Ode to the Warrior Fairy

(Tribute to me DAW)

Warrior Fairy, lithe and fair,
Sailing softly through the air.
Hear the beating of the drum –
Rhythms of the war to come.

Be attentive, be prepared;
Warrior Fairy, don’t be scared.
Take your wand, grab your bow.
Don’t forget your magic arrow.

Trolls and ogres are marching in;
Bringing terror with a grin.
Warrior Fairy, do not run
Cast a spell or raise your…gun (?)

Listen, listen! Hear that sound?
Trees are falling to the ground.
Fairy Woods are burning down.
Warrior Fairy – do not frown!

Warrior Fairy, it’s time to fight.
Put your enemies to flight.
Strike your wand and fire your arrows.
Put an end to all your sorrows.

Drag the trolls back to their cave –
Oh Warrior Fairy, bold and brave!
Hurry now, do not delay!
Send the ogres far away.

Dawn has come, the sun will rise
I see the twinkle in your eyes
Warrior Fairy, job well done
All your enemies are gone

Tired and weary from the night
All you want is to sleep tight
No more war cries, no more bloodshed
Warrior Fairy… go to bed (nighty night!)

Oryx is on a roll! The ode reminds me so much of the testi he gave me when Friendster was still considered (errr….) cool.

Think of Ciarra Sotto, KC Concepcion with a hint of Angel Aquino, all wrapped in one. But with a twist! That’s probably the closest thing you’ll ever get to Iya. Teacher Iya was my teacher nung grade six pa ako (hahaha loko lang!). No, seriously, this chunk of starlight in human form is the best thing I got from my neighbor Raymond. Siya lang ang nakaka”bear” sa short term memory loss ko. For example: You know, last Saturday, at Pravda, I saw Lucky Concepcion. Baka Lucky Manzano? *Mejo sarcastic pa!* Ay, oo nga no! [Hahahaha that’s the reason why I feel like I’m intellectually challenged when I’m with her] O tama na ang drama. If I could compare Iya with three things [aside from Ciarra, KC and Angel] eto yun: Roller Coaster ride, Legal High, A Main Sequence Star. Parang Roller Coaster ride si Iya kasi kahit mabilis ang pangyayari mag-eenjoy ka pa din (Whoa! Ano yun???) What I mean is, regardless of how fleeting or how lasting your encounter with Iya is, the intensity remains. She’s a woman of impact (impact, not Impakta), full of charm and kahit na minsan, nakakahilo, okay pa din. She’s one ride you’ll always find worth the expense. Next! Legal High. Kung merong Phsycoactive Substance na dapat i-ban, si Iya yun! Kasi pag kasama ko siya, sumasakit ang chan ko at namamanhid ang face ko sa kakatawa. Kahit na sabihin niya seryoso na yung topic, she always finds a way to keep things light kapag nakakadepress na. Ganyan si Iya. Better than XTC or Wari. Lafftrip, energy trip, road trip (basta kahit anong trip na okay), ma-eexperience mo lahat kapag kasama mo siya. Para kang nagtake ng exotice mushroom at natransport sa ibang planeta na puro euphoria lang. Hehehe pag niRename natin siya, sige euphorIYA na lang. Last na! Main
Sequence Star. O bakit? Alam ko feeling ni Iya ay Super Nova slash Nebula siya. Well hindi siya actually ganun. Like our sun, she gives warmth and light without the danger of radiating too much. Dahil perpetual yung kindess niya at may consistency siya, maasahan mo itong si Iya. Parang yung araw, palaging sumisikat. (Oist Iya! Pag sikat ka na don’t you ever forget me alright?)

Grabe. Oryx. Ang tagal mo na palang hardcore nambobola. Kaya pala sobrang tagal na rin nating magkaibigan.:p

Come home na! Let’s do more crazy stuff! And you can make me bola some more!

I promise to bola you back! And probably make an ode for you as well! :p

  3. Sad to say… Oryx is gone. Here is the information I received from Fr. Herman:
    With sadness I am relaying the news that our first year seminarian of the Fr. Hannibal Formation Center, SEM. JOSE ROMERICO PRIETO, passed away this morning (January 14, 2014 at 4:55 in the morning). The death was caused probably by the complication which led to heart failure. The Seminary community did everything to assist him but to no avail. Let us entrust him to the loving mercy of God. Please offer prayers for his eternal rest. The family decided that the wake will be in the Our Lady of Beautiful Love Memorial Chapel, merville park, paranaque city.
