Filipino, Tagalog… WHAT?!

sa panahong “raw” at “daw”
pinagkaiba’y di alam
at mga tanong tulad ng
“what’s tuliro?” o di naman kaya’y
“what’s talinhaga?”
ang madalas na marinig…

buwan ng wika
dapat nga bang ipagdiwang?

born and bred in the Philippines
we claim
but we do not even know the difference
between Filipino and Tagalog

matalinhaga oo nga!
ako’y natutuliro!
