Toothless Guy

The slums are not a hotel
Life is not as you see it on the soap-operas
Heck, where's the fun
In the toothless guy's laughter?
 
Women are meant to be caressed
The wine the grapes made
The desert belongs to the camel
And the ball of thread belongs to Theseus1
 
That pleasure turns into pregnancy
Armed fights kill
In the web of intrigue
Are the Serbs and the Croats
 
All the bears hibernate
All the chests bleed
The bomb of Hiroshima
Will blow up in Angra
 
Your head is not wacky
Hair turns into braids
A pygmy dance
The poison of vengeance
 
The slums are not a hotel
Life is not as you see it on the soap-operas
Heck, where's the fun
In the toothless guy's laughter?
