A Kiss On The Forehead

A kiss on the forehead

Is a gesture of betrayal

It's not a kiss of love

Filled with joy and humor.


It would be better to kiss a dog

Which is as silent as a wandering

Moron in the Latin quarters.


Oh! Poor are those who smile

To these words emanating from a place

Where everyone has atavistic rights

Despite the silly threats of the accursed.


A kiss on the forehead

Is a sign of punishment

It is an act of treason.
