Marco M.Avevano ammarato il mare
per cercare di spegnerlo,
avevano eretto alte cime
per ferirlo e imprigionarlo.

Quel giorno,
lui scomparse
e si ebbe l’impressione di aver davvero vinto.

Festeggiarono ubriachi tutta la notte,
ma furono sorpresi ed amareggiati all’alba,
quando lui ritornò.
Ma ricominciarono la battaglia
e al tramonto la vinsero.

Da millenni ci provano,
hanno vinto tante battaglie,
e perse altrettante.
Non riesco a capire
come non siano ancora stanchi di
queste inutili quotidiane battaglie.

They had flood the sea
to try to extinguish it,
They had erected high peaks
to hurt and imprison him.

That day,
he disappeared,
and he had the impression that he really won.

They celebrated drunk all night,
but they were surprised and saddened at sunrise,
when he returned.
The battle started again
and at sunset they won.

Long since they try,
They have won many battles,
and lost as many.
I cannot understand
why they are not tired of
these unnecessary daily battles.

Marco M.
