view things thus.
Self-induced nescience topped Death Poem’s “Pain
Of My Pains,” wailed at unheeding Nation:
It still does not know why he’s topmost hero!
Those Pains should end when it stops being that dumb.
