Cathay Pacific lands on Philippine ground.
There they descend, tugging bags full of
cans, used-clothes, colognes, dollars
for families, for friends, for neighbors
awaiting and waving the millennium's heroes -
the economic warriors, serving foreign lords
A hundred years ago, they fought the invaders.
They died in their birthground.
Today they are still fighting.
Is there something to remember?
