Nick Carbo - The Filipino Politician

When he finds his wife in bed with another man-- 

The conservative politician feels an ache in his stomach, 
remembers the longanisa and the tapa he had for breakfast. 
He doesn't know whether to get the doctor or Cardinal Sin 
on the phone. He calls one of his bodyguards, tells him 
to shoot the man and then, his wife. He takes his .38 magnum 
from his brief case, shoots his bodyguard in the back. 

The liberal politician pours himself a glass of Courvoisier, 
remembers a passage from an Anais Nin story. 
He is suddenly the one they call the Basque. He removes 
his Dior tie, his Armani shirt, his Calvin Klein boxer shorts. 
He puts on a black beret, whispers, tres jolie, tres jolie, 
que bonito, muy grande my petite amore. He joins them 
in bed, begins his caresses on the man's calves, 
kisses his way up the man's thighs. 

The communist politician does not call his wife a puta, 
nor does he challenge the man to a duel with balisong knives. 
He stays calm, takes out a book of poems by Mao Tse Tung. 
Inspired, he decides to advance the Revolution. 
He takes a taxi to Roxas Boulevard, he begins to curse 
and throw rocks at the American Embassy.
