The Yellow, Green, and Blue

I hear the Irishmen try to
pronounce Belo Horizonte
Beautiful Horizon, the German
national anthem sounds like a
hymn,and I try not to dislike them
as my father who was shot in the
face in WWII does and then I wait
for the Brazilian national anthem
that explodes from a thousand passionate
throats and I knew this is Brazil my only
earthly home, my people though i was
born in New England my childhood home
is this passion overcoming the professionalism
of the modern world misunderstood but
as powerful as fire, a mix of original people
freed African slaves and conquering Europeans
there is none other on earth like this passionately
patriotic people of the land of the Amazon and Futebol.
