                                            Dear Primo Rivera,

During the day I play,                                                 
But during the night I hide.                                      

All you see is smoke,                                           
All you hear are cries.                                          

All you see are boys playing,                                     
scared to fall.                                                           

During the day I see life,                                               
but during the night I see people die.
