Boy Bastos – What is Politics?

From Baul ni Noel
Boy Bastos goes to his dad and asks, “What is Politics?”

Dad says, “Well son, let me try to explain it this way:

I’m the head of the family, so call me GMA (Gloria Macapagal Arroyo).
Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government.
We’re here to take care of your needs, so we’ll call you the People.
Your Yaya Inday, we’ll consider her the Working Class.
And your baby brother Junior, we’ll call him the Future.
“Now, think about that and see if it makes sense.”

So, the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said.

Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has totally crapped in his diaper.

So, the little boy goes to his parent’s room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to his yaya’s room.

Finding the door locked, he looks in the peephole and finds his father in bed with Inday. He gives up and goes back to bed.

The next morning, the little boy says to his father, “Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now.”

The father says, “Magaling, Boy Bastos! Tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about.”

The little boy replies, “Si GMA yinayari pala talaga ang Working Class, tapos yung Government walang ginawa kundi tulog lang nang tulog. The People hindi pinapansin and the Future… nakalubog na sa ebak!”

    kaya nga politics, kasi, so dirty, they do their best (kill as much as they can) to survive.
    alam nyo ba ba si Jesus Christ didnt join politics, kahit gusto siya ng tao na maging hari nila?

    Dahil nga sa napakadumi ng palakad neto.Mapalad na lang ang hindi sumali.
