Michael V composed a poem summarizing the recent Philippine elections.
On May 12, the Filipino rapper-actor-comedian subtly shared via social media platforms which presidential candidate he has voted for.
“Kulay PULA ang nanalo. Oo, tanggap ko na ito.
“Kahit PINK ang dugo ko mananaig ang RESPETO.
“Lahat kayo na bumoto at nagluklok sa kanya sa trono
“Kayo ang boses ng Pilipino kaya mananahimik na ‘ko,” he wrote.
Red represented the campaign of presidential aspirant Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. during his campaign. Meanwhile the color pink was used by Vice President Leni Robredo.
“Lahat ng may gusto nito, ito mismo ang makukuha n’yo.
“Pero hindi ako bulag at dalawa ang mata ko:
“Isang mata sa bayan at isang mata sa ‘yo.
“Susundin ko ang gobyerno kahit hindi kita ‘binoto.”
Despite having a different result in the elections compared to what he had hoped for, Michael V promised he would not turn a blind eye toward the people and the government.
“Sige na, move on na. ‘Wag nang maghanap ng butas.
“Ang trabaho n’yong naiwan naghihintay pa rin ‘yan bukas.
“Ngayon alam na natin kung sino lang ang malakas,
“Mabuhay ang bagong Pangulo ng Pilipinas.”
Michael V ended his post with the Philippine flag and a raised fist emoji.
