PARANGAL KAY ANDRES BONIFACIO
Tula ni Jose Maria Sison

Gaano kadakila si Ka Andres Bonifacio?
Di siya naniwala na banal at palagian ang kaayusang
Kolonyal at pyudal na pinagharian ng sakim at lagim.
Suklam siya sa sabwatan ng espada at krus.
May tiwala siyang mananaig ang sambayanan
Pag nagkaisa’t nangahas lumaban sa mang-aapi.

Gaano kadalisay si Ka Andres Bonifacio?
Nagpasya siyang maglingkod sa bayan
Para ipaglaban ang pambansang kalayaan,
Kamtin ang katarungan at kaunlaran.
Nag-alay ng buhay at handang mamatay
Para sa bayan at maaliwalas nilang kinabukasan.

Gaano katalino si Ka Andres Bonifacio?
Hango ang kaalaman sa kasaysayan
At kalagayan ng masang anakpawis
Na nagdusa, nagsikap at umasang
Makalaya sa pagsasamantala at pang-aapi
Ng mga among dayuhan at lokal na ganid at malupit.

Gaano kadunong si Ka Andres Bonifacio?
Higit pa sa mga nakapagpamantasan
Na walang alam o pakialam sa naghihinagpis
Na mga anakpawis at sa kung ano ang kaya nilang gawin.
Higit pa sa mga di nagbasa o di nakasapol
Sa diwa ng kalayaan, kapantayan at kapatiran.

Gaano kagiting si Ka Andres Bonifacio?
Itinayo ang Katipunan sa kabila ngpananakot
Sa paghuli kay Rizal at pagbuwag saLiga.
May pasyang lagutin ang tanikalang kolonyal
Ihayag ang kasarinlan at pamunuan ang rebolusyon.
Sa gayon, naging Ama ng bansang Pilipino.

Gaano kahalaga si Ka Andres Bonifacio?
Kung paghahambingin, tumanggi si Rizal
Sa dibdibang alok na pamunuan ang rebolusyon.
Kung paghahambingin, naisahan ni Aguinaldo ang Supremo
Ngunit marangal ang bayaning martir
At kahiya-hiya ang taksil at maulit na palasuko.

Gaano pa kahalaga si Ka AndresBonifacio?
Ang pinamunuan niyang rebolusyon ang nagbukas
Ng landas ng demokratikong rebolusyon sa buong Asya.
Sa gayon, napakataas ng karangalan ni Bonifacio
Tungo sa pamumuno ng kanyang uring proletaryo
Sa panahon ng bagong demokratikong rebolusyon.

Patuloy na inspirasyon natin si Ka Andres Bonifacio,
Patnubay natin ang kanyang halimbawa
Mahigpit nating tungkuling tularan siya at isulong
Ang sinimulan niya hanggang ganap nating maipanalo.
Lumaban upang gapiin ang imperyalismo at reaksyon,
Kamtin ang kalayaan at tumungo sa sosyalismo.

TRIBUTE TO COMRADE ANDRES BONIFACIO
Poem by Jose Maria Sison

How great was Comrade Andres Bonifacio?
He did not believe that the colonial and feudal order
Ruled by greed and terror was sacred and eternal
He detested the connivance of sword and cross
He trusted the entire people could prevail
If they dared to unite and fight the oppressor

How pure was Comrade Andres Bonifacio ?
He decided to serve the people
To fight for national independence,
Achieve justice and progress.
He offered his life and was to ready to die
For the people and for their bright future.

How brilliant was Comrade Andres Bonifacio ?
He drew knowledge from history
And the condition of the working people
Who suffered, strove and hoped
To free themselves from exploitation and oppression
By the greedy and cruel foreign and local masters.

How learned was Comrade Andres Bonifacio?
More than those who reached the university
Who did not know or care to know the anguish
Of the toiling masses and what they can do.
More than those who neither read nor understood
The spirit of liberty, equality and fraternity .

How valiant was Comrade Andres Bonifacio?
He built the Katipunan in the face of intimidation
With the arrest of Rizal and dismantling of the Liga.
He was resolved to break the chains of colonial rule,
He declared independence and led the revolution.
Thus, he became the Father of the Filipino nation.

How worthy was Comrade Andres Bonifacio?
In comparison, Jose Rizal refused
The earnest offer to lead the revolution.
In comparison, Aguinaldo could deceive
The Supremo but noble was the martyr hero
And shameful was the traitor and repeated surrenderee.

How further worthy was Comrade Andres Bonifacio ?
The revolution he led opened the road
Of democratic revolution in the whole of Asia.
Thus, the honor of Bonifacio rose so high
Towards the leadership of his proletarian class
In the era of the new-democratic revolution .

Comrade Andres Bonifacio remains our inspiration,
His example is always our guide
Our urgent task to emulate him and advance
What he began until we achieve complete victory.
Fight to defeat imperialism and reaction,
Achieve freedom and move towards socialism.
