  12797.     

the native of the house

he mistakes joseph
as the shepherd
and the thought the
sheep are goats
he does not know
what the star means
or what does Mary do
or what is the significance
of the baby at
the manger

and yet the world
claims that it has
educated already
all the people....
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12798.     

THE NATURE OF TYRANNY

blood has flowed
so much of it
under the bridge

life is wasted
in future's name

tyrants are
overturned
replaced by
heroes who in
due time
shall become
themselves
tyrants in their
own name
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12799.     

the need for affirmation

how i tried to be just myself in the corner
like a stone
but it is not at all possible
i am not just a stone
i am a worm

how i wish just to wriggle
and live in that
small leaf
but it is not at all possible
i am a butterfly

how i wish just to flutter
from one flower to
another
but it is not at all possible
i am a bird

how i wish to be just a bird,
a cloud, the sun, the moon
or the thousand stars

and then i become
a man

and it is enough
you just called my name
and it is perfectly a good beginning
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12800.     

The Need For An Institution And A Philosophy

do not be too proud
to say that you do not need temples
and houses and
philosophies

I've been there and it does not please
me at all

the rain was heavy
and the night was so dark
i miscalculated it

the air was so cold
and the foxes are many

the snakes are still
assessing whether to attack and then bite
and take what is good
for their bellies

i am going back home
for good.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
