  2797.     

The Teacher

The teacher must know
As Plato once
Well said it
Years ago,

A teacher is but a midwife
But the disciple
The student
Is still the one who
Gets himself
Impregnated with
Ideas

The teacher simply helps
In giving the birth
Of the ideas that
The student must himself
Conceive

When the ideas are born
The teacher cares for them
Newly born babies
Now having exciting lives
Of their own

The teacher watches them
Very well pleased,
Excited for something new
Greater than himself,
Rising above
Almost all else, then the teacher
Claps his hands & then
Happily dies,
His mission is accomplished.

  2798.     

The Tenant

the tenant bought the land
owned by my father and
he comes here behaving
like my father who thought
the land is the only world
where he can portray him
self as a master, ohh,
this is not the case any
more that what you know
i know. The land is gone
and so shall my father be
ohh, i am very happy, the
kind of opression we all
tasted is over now. We
shall rejoice for this loss.
This is freedom and this
is victory. At last i am
free. The curse shall now
be his own, not mine.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  2799.     

The Third Woman

She is the offer whom I accepted.
My heart and my head were bartered.
Such a price that I pay, I have less
My heart and my thoughts, but I manage though
For all these years

Oh she is beautiful and my flesh trembled
And I surrender without conditions
I am helpless
I am despite,
I am dumb.
But I assure myself, things will turn out just fine
As planned
As patiently planned

She will not talk and she will not answer questions
About her past and what the future brings her
She lies before me, she will be beside me
Her mind somewhere else, her heart not on her breast
And she tells me she loves me
And will do whatever it takes to comply with the contract

She also surrenders
She is helpless
She is despite
She is also dumb like me.

Sometimes I recall, have I ever invited her out for dinner
So my friends will know her?
How unkind, she is always designed as a woman-object
Fit for my bed.

We are miserable. What we need is a little time to stop this.
We shall figure it out sometime
When all the two women are dead.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  2800.     

The Third Xanor

coffee cannot help
it keeps me awake
but that is not enough
to conquer this
lousy feeling

tonight the ants
are busy carrying
the gifts
the lizards stare
at me
upside down

the window is open
i let the wind come in
to join me
in this loneliness

i sit staring the darkness
i turn off the light
there is no moon there
are no stars

the second pill of xanor
shall take me
to another true encounter
with you

you that i cannot defeat
nothing conquers you
this love, this surrender
this stupidity!
