the sound of the people
died out long ago
but it still rings in your head;
the promise of a new beginning
hidden in a culture
lost to the ages
and ridiculed,
scorned.

but for you
for us
the song never truly dies

so we close our eyes
and take a breath
and content ourselves
with the sound of Bohemia
ringing in our heads

“Per vencidarmi,
affogo un Faraon!”
