RIC S. BASTASA


the humble servant


learning to embrace
whoever whatever comes
make them all feel the amenities
of your home
their names: Grief, Remorse,
Misfortune
they're not always dressed
for the proper occasion
and gives you
humiliation
dress them all
to propriety
accommodate and always reserve
a room for them all
they are your constant visitors anyway
when they leave
smile, wave your hands, send them
off with a good heart
and ask them to come back
in the same manner with your
seldom guests: Joy, Bliss and
Hope
after all
they belong to the same family
and you are
one of their compliant
amiable and
humble servant
