Asleep, or in a coma?

A poem by John C. Broome

Asleep, or in a coma?

WAKE UP ARGENTINA!!

Look at your capital with its tree-lined cobblestone streets, its beautiful boulevards, its stately parks with such grand statuary, and mile after mile of grand buildings.  It is the rival of any city in the world.  Look at the vast expanse of your beautiful countryside.

Your men are handsome, friendly, and have a real grace.  Your women are the world’s beauties and have a class all their own.

Your wines, your beef, your leather goods, your grains, are all first-rate.  Your polo players and your soccer players set the standard for all the others. 

Your history and your culture should be studied by all the world’s peoples, to be a benchmark for their own.

WAKE UP ARGENTINA!!

Where is your self-confidence??  Where has it gone?

Where are the throngs of tourists partaking of what you have to offer and leaving their money to bolster your economy?  They are elsewhere.  Why not in Argentina?

Where are your wine and beef and leather goods in the United States and the other world markets?  I find none.  Chilean?  Yes!  Argentine?  No!  Why?

WAKE UP ARGENTINA!!

Sell yourself and what you have to offer.  Be as prosperous as you have been in the past.

Clean up your streets.  Erase your graffiti.  Show your visitors and yourself what you really are.  You are better then filth.

A public official who takes a bribe or absconds with public funds is a common thief.  Jail him.  He is killing your economy and your pride as a nation.

WAKE UP ARGENTINA!!

You are better then Banana Republic corruption.

I have just had the privilege of an extended stay in your country.  I love Argentina.  I love the Argentines.

WAKE UP ARGENTINA!!

Share with the world what you are.  Share what you have shared with me.  You are the best kept secret on the planet!!

WAKE UP ARGENTINA!!  PLEASE!!
