Your crafty look
Star in the heart of the pad.
Ailment in a rustling skirt -
The slenderness of fast legs,
Silence of all the speakers
Your simple nod.
But like the pain of redemption
Your lungs lips.
And mysteriously oblivion
Wandering around the house with a smoldering torch,
Mother faded away
Cooking for us, the two of us,
The hand was shaking
Reading the news of unbridled newspapers,
Increasingly, looking for a photo album,
A tear flowed down
And behind the glass a hundred times washed windows
The country was crippled by an excess of idiots
And the mother said
How nice that THAT is without a father
I could not stand the heart of a patriot.
