MADE Architecture – Modern Bamboo Design House – Architecture Competition Entry

I

Dried from Exhaustion
Lost in the Translation
Confused in the Submission
Expectant in completion
___That was who I am

III

One came a call
While I was in the Mall
Another meeting, o darn
To Manila I will return

II

Spent from Exertion
The Joy of Triumph
The Pain of Defeat
The taste was all mine.

IV

They say, they pay the fare
I, the rest, my dear,
But sad another couple absence,
I am a Professor, you see.

V

So, I’m off to the Airport and fly
To rent a Hotel for a Night
But sleepless, restless, mindless I tread,

To the Death,
To Obscurity
To Oblivion
To the Mercy

the Mercy of the (MADE) Metrobank Committee.

VI

On my own expense I dine,
Rendering Walkthrough(3D) line-by-line
I curse my fate, by the Stars
Why by their whim I slave away this far!

VIII

I look to the Mirror,
And practice my lines
I wince with Terror
At the eyebugs in my eyes.

VII

I pick up my Papers and Cue
Set the Powerpoint Page to New
Type Away, Click Away, Quiet
Through last ounce of Energy to the night.

IX

I console myself with the Thought
After this, I eat and Sleep and strut
It wouldn’t pay for blood and tears,
The risk to health (from puyat) to my years.

X

So I’m off to Metrobank Tower
In Gil Puyat, Makati, ready and sober,
But sleepless, restless, mindless I tread,

To the Death,
To Obscurity
To Oblivion
To the Mercy

the Mercy of the (MADE) Metrobank Committee.

XI

I wait for my time, for Presentation
Impress all the Judges, grab their Attention
They are well dressed, and composed
Ernest, keen and seated, in their Rows.

XII

So I’m off to give my Presentation
Clueless and Grilled, up to Perfection
But sleepless, restless, mindless I speak,

To the Death,
To Obscurity
To Oblivion
To the Mercy

the Mercy of the (MADE) Metrobank Committee.

XIII

I talk of Architecture,Concept & Light
While they listened, somewhat uptight
They brushed us around,talk at our backs
And kept us in suspense,we can’t relax.

XV

We were called, back to the meeting
Before us, envelopes sealed a-sitting
We were motioned forward to open
Up flew a sign of Death, a raven.

XIV

O, how Destinies would turn
And happiness would end
When you stir up the Heart
Deep sorrows they would send!

XVI

Oh, that I only listened
To the little voice inside
And not the authorities,
That beckon to abide.

XVII

So I’m off to open the Letter
and see that I won the Price! This is to be. . .
But sleepless, restless, mindless I tread,

To the Death,
To Obscurity
To Oblivion
To the Mercy

the Mercy of the (MADE) Metrobank Committee.

  1. I’m so touched… I sympathize…. May the good Lord give you the courage and strength to face this dilemma… I salute you!

  2. An interesting and entertaining example of Prose…I wonder if you wrote it yourself or if you asked others to help? It makes a difference y;know)
