VERSOS> October the First
Mama told me “No you don´t go
‘cause trouble is in those streets”,
“But mama why shouldn’t I vote
when that’s the most democratic thing?”
A dream told us they would come,
they arrived with masks and black
and grinning they used batons
to stop what they couldn’t crash.
They came in black, oh yes, in dark
to stop what they never crashed.
Though on that October the First
we were on the streets
finally voting with old ladies and young girls
brave and noble mocking birds
‘cause they came in black, oh mama, in dark
to beat what they never clashed.
People casted their right
feeling they were free and thirst
for liberty is the gift we shall fight
for the upcoming of October the First
when they came in dark, oh yes, in black
to kneel and never come back.
