If...

Now
that we can still boast
of some good eggs;
why can’t we sift the wheats
from the chaff?

why can’t we make haste
and don’t make waste…?

Now
that we can still brag
of some good hands;
why can’t we make hay
of the time…
while the sun shines
and create a better state
of strict- minded people?

why can’t we make haste
and don’t make waste…?

Now
that we can still boast
of some good heads;
why can’t we think of how to discard
the rubbish, the bad eggs,
the garbage of our land
and bring forth to the bedridden people
a sort of anew life
with affordable health care, valuable educational system,
tarred and walkable roads,
safe bridges and drinkable water,
stable electricity and…

why can’t we make haste
and don’t make waste…?

What of if on the morrow;
we cannot boast anymore
of these good minds
and what we have in our dispensation,
are rotten mangoes and spoil brutes?
what we would’ve dispense with.
we made to flourish
in our banana republic, and the struggles
and traversing for changes
became a waste of time…

what would we do then?
what can we do then?

Now
that we can still think of
some good minds with visible eyes…
in the jungle
we should wake up from the slumber
to protect and shield
their patriotic innovations to reality
because on the morrow,
if they are being swallowed up
by the fast gathering storms
of today;
and they are being thundered to rest,
we will have ourselves to blame…

why can’t we make haste
and don’t make waste…?

If...
