off a troll,
start with a big word
he’ll be wondering
how it’s pronounced,
and, too lazy to lift
his fingers and Google
how to say it, he won't
read any further,
not knowing in English it means
— the acceptance
of an immoral situation
due to selfishness or
like when people are killed openly on the streets by state agents and
no one protests because only drug addicts get killed and bystanders are mere collateral damage.
— the position of body lying down and the face is looking upwards like when the drugs addicts are killed and they are made to lie facing the sky as the policemen put a gun on their hands to make it appear the corpses were involved in a shoot-out.
Sa Tagalog, “supin” syort por
sumisipsip na Pilipino kaya
kahit patayan ng patayan
walang nagrereklamo kasi hapi-hapi tayo.
Supin supine in the face of murder.
And he, friendly neighborhood troll,
might even click “like" and "share”
if you end with
