politics

What’s with all the political stuff? Should the "P" in AAPC be changed to
politics/political?

Hmmm. I may have to take up drinking again, after all.

For Natercía

For Natercía

No misty songs of love rehearsed,
Just the sarcastic truth
To satisfy the mental thirst
Of your insurgent youth.

Let’s play the drums of change, my friend,
And ditch this boring place,
Rage on until the bitter end
With tenderness and grace.

Oh Natercía, let your light
Illuminate and thrill,
Do not give in without a fight,
Oh sunshine of Brazil!

Critics welcome

ok, I like rhymes so shoot me. Other than that and all the worn out cliches
what? :)
These Walls

If these walls could speak, what would they say?
Would they tell of babies born and old men passed away?
What of all that goes between the birthing and the dying?
All the joy of living and all the work of trying.
Would they speak of love gone wrong and happily ever after?
What of all our hopes and dreams and of childrens laughter?
How many souls have passed a long and sheltered night
safe and warm between these walls, awaiting dawns first light?
How many more will come to rest their weary heads
and whisper secrets in the night as they lay upon their beds?
Secrets only walls will hear and add to what they keep.
Stories they could tell if only they could speak.

For Natércia (corrected)

The accent should be on the second syllable.  Now it’s correct.

For Natércia

No misty songs of love rehearsed,
Just the sarcastic truth
To satisfy the mental thirst
Of your insurgent youth.

Let’s play the drums of change, my friend,
And ditch this boring place,
Rage on until the bitter end
With tenderness and grace.

Natércia, let loose your light,
Illuminate and thrill,
Do not give in without a fight,
Oh sunshine of Brazil!
