This book is mainly a collection of various poems authored by Francisco “Soc” Rodrigo – a critic and political detainee of the Martial Law Regime. Writing his first original poem while in detention in 1972, his succeeding literary works were deemed subversive. Persons holding copies of these – including Rodrigo – were put in prison. The book presents the author’s writings according to various subjects such as religion, nationhood, Love, Democracy, Dictatorship, the Military, Freedom, Politics and the Voting Ballot, History, and Morality.
