Check Point

worked late again last night at sinamahan ako ni misis
habang nagaayos ng pc
on our way home riding a taxi eh bumulaga sa amin
ang may bahagyang haba ng pila ng sasakyan dahil sa checkpoint
it’s not that bad actually, para lang syang pila ng
taxi sa landmark pero hassle traffic na sa standards dito.
when it was our turn to be checked eh binababa ng taxi driver ang bintana
at sumilip naman ang police sa bintana

parak: how’re you doing my friend?
manongdriver: oh, we’re good
badong: good, good
parak: well it’s just a routine check, no biggy
manongdriver: ok
badong: no problem
police: where’re you guys headed to?
badong: sandalwood
police: …
police: ok, you can go through and head on to your way now and drive safely
manongdriver: thank you officer
badong: thanks
misis: wag ka sagot ng sagot, iyung driver lang iyung kausap. tahimik lang mga pasahero usually
badong: oh
