At Long Last, Manila….

Tonight’s finale,

at long last, Manila,

shining delicately at night,

twitted the space commander.

Tonight’s finale,

That’s not Manila,

hidden in the dark of past glories,

left behind by the lights of commerce,

far beyond her boundaries.

Tonight’s finale,

That’s not Manila,

Weep not stars of night,

Daybreak will come soon,

old and new Manila, 

all equal under the glare 

of summer’s hot sun.
