Ode to ignorance

Ignorance!
When you cast your shadow
over the earth
the world is so much easier
to manipulate
 
Ignorance!
millions will rest quitely
within your embrace
while unknowingly serving us
thinking it is great
 
come, you,
our greatest ally
bless us with your presense
and clear our wicked paths
 
your mesmerizing power
overcomes the will
of multitudes of people
with faked plastic bliss
 
Ignorance!
benevolent and poisonous
overwhelming pill
you take us to the top
you impose our will
 
Ignorane!
your fingers draw the layers
of our society
you wear the face of beauty
as perfect mockery
 
come, you,
our greatest ally
bless us with your presense
and clear our wicked paths
 
your mesmerizing power
overcomes the will
of multitudes of people
with faked plastic bliss

Arrogante ilusión

corre, trabaja y juega
sobrevive y alardea
de suizas y de bondades
de las que no tiene pruebas
 
sentado frente a la tele
el noticiero normal
le anuncia lo que hoy sucede
en el país de la paz
 
cuatro muertos por asalto
choques a más no poder
delincuencia en lo más alto
más crímenes que temer
 
en la clase gobernante
no les basta con mandar
propinas de forma urgente
tenemos que cotizar
 
no alcanza ni pa’ comer
nos dice el gobierno entrante
el salario ‘e los ministros
y esto es algo denigrante
 
pero acá entre los normales
aunque hablamos de otra gente
siempre el chorizo constante
pone birra en los picheles
 
y aunque todos nos quejamos
renegamos del regente
poco dejamos hacer
el cambio queda pendiente
 
parece que esta tiquicia
tan pintoresca y vulgar
es la que a todos los ticos
nos gusta siempre elogiar

Doom

fire falls from the sky,
water runs the streets
it smells like a tragedy,
it looks like a cliff
 
not only one chance,
but thousands of them
we could have reverted
the path to our death
 
government?, religion?
who should I blame?
just look in the mirror,
the cause will be there
 
‘cause you played blind,
you remained still
making no choice
is choosing the same
 
don’t look back now,
nostalgic regrets
the past is a memory,
the present is pain
the future is fear,
where your children will dwell
remember and grieve
but don’t ever tell
 
government?, religion?
who should I blame?
just look in the mirror,
the cause will be there
 
‘cause you played blind,
you remained deaf
making no choice
is choosing as well
 
getting rid of us all
the wound will be healed
reborn will be Earth,
life will flow again
species will rise,
extinct they will get
human race will be just
another name in the thread
