Overflowing in verses
I make an appeal:
following with this sloppiness,
We're going to end the world.

I'm not Raimundo * either,
but for the Drummond I appeal, *
with a simple poem
and a deep feeling.

I'm rhyming step by step
and in the middle:
I slip in a deforestation ...
See the violent tone
with which the fire destroys
the vegetation ...

How it hurts ...
See living beings being destroyed
by fire.
We, who are moved,
try to alert the distracted:

Beneath this pile of garbage,
are our lives.
Or we stop this violence,
or we will end up begging for mercy:

Forgive us, O Mother Nature ...
After so much beauty,
what we left to the future
are cars, jewels, mansions ... Garbage.

* Carlos Drummond de Andrade
In: Poem of Seven Faces



A poet, a dreamer, a seeker, a hippie, a anarchist... I do not know! A hobo, trying to improve the world. Click to see original Image in a new window
