Greece a nation in exile
Claiming to the God with
more beard than Samson*,
for the broken dishes.
Greece tragedy, Greece beardless.
I should not tell you, but you
are more than two thousand years old.
Discover your at your age than others
countries seek their own interests…
Greece for fuck sake the
“Three wise men” are the parents!
Celebrate with a populist lust
typical of my land, a No.
What do you mean by No Greece?
Life is not Macondo**
and you’re not fighting for
the Liberation theology***.
The whores and all the money in
Switzerland must be paid back°.
I feel for your pensioners
your children without a future,
their parents out of work.
Denying what happens to you,
not facing your past,
not assuming your sins,
will only produce more pain.
Democracy you should know
better than anyone,
it is not only about voting,
it is about growing up.
* The Greek God has always had more beard.
