The Pemones from Gran Sabana call the dew Chirïké Yetaakú, that means Saliva of the Stars; the tears Enú Parapüé, meaning Juice of the Eyes, and the heart Yewán Enapué: Seed of the Womb. The Waraos, from Orinoco's delta, say Mejokoji (The Sun of the Chest) to name the soul. To say friend they say Ma Jokaraisa: My other Heart. And to say forgetfulness they say Emonikitame, that means forgiveness.
The fools don't know what they say
To say earth they say mother
To say mother they say tenderness
To say tenderness they say surrender
They are so confused
the kind people we are
we call them savages.
