“Komposo ni Rodielyn sa Tacayan” was composed by Tumandok children during the Children’s Rehabilitation Center fact-finding mission in barangay Tacayan, Tapaz, Capiz in October 2012. Rodielyn Aguirre was killed by an M203 grenade explosion. The “Komposo” was also performed by Tumandok children during the 9th Tumanduk Assembly in barangay Aglinab, Tapaz, Capiz last January 18, 2014. I am posting the lyrics of the song followed by my and Karlo’s rough English translation as well as the case report by the human rights alliance Karapatan.

Pag puas sang lupok ana nga nakit-an
