And So It Goes…

Ten years of lonely days and lonely nights in America

Could travel to new land via big jet airliner – pay rent, therapy and live meagerly but in comfort – not in America – but…

In the Philippines…

In the Philippines, for therapy, five years, but not progressive

In the Philippines, enjoyed treatment of the, “Rich American”

In the Philippines, you said you loved me and I was fooled, you pretended well

In the Philippines, you stole my money – three times

In the Philippines, we fought and we argued, but we endured

In the Philippines, you were embarrassed of me

In the Philippines, you wouldn’t introduce me to friends or family

In the Philippines, we conceived perfection

In the Philippines, you were necessary, but evil towards me

In the Philippines, I married you anyway so you could save face with your family

In the Philippines, an angel was born

In the Philippines, obtained visitor’s visa for you and angel to visit America

In the Philippines, said, “Paalam” and went aboard big jet airliner to… America

Given a felony for that set-up and trumped-up charge in America
