Earn to burn in the urns of desires,
Eat, drink, sleep, xxxx, make merry
And drain the sap in the gutter holes,

which overflow to meet the dump yard

of the sea or / and add on the heaps

of the unwanted generation; Chant. Chant

the global mantra of ilu*, ilu, ilu!

Does one live by food alone?
Or in a metropolitan nightmare
Breathe some clean fresh air!
