Trégua na Lava-Égua


Artigo no Alerta Total – www.alertatotal.net
Por Carlos Maurício Mantiqueira

Tédio: eleição e ludopédio.

Enquanto um mau candidato escolho, outros põem as barbas de molho.

Na Inglaterra há um palácio chamado Mentmore.

Aqui, vence o pleito quem mente mais.

Pro povo, à política pouco afeito, quanto maior a mentira, maior o efeito.

Com as atuais regras eleitorais o país não tem jeito.

Seja alcaide, burgomestre ou prefeito, o eleito age como idiota perfeito.

A proibição de prisão dá a muitos, alívio.

Aos bigodes de merdandante e Olívio, um novo lustro que não os obrigue a movimento brusco.

“Después”, em fila indiana, muita gente no passado, bacana.

Em Cannes, Punta Cana ou praia mexicana, breve temporada à pão e banana.

Quem só pensava em ouro, hoje já não dá no couro.

Se não pirar como pirarucu, em breve tomará na rima.

Pior só em ilha grega; com vulcões e a companhia da galega.

Um vacilo e do sulino touro lhe espera a chifrada sem pose; triste fim de uma “vie en rose”.

De um governo cruel, lacaio, de tanto rir me desmaio.

PERSPECTIVE

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live.

They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?"

"It was great, Dad."

"Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked.

"Oh yeah," said the son.

"So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father.

The son answered:

"I saw that we have one dog and they had four.

We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end.

We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night.

Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.

We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight.

We have servants who serve us, but they serve others.

We buy our food, but they grow theirs.

We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them."

The boy's father was speechless.

Then his son added, "Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are."

Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have..

Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your family and friends!

Pass this on to friends and acquaintances and help them refresh their perspective and appreciation.


"Life is too short and friends are too few."
