Poetry Magnum Opus

Pinay with a quarterstaff (Notional Ekphrastic)


Recommended Posts

She may be young,

She may be small,

She may even

Be southeast Asian.

Yet do not

Discount her so soon,

For she is nimble,

And she is quick.


Discount not

This girl, who,


And wearing standard

PT gear,

Using a staff:

She swings and thrusts,

And parries; moving

With the grace of a cat,

Taking down

All foes,

Whether other

Soldiers or occult foes,

Winning it all,

For her homeland,

For her host country,

Her fellow pinays

In her special regiment,

And most importantly,

For her Lord and Saviour!
