Sezionatori d'anime giocano con il bisturi / Maggioranze boriose cercano furbi e stupidi / Sobillano i malvagi, aizzano i violenti / E gli invidiosi indispongono. Intanto Paolo VI non c'è più / È morto Berlinguer, qualcuno ha l’AIDS / Qualcuno il PRE, qualcuno è POST / Senza essere mai stato niente / Niente. Cerco le qualità che non rendono / In questa razza umana che adora gli orologi / E non conosce il tempo / Cerco le qualità che non valgono in questa età di mezzo. [G.L. Ferretti; Svegliami]
