A. k. a. Filipino American Dream


Prisoner of War © 2014

 

 

What is your authenticity identity, John Doe?

So do you know my alias name?

Blame for everything in this accelerating devastation.

Question is irrelevant, evident as you and me.

See I am known by nom de plume Manifest.

Quest for is the ultimate tribulation solution.

Delusion set by the arduous facts.

Acts of aggression sent to defuse.

Refuse requisitions summons ready parallel journey.

Ancillary occupying force dubbed Destiny.

Fealty above all is justice for all.

Fall as we may to dismay of loyalty to country.

Infantry is every Tom, Dick, and Harry’s duty.

Faculty sends out the mandates.

Allocates the situation at hand.

Span the legacy of a united federation.

 

Acronym: P.O.W. is Prisoner of War.

Soar like an eagle clipped at the wing.

Sling a globe far from center point.

Disappointment settles an anchor.

Honor above all is missing in action.

Destination is not yet achieved.

Perceive your order as fallible.

Tolerable mends only for so long.

 

State of affairs embark on a fly to a lie.

Die for the cause of which is right or wrong.

Song and dance still plays the pleasing notes.

Denotes we are not their run-through subjects.

Object the puppeteer controls wild animals.

Mammals are we after all no matter the stance.

Glance only to blink knows how to cut the strings.

Brings on the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Ingeniously invents the alibi for hostilities.

Instabilities take effect to reflect and initiate.

Date and time is what the doctor ordered to drop the dime.

Find there is no out-and-out action to the satisfaction.

Deliberation must clean the mess in a game of chess.

Less there be is a King standing in the end.

Bend the rules contrive to gain a connive stalemate.

Negate they wait for a remedy to their reservations.

 

Acronym: P.O.W. is Prisoner of War.

Soar like an eagle clipped at the wing.

Sling a globe far from center point.

Disappointment settles an anchor.

Honor above all is missing in action.

Destination is not yet achieved.

Perceive your order as fallible.

Tolerable mends only for so long.

 

I am no God, no Pharaoh, or Czar.

Marred by the manipulation of a manifestation.

Solution when there is a problematic panic.

Mimic by the uniform for which we sworn.

Scorn by the levy which is about to rupture.

Puncture the heart of mankind only to rewind.

Design for the purpose for which we stand.

Band by the unity for the verdict of guilty.

Piety renders no satisfaction of a syllabus.

Must in God we trust - all is ancient history.

Victory is the end of ends in this missive.

Inquisitive as this is intrusive be relevant.

Irrelevant masked by what the eyes cannot see.

Oversee the half-truths for what is truth.

Rooted down to the desolation applies.

Supplies no promissory note for you or me.

 

Acronym: P.O.W. is Prisoner of War.

Soar like an eagle clipped at the wing.

Sling a globe far from center point.

Disappointment settles an anchor.

Honor above all is missing in action.

Destination is not yet achieved.

Perceive your order as fallible.

Tolerable mends only for so long.

 

For I am Manifest and you are Destiny.

Open-endedly, we are the martyr.

Surrender for a feasible freedom.

Kingdom come and Sovereignty go.

Low and behold the plume skylight.

Fight for liberty we have no control over.

Discover the world is a launching stage.

Ages over time much like life the aforementioned.

Author's Note

Glen Yumang Manese
A. k. a. F. A. D. Series IV: Atomic Number 82 © 2014 - is the fourth addition in lyrical verse of my Filipino American Dream Series, which has 7 of 7 verses, a theme and goes from one to the other. This Series deals with a theme about war and other matters, which are reflective throughout the scenes. If you follow along from the first to the last and read each one. The story comes together and you get a feel for the entirety. Of course, this is done in lyrical verse to get the aspect of the read not just with the eyes, but also hear the words for what they are worth. Not one dimensional, but the whole aspect of the Series. The only other attributes missing is the vocals and the musical accompaniment, which, of course, cannot be provided, since that is out of my expertise.

There is a story I want to read that my soul sis told me about called Russian Roulette. its about this boy named Alex who was forced into a life of being an assassin. He was beaten, abused, and starved. He grew up to be killer and would've been hunted and killed if he ran away. "Prisoner of War." "Soar like an eagle clipped at the wing." This strong piece reminds me of that.
