a hundred years after

a hundred years after,

call centers are being built in its land

an increase of 300 percent in its fees

a dwindling number of participants in its rallies.

only 8 out of the 2500 new students received full scholarship

with most having their sights to work in another land.

a hundred years after,

its activism became a memory,

its social consciousness, a mere label,

a national university that sells its past to earn more in the future.

behold the University of the Philippines

commercialized,

repressive,

colonial.
