Of Callused Souls

-Alex Remollino 

For Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV

There are those who would salute your failed attempts
at leading a changing of the guard,
and there are those who would thumb them down.

But that is beside the point —
the point being that you definitely had a point
in those instances you wondered aloud why people
have repeatedly failed to rise to the occasion
at crucial points
in our recent history of benightedness.

Have their souls become so thoroughly callused
by repeated dehumanization
that they now think like beasts of burden?
