Directive
by Raul Moldez

Considering the gravity
of complaints enumerated
herein by the homeless residents
that: 1) you destroyed
the makeshift houses in their hearts
and 2) bulldozed the remaining
intelligentsia in their minds,
thereby forcing themselves
to take up arms and sporadically
open fire at your men,
wounding dozens of them,
you are hereby directed
to forthwith re-install their thoughts
and immediately re-build their emotions
so as to prevent the unnecessary
exchange of bullets and
to enable us all to live in peace.
For your strict compliance.

(Published in Philippines Free Press, Jan. 8, 2000)
