Sirit (sitsiritsit)

 

sa ilalim ng araw,
ayokong mag-basketball
o’ kumain ng ice-cream

gusto kong mag-swimming.
mag-swimming ng naka-damit.
(baka kasi ma-sunburn at mangitim).

sumayaw ng boogie, ng cha-cha.
kaya mo bang sumayaw?
sumabay sa baybay? (buwisit!)

ayokong maubusan ng sasabihin,
ng yosi. makari kasi, makati kasi.
para bato,

mananatiling tahimik,
parang bato, masarap ipukol,
masakit ang bukol.

sa pagpawi ng misteryo,
tumilapon ang sikreto.
kailangan maka-score (sisiw, chicken).

sa ilalim ng araw
ayokong mag-basketball
o’ kumain ng ice-cream.
