    In the purity of a dream.
    ( other version )

    Modest and
    eminent virtue,
    when the sun
    goes away
    and a yellowing
    leaf touches the
    ground with a
    delicate movement
    I can hear, in the
    forest, the timid
    attraction to the
    light of your fate.

    The surge of support for Fernando Haddad speaks volumes of the trust of voters place on Lula da Silva and reveals a humiliating defeat of the dishonest maneuvers cooked out by Brazil's backward dominant class.

    Like Sinibaldi illustrated above: Poetic justice at work.

    “Like Sinibaldi illustrated above: Poetic justice at work.”

    Was Sinibaldi illustrating poetic justice...?
    Is that what it was, i could have sworn he was illustrating meaningless drivel...

    With heartfelt
    conscience, I cry
    the tears of
    future loss.
    Whilst the
    cruel tempest
    redeems the
    spirit of an
    anxious thought.

    A good exercise for the mind: To read from a variety of sources from time to time.

    A couple of days ago, under thread “Brazil's 'coloured' community...” (coloured ? are they red, green, yellow ? ) you posted something to the effect of “traditional minorities”...I asked you what you meant by it. You haven't replied. Do you intend to ?

    The following makes interesting reading:
    @ForeignAffairs :

    Disgusted by the revelations of the Operation Car Wash investigation, voters in #Brazil now seek to elect a president who has no ties to corrupt politics and who can make a credible commitment to fight against it, writes Eduardo Mello.

    “The surge of support for Fernando Haddad speaks volumes of the trust of voters place on Lula da Silva...”

    'The trust the voters place on Lula da Silva' ? great, IF haddad wins, Brazil will be ruled from inside prison....just like the PCC, CV and other criminal factions.

    Reekie, the fact that you refuse to reply to my question on “traditional minorities” would indicate that not even you know who they are supposed to be...
