Rest Thee Carabao

Erle Frayne D. Argonza:)

From childhood to young adulthood I feasted myself
With sights of carabaos at work in fields of planters

Like willful servant the carabao has been unto us
Humble Filipinos of an aegis of rustic past

Came forth new times and tractors filled the lands
Where carabaos once tread the fields till wee hours

Gradually did carabaos came to rest at last
No more to shame nor lame for slave tasks

So let it be the new mark of unfolding times
That carabaos be our true friends sit in glory

[Philippines, 14 October 2010]
