Modern Times - Poem by Ricardo Antunes

Woman of the Year, be it a celebrity
Or an ingenue on the rise, as activist
Notions of goodwill to empower
Someone special and bringing attention
As she empowers herself to find herself

To bring good cause and her celebrity
On the rise as Woman of the Year
With Tracy and Hepburn... A duo playing
Off each other watching a Yankee game
Where there is no fatigue in mutual in goodwill

Comraderie amongst the sexes... I hope
You find your Tracy someday, and in ways
I'd hope it would be me... But an ingenue grows
Up like a flower blossoming upwards
Toward the sun, and once cared for to maturity

To be plucked of its petals,
Does she love me yes, does she love me no,
I don't know, I hope so that one day we could
Walk arm and arm with each other
Toward the horizon as Chaplin had before

Toward a bright and sunny time of a future way
In hope of good days in the Modern Times
