Quantos seremos?

.

.
.
.
Não sei quantos seremos, mas que importa?!
Um só que fosse, e já valia a pena.
Aqui, no mundo, alguém que se condena
A não ser conivente
Na farsa do presente
Posta em cena!
.
Não podemos mudar a hora da chegada,
Nem talvez a mais certa,
A da partida.
Mas podemos fazer a descoberta
Do que presta
E não presta
Nesta vida.
.E o que não presta é isto, esta mentira
Quotidiana.
Esta comédia desumana
E triste,
Que cobre de soturna maldição
A própria indignação
Que lhe resiste.

Blowin' In The Wind

.

.
.
How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, 'n' how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, 'n' how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
.
How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, 'n' how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
.
How many years can a mountain exist

Before it's washed to the sea?
Yes, 'n' how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, 'n' how many times can a man turn his head,
Pretending he just doesn't see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
