Ode to The Filipino Napkin









Ode To The Filipino Napkin

O square of pulp so pressed with rich design
With simple sheerness much of physics you defy
To many duties are you called
You swath the bottle top
You caress lips as stick barbecue’s dry sop
You wipe as sweating drinks’ drops plop
You guard the fork and spoon against the slop
You serve in great numbers at any meal
You fight, you die, yet more of you unfurl
Enduring all even Western curses hurled
Some call you useless
But many just can’t see
Absorption is not your realized glory
It is courtesy

– JD Cook
