THIS COUNTRY IS NOT A POEM

THIS COUNTRY IS NOT A POEM
 IT’S A WHEAT OF GRAINS

    
WITH LIES AT ITS BACKGROUND
WHERE LIVES HAVE BECOME A PING PONG
                                                

THIS COUNTRY IS NOT A POEM
IT’S A WHEAT OF GRAINS

    
WITH LIES AT ITS BACKGROUND
 WHERE PROMISES HAVE REMAINED UNFULFILED

                                     
STILL WE MUST IGNITE OUR HOPES
AND NOT FOCUS ON THE LACUNA

THE LOST HEN WILL SOON FIND ITS WAY HOME
 AND THE STRAY DOG WILL REMEMBER THE
 SOUND OF THE WHISTLE
