Lefties (Regueirão dos Anjos)

regueirao dos anjos
Why do some of the best ideas
have to be expressed
by the scrawniest looking people?

Poor diets with a lack of protein
may well have created
a new and strange race
of skinny, unwashed bums
who dream of changing the world
but struggle to change their underwear

but I prefer these lefties to most
and drink wine with them
inside a garage in Lisbon
as we rant on about
the state of the world,
the state of their trousers
is yet be discussed.

Perhaps in an ideal world,
we would think like the left
and dress like the right,
sharing the wealth harmoniously
in beautifully designed
tidy garments that fit perfectly.
