Sign of the times

((a haiku sequence) 

        again, she tidies
        the almost empty desk
        another lay-off

        job fair 
        the line keeps growing
        longer and longer

        foreclosed house
        the children’s swing
        stops swinging

        tent city
        they welcome
        the newcomers

Cory Aquino

and rosaries
stopped the tanks and soldiers;
people power tested and won
that day.
yellow flowers adorn her grave
first lady president,
a mere housewife,
she said.
