Café con pan

Bring on the young soldiers
The ones who look in fear as you slap your wife across the face because dinner was cold
Bring on the young soldiers who then slap their classmates as you get mad when their teacher calls you.
“Don’t you know you are not supposed to slap people?”
(Tituá)

Bring on the young soldiers who dream of Nikes and other brand names I can’t even pronounce
As you struggle to make the rent, the car payment, the ballet class
Bring on the young soldiers who are always bore even though they sleep at Chuckie Cheeses
Ratones voladores
Ratones con alas
Ratones que odian el queso

Bring on the young soldiers who eat café con pan because there is no other food for breakfast
Lunch or dinner
Bring on the young soldiers
Hold them tight
Bring on the young soldiers
Don't fight
Bring on the young soldiers 
Café con pan,
Café con pan,
Bring me café con pan
