by George C. Palaganas(a.k.a. Cool Dela Peña)
Hail to the guard of the Stanley peninsula!
Bring all their might in the fairness of Hudson
Sailors,oilmen and freighters
adore all the splendor of this valley.
Hail to the monument of the Self-less god!
Ring all their vows in the beauty of the Frazer
Runners,bikers and walkers
speak of its majesty as they pass this alley.
Behold the embrace of a nearby Lion's Gate
And listen to the sound of waves beneath
wake-up the hustle and bustle
of the whole Victoria Island pack.
Behold the grace of a lonesome rock
a recluse for pelicans and seagulls alike
Nothing more and nothing will be
is so enkindling as the Siwash ROCK.
