La Luna

Doña Rivera, the one everybody comes to when

They run into unresolved situations

Was sold the Moon yesterday

She was very happy cause the

Salesman gave her a break

Telling her she did not have to pay tax on it

“It was tax free”

he told her

All her neighbors were surprised

That she accomplished such a big thing.

So, they assembled and celebrated

Her new fortune

They decided that Doña Rivera should

Keep it a secret or else the welfare department

Would come and take the Moon away from her

Time passed and Doña Rivera

Became a very proud woman

At night, especially when the

Moon was bright and in full view

Doña Rivera would stay up late

And admire the beauty of her new possession

On weekend

During the night

She would invite her relatives and best friends

To share the experience with them

“See”

She would tell her friends and relatives

“In this country

You have the freedom to buy

Anything you want.”
