A remake of the beautiful, positive and uplifting Desiderata.

This is the TROLL version!

Go loudly. Always be the noise and haste,
Create disturbing dissonance every time there is silence.
As far as possible without surrender
Be on bad terms with all persons.
ALL OF THEM are yellowtards

Troll incessantly and be as annoying as possible;
Remember, you are among the dull and the ignorant.
That’s why you make fake news and slick lies,
And believe in them!

Avoid bright and intelligent persons.
They are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself to them,you may become hopeless and bitter.
So just insult and threaten them with death and rape.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble.
Although trolling is not a real job, it is still money.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
Many persons strive for high ideals;
And everywhere life is full of heroism.

Sorry, skip that.
That last verse was not written for people like you.

Deny all goodness in you.Do not reveal what you look like.
A simple egg on twitter is who you are–dull and ignorant
Be gung ho about spreading negativity and venom.
For in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
Life to you is like a long Duterte speech laced with much cursing.
You live for it!

Do not take kindly the counsel of the years.
Be contemptuous of anyone who makes sense.
Call them names. They are old and stupid anyway.

Nurture deception to shield you in sudden misfortune.
Strengthen yourself with the force of evil and lies.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Take Fentanyl.
Remember, the President will protect you.

You are the scum of the universe.
Unlike all living things, you have no right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
No doubt the universe is exorcising,
Vomiting out trolls like you

Therefore be at peace with God ?whatever you conceive him to be,
A mayor from Davao on Fentanyl, a monster with anger issues.
?Remember that whatever your labors and aspirations,
Be reminded that n the noisy confusion and uncertainty of life,
YOU have a salary.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
But you don’t have to accept that.
Insult and threaten everyone
Destroy beauty
Be extra malicious and vile.
Evil is your identity.
Fuck them all.

OBOSEN sila.

  1. There’s a high personal price to pay for anger that is not made useful. The challenge is to find a system that works in the long term and that can correct itself from within.
    1986 taught us that citizen participation is useful but that an EDSA-1 does not work w/o a consistently watchful follow-through. There are only so many EDSA’s that a society can tolerate without falling into anarchy. Wish that there was some kind of Namfrel-like citizen watchdog movement that is permanently calling accountability down the throats of “public servants” because, when viewed at some distance, much of the troll input is rooted in despair. Heck– I nearly abandoned ship too. I suspect that, to a significant extent, we’re all in this together.

  2. Gosh….ilove desiderata…but your version of it is definitely heart-and-mind-shaking…you hit it hard SIR….while the original is soothing and heartening…yours is disturbing and disruptive…yes…you succeeded in versifying the sounds and fury of a president gone berserk…
    indeed…your Duterterata is the perfect antithesis of all that is soft and clean,tender and serene,ennobling and inspiring in the poetry of DESIDERATA…..MY LORD….WHEN WILL THE POETIC AND PACIFYING TONE OF DESIDERATA BRING BACK THE PEACE AND SERENITY IN THE HEART OF THE FILIPINO NATION …yes,my LORD,my Sweet MAMA MARY…look with compassion on the Filipinos and heal our land……
