At the end of the day...

A bit of instant poetry from Ric de Ungria:

that's why at the end of the day
you realize there is no end to this day
and that you just have to
call it a day

for night to come!


Received through the Davao Writers Guild mailing list.

Ric, by the way, is the indefatigable leader of the guild, one of the many people I am very happy to have met here in Davao. He is also a multi-awarded poet. No fancy airs about him, though (but happily I can say that of all the multi-awarded poets I've met so far.)

The poem was a response to the lingering question why Sun.Star sometimes botches up our pieces when it finally goes to print.

The resignation somehow also sums up how we feel after the recent disasters that hit us.
