Italy Republic Day 2021 Video Rap Italian Spoken Word Poetry

Republic Day / Public thing day

Birthday of a State / in which those who defended and protected us must be thanked

But then you need a parade / where you can see the heroes of the day

Which for them means the whole year / even if many don't know it

They are invisible soldiers who fight / and in trenches called lanes they throw themselves

Many of them from the front do not return / but they do not receive the medals and honors they deserve

When a real enemy has finally arrived / they were the first to defend that state

Because we are the latter / they are the state / we are all that / we should remember

About these bitter years / in which to understand who is seriously willing / to fight for us and our loved ones

They don't have ranks or badges / but a white uniform with a pair of gloves and the usual masks

There are no captains or generals / they have no rifles or nuclear bombs

They are called nurses and doctors / physicians and caregivers

People who work day and night / to defeat that virus called death

And when Covid joined the enemy list / once again they became our best friends

Many of them in this war have given a lot / some their own lives

Tell me who else can be called saint / or even just heroes to be celebrated before a crowded square

It would be the ideal / honest / fair / parade to show to people

The unarmed forces / which deserves the applause of a grateful country
