Below is the poem interpreted by Gerilya during the TABAKK event:

Agam-agam ng Cyber Citizen ni Pia Montalban

I
Bystander, saksi
Mastermind, pasimuno
Kakuntsaba, kasama—
Alin ka dito

Tatlong libo’t walong daan
Tatlumpo’t anim na
Kaibigan?

II
Gagaya na lamang ba
Sa tatlong pamosong unggoy
At magsasawalang kibo
Sa nakikita’t nadirinig?

Huwag sanang ilista sa tubig:
Matalino man daw ang matsing,
Napaglalamangan din.

III
Saksihan
Mga paskil na larawan
Mga parikala’t pangungusap
Mga tula’t pahayag
Mga sining ng protesta
Na inuusal ng wall, tweet,
Notes, blog, scribe at (name it).

Tiket ito sa rehas na bakal
Ngunit libreng pamasahe
Sa walang muwang na mamamayan:

Biyaheng pa-Kalayaan.
