Those who were, no longer are
those who are, still cry
as they walk in a maze of mirrors
asking why these horrors
Does anyone remember the Clash song I’m so bored witht the USA? I readapted the song with the problems going on here in Italy.
Hope you like it.
Sicilia, mio cuore
Oggi non sono fiera di te.
Anche il cielo si chiude
E il vento si ferma.
La nostra storia di intimidazione.
Non quella che viene
raccontata al mondo,
ma quella che viviamo noi.
Passiamo dal sesso a fare l’amore,
Vuoi farlo con me?
Facciamo i giochini, tu fai il dottore
Senti il mio cuore?
Dai, vieni a letto con me,
Ma stasera non dormiamo.
Ti voglio “conoscere”…
Walk with me through gardens of roses and magnolias,
We will wash our faces in orange blossom water.
Listen to the women chant and pray as they work.
Can you hear our Arabic past?
Affection and history …
What is it worth living or die for?
Is it an Idea and it’s rightness?
or a good deal and the sake of your buisness?
One thing is out of space
it’s dying for your job,
when you’ve got to…
and I don’t believe
and I don’t believe
Grudge has spoken,
compassion has ended
Arms that saw action
are now usless to the exploiters
“We aren’t rac…

Voglio baciare le tue labbra
Voglio sentire il calore di quel bacio.
Sei oggi, e spero domani
Stai pensando a me?
Il mio solo pensiero sei…

LA MIA POLITICA
Questa e` la mia rivoluzione
Non si puo` fermare
Allora, non ci provare
I haven’t had that many profound and lasting love affairs.
Don’t get me wrong.
There have been plenty of men, and plenty of affairs.
But they came and they went again.
Only a small few stayed…
Alcuni angusti anfratti annidavano amori.
Annuiva, ansimando affannosamente,
Assecondando assalti agguerriti, alternando ansia ad armonia.
Ascanio, ancora assente, armeggiava all’aria aperta,
Unlike candles on a birthday cake, ….these shining, brilliant candles continue to burn bright long after their silent longings…
Eight years have passed
but you haven’t aged
you fought our battles
against the eight world rattlers
The city was put to shreds
by troops and coppers
that shredded the bill of rights
with their trunc…
Another day in the office
Donatella Del Zan is a woman that has it all
Top C.E.O. Of an important company that produces car components sold all over the world
She was in her early forties, thin figure, …
Mario Zanotto, the president of the FABBRICA RICAMBI MILANO, was worried.
Her daughter in law, which was also the C.E.O. of his business, wasn’t in her office.
She had to assi…
What is Mafia?
A demon of the sea of life
Awaiting and hunting those souls
who stumble in it’s tentacles
ready to extort it’s fee
It reaches all places
it’s minions occupy all spaces
The Hired Hand couldn’t care less about the strategic or the financial angle of the whole deal.
It was a lovely night
I got out for a walk
I’ve kept my habit waiting
needed to see and talk
So I went to the park
near the lousy housing estate
not knowing what fate
had stored for me in this moment…
