The poem in question reads like this:

"Aroma Friday,

He who has no silver does not take,

And with this situation you can not invent 'joke,

Because with the shortage it is probable that neither coma,

Also although it has rial it has to make tail pate,

And pa 'can' buy 'my brother must find a lot of ball,

And now do not sell several sell you is a single,

A single bread flour and if there is milk a pearl,

Whether visiting the Chinese, bicentennial or mercantile,

You get a tail that you do not see the end,

The tremendous thing is that people do not know if they will buy,

Well when they get inside the main thing is over,

Government and opposition,

They blame each other,

And they offer no solution,

They fight for the coroto,

I tell you if there is consolation,

There is neither unity nor bad revolution,

Comes from the God of heaven,

If we unite and pray to him."
