DO NOT DEMAND RESPECT FOR THEM
Alexander Martin Remollino
After insults were thrown and heaped upon them
for their being bereft of principles,
a shrill voice rang out,
demanding respect for the "representatives."
But it is the "representatives" who should be asked for respect --
they who are a bunch of serial rapists,
they who arrogantly commit crimes in full view of the nation
and declare that their words are the law.
It is they who should be asked for respect
and not a citizen who pointed his finger
at them who deserve much worse than finger-pointing.
Do not demand respect for them:
there can be no respect for those
whose faces deserve to be doused with the murkiest water.
