Across The Bridge!

Across The Bridge!

I cross the bridge, there’s no more sorrow

Across the bridge, there’s more tomorrow

I cross the bridge, traversing the river flow

Across the bridge, a tear drop, sinks below…


Mabang! Thy tapestry weaves to a finer discourse

Where men, kindled their minds to flow across…

On your river banks, the arms spread a gloss

Of finer steels, hardened and test-fitted by man, the boss!


Where is thy foot stand, oh quiet Mabang!

Where is thy best-fit, the linear-flowing Mabang!

The tweets of the birds, echo your currents, swift Mabang!

Across the bridge, your strength gave in, with debris, O Mabang!


The planks could not please man, nor hold the boss

Neither the bolts, nor the nuts, could ever contain his iron horse

In the ‘land of the free’, fair hearts, chide with your loss

The rivulets, cut a sombre chord; ‘Mabang bridge’ is fallen down, in remorse…
