Awakening Sensation

Poem By Judith Kempis

The means humans use to kill them may not be painless and nice
But despite trapping and poisoning they will never bring about the extinction of rats and mice
One female rodent can give birth to five hundred young a year
That this is their means of survival does seem obviously clear

For centuries humans have used cats and dogs for rodent control
This than rats more so than mice did take a greater toll
But baiting and trapping as a means of pest control has met with greater success
Still no shortage of rats and mice in the World nonetheless

As carriers of disease fatal to humans rats and mice are known
Over the centuries the number of human fatalities due to rodent spread disease into millions has grown
In dark holes and crevices in human homes they hide by day
From where you sleep the nearest rat or mouse may not be far away

Their secrets of survival their breeding capabilities and their sexual drive
And despite cats and dogs and baiting and trapping as a species they survive
Though to rid the World of them humans their best does try
Like rabbits they breed again and multiply.

Filipinos are hardworking and responsible
Friendly to others and all hospitable
Good moral values and respectful most of all
With long-patience and all lovable.

Man In The Jungle

There was a man in the jungle
I spied on him but tried not to mingle
Then I observed that he is alone and single
He was active and he knew the jungle at every angle.

Anger In My Heart

If heart could only speak, I guess it will never be break
But since it only beats that dictates the mind what it means
Through the tongue that choose the right words to speak.

Spirit Of Christmas

Christmas is coming near
Time to give and share
To love and forgive our dear
Not only for the people we care.
