  • A shipless sea swells under the caribbean sun,
    cut-off by a concrete snake curling the crumbling city

    A smell of despair blends with the humid tropical air
    and sun's rays hit the shores in pity

    Romantically the youth share their dreams upon the wall of The Unknown
    Day-dazing, imagining that which they cannot own.

    Bordered off from the infinite crossroads
    they will never get to cross

    An older generation caged souls placed on display
    performs circus tricks for fat tourists

    Convertible pesos, convertible Cadillacs
    breaking down on the Malecon

    A nation has aged on a young man's stale dream
    which dissipates like smoke at the tip of a cigar

    Silently a passionless revolution brews
    as a eulogy is being prepared

    Forcing smiles and undesired care to penetrate the resistance
    - to change
