Bihira ang hindi bagkus karaniwan,
ay mga lalaki ang sinasapian;
Salita at kilos ay nangingibabaw,
Mahilig bumangka sa mga umpukan!
Ngayon ay marami ang bihag ng lungkot,
Sa nilisang bayang nagdurusang lubos;
Tanungin ang lider, sasabihi’y ayos;
Nguni’t ang totoo ay naghihikahos!
Mayroon din namang kaya ang magyabang,
Nakaririwasa at may nalalaman;
Iba sa palalong walang-wala naman,
Kapuwa ay nais lamang malamangan!
Kayabanga’y bitag ng mga palalo,
sa sunod-sunurang madaling masilo!
