El Tres de Mayo

Goya Shootings

Title: El Tres de Mayo

innocent countrymen
to slaughter led
their struggles in
of liberty’s demand made

while in riches draped
the diminutive general
spits words, death
at a distance, safe

ache garbs my heart
cruel, unfair this loss of life
boils my heart
hierve mi alma
