  • POEMS IN HONOR OF ANDRES BONIFACIO IN PILIPINO & ENGLISH
    BY JOSE MARIA SISON

    PARANGAL KAY ANDRES BONIFACIO
    Tula ni Jose Maria Sison

    Gaano kadakila si Ka Andres Bonifacio?
    Di siya naniwala na banal at palagian ang kaayusang

    May tiwala siyang mananaig ang sambayanan
    Pag nagkaisa’t nangahas lumaban sa mang-aapi. Read more
