"War, war! The patriotic pennies
In the waves of blood soaked. "
There is a war in the hearts of Mexicans
The blood runs to the Mexican border
Later, the tears of Mexicans flow
The peasants rise
As rich people go down
But blood is still flowing
And tears flow
Across Mexico

Soldiers run and are afraid
They do not know the effect of the war on Mexican people
The country is divided into two parts
Is it better to have a good dictator or a bad president?
Now, all our government is bad
We need to end the confrontation
We need to control the blood and tears
Flow, flow

Mexico is running
The country runs a new government
They run to death

The author's comments:

I originally wrote this in Spanish (see below). It is a poem that describes the tone in Mexico during the Revolution. I use a part of the Mexican national anthem for the first two lines of the poem. The parallels between objects and people represents the effect of war.


“¡Guerra, guerra! Los patrios pendones
En las olas de sangre empapad.”
Hay una guerra en los corazones de los mexicanos
La sangre corre a la frontera de méxico
Después, las lágrimas de los mexicanos fluyen
Los campesinos sube
Mientras las personas ricas bajan
Pero la sangre corre todavía
Y las lágrimas fluyen
A través de méxico

Los soldados corren y tienen miedo
No conocen el efecto de la guerra en las personas mexicanas
El país se divide en dos partes
Es mejor tener un dictador bueno o un presidente malo?
Ahora, todo nuestro gobierno es malo
Necesitamos terminar el enfrentamiento
Necesitamos controlar la sangre y las lágrimas
Fluyen, fluyen

México está corriendo
El país corren a un gobierno nuevo
Corren a la muerte
