The courtiers
Jubilant sitting again
on the bench of my memories
Passed again from my mind
slowly and agonizingly
as in an ancient tragedy
the masks of the modern powers
boasting of their shame
for their illegally motives
who flatter to take the reins.
Deceive human consciences and refute the sacred values
Let them not celebrate
Nemesis and Divine Judgment…
