MY COUNTRY IS SO SMALL—Ernesto Gutiérrez (1929-1988)

My country is so small

that 2 000 guards prop up the Government

My country is so small
that your private life
has to be either for
or against the Government

My country is so small
that the Sr. Presidente
personally arranges
even the street fights

My country is so small
that with the rifles of the guard
any fool can govern
