A Silent War

The fence of the mini-forest in front of the University of the Philippines has been a battleground since Tuesday, the official start of the election season.

That morning I discovered the fence had been carpet bombed with posters of candidates for senator and party-list representative. It was obvious the posters had been placed there in the wee hours as the paste was still wet. And when I passed by Tuesday night, two men were tying tarpaulin posters of a tandem for president and vice president to the same fence.

The next evening, however, the tarps were nowhere to be found. The rest of the posters were gone yesterday morning.

(No, it wasn't me.)
