Inspired by Sujit Sinha, I herewith enclose a rebellious tanka in Spanish
and English (not exactly identical as it is often the case in translation)
against the corona and fascist pandemia.

Tanka Rebelde

Escuché hoy el
primer trino del alba
primaveral que
desafía el paso
sombrío de la peste
Listened .today
the first trill at daybreak, it
is Spring defying
the somber goosesteps of
virus and political pests
