Na-unseat si Grace Padaca.
Among Ed? Next na ba siya?
Ay puno ng pakiramdaman
Si Jesse Robredo ay sadyang nahintakutan
’Tinuloy kanilang pagbibilang
At pagsapit ng Linggo sino kayang mapupuruhan?
O kay lupit naman ng Comelec
Ruling nito ay sadyang kay bagsik
Natulog kaming pwesto ang kapiling
Ngunit wala na nang kami’y gumising
O kay lupit, Nicodemo Ferrer
Kung umasta para kang si Hitler
Ang ruling mo’y sadya ngang kay saklap
Sa isang iglap lang, tanggal na ang lahat!
Have a great week ahead!
