Filmfest Poem

(A tribute to the ongoing Manila filmest currently being shown in all theaters.)
Oh, Misfortune!
by Julsitos

Oh, what misfortune we have wrought
to see such films in wide array-
bereft of wisdom, lack of thought,
a show of splendor in decay.

Our peoples' souls are penned in blood,
our story fills the thickest book,
and in our tongues the fire of God
breathes in films no maker took.

For such I cannot clap and praise
to watch moronic drivel pass,
These lemons do deserve a place-
deep inside the film-makers ass.
