It is not true, it is not true
that I am against everybody and everything.
This is false.
It is a wretched
I have always been on one
I have always been with the miners
the more exploited
of the earth
of whom nobody speaks about anymore
I have always been with the farmers
cuffed and murdered
thousands of times a day,
I have always been with my comrades
the comrades hacks for the contractors,
I have always been for a world that turns
sad and without love.
Ferruccio Brugnaro (Mestre, Italy, 1936) – translation by Slow Words
