LATE BLOOMS: Remembering Gat Andres

It should not be forgotten
that treachery from within
was what did Bonifacio in.
And that, in my mind,
is a lesson we never learned:
opportunists always worm their way in,
with fiery words from their mouths spewing
and in the end send our dreams down the drain.
Then we let them do it again and again.
