XVIII

For we shouldn’t place our hope in Man
Whose minds may change like shifting sands
They are mortal, undependable
Their thoughts and minds are unstable

XIX

Congratulations, Celebration, Joy and Grief,
The Judge Announce, O what deceit!
Hollow words echo across the Halls
While I run down through the walls

XX

A wriggly man to me, approach
We’re glad you Won but take these Notes
We plead with you, be silent Please
Until we (Metrobank Foundation) launch our Press Release

XXI

So, I’m off to my Hotel, to pack my Bags
Walking like a Zombie, my Mind’s like a Rag
But Sleepless, Restless, Mindless I Pack,

To the Death,
To Obscurity
To Oblivion
To the Mercy

the Mercy of the (MADE) Metrobank (Foundation) Jury.

XXII

Two weeks past, this call I catch
From the Validating Team
And, awaiting them I glance my Watch
Waiting for Eternity it Seems.

XXIII

The team arrives, and Headway dives
Into files and every Crook and Cranny
Collecting Info, Person, Place and Time
to Clear some doubt if there is any.

XXIV

So I’m off to answer Questions
To clarify and give my Reasons
But sleepless, restless, mindless I answer,

To the Death,
To Obscurity
To Oblivion
To the Mercy
the Mercy of the (MADE) Metrobank (Foundation) Jury.

XXV

So a week had past and now again
They break the news, and give a plan
We change our mind, We’ll take it back
Your Award’s Recalled, – no more plaque.

XXVIII

I remember, I spoke Plain and Clearly
I never hid (information) from the Jury
Everyone heard my Testimony
(And they had time aplenty)
To decide their Final verdict

XXVI

I said “Maam, Please explain, can’t understand”
“The whole meaning of what you plan”
“We plead with you, Withdraw your Entree
So you could join, again next year.”

XXIX

“Our (Unanimous) Choice of you was cast,
Sorry but we changed our Mind,
Our Decision’s made with speed and rush,
Forgive us, for your waste of Time.”

XXVII

“Does not your Competition say,
The Jury’s Verdict is Final
How do we Discuss and Sway,
Your Decision with Reversal?”

XXX

“And may you give our one Request
Please Withdraw your Entry, from the Rest
But we will give a chance to Join,
Our Competition in another Time.”

XXXI

“And, though your Work is quite Exemplary
We’re ticker for rules, and Parliamentary,
We are Judges and keep our virility
Appeal if you must, for this Technicality.

XXXII

So I’m off the Competition
Humiliated and Stung by Deception
But Sleepless, Restless, Mindless I Left,

To the Death,
To Obscurity
To Oblivion
To the Mercy
the Mercy of the (MADE) Metrobank (Foundation) Jury.

XXXIII

Today I learn another Lesson
Time and Chance come, to every Person
Take care when you hope in Man
Because Bureaucracy can have other Plans

XXXIV

It’s best to put your Hope Above
On One who sees and judges in Love (not Technicality)
Men can change their Hearts and Mind
They may be unstable, you will find

XXXV

For he who trusts in Men may Fail
But the One above will never Bail (Leave)
He will abide to the End
And preserve your Faith as a Friend
