Get Rich

Who is to say the roots Are not the weeds?


-–Poet Al Robles from the poem "Tagatac in Ifugao Mountain"





Nelson was this big

Irish kid that lived

Up the street from

My grandma

He used to hang out

With this black kid

Named "D" who lived

Near him

Nelson’s hair was brown

And unkempt which

Made it all the more


He wore Ben Davis pants

And sometimes he’d walk

Sayaw Ng Mandirigma (Dancing with the warriors)

The journey to the homeland for a worker, a father an Escrimador!
