Praise to the European Union

It means so much to belong to the EU...
It means work and safety regulations, laws....
It means the chance of prosperity for all, not merely for a privileged few....

And, yet, with the appearance of spring,
my neighbor stands on his balcony puffing a cigarette,
enjoying the fresh air,
the air is not really fresh,
thanks to two chemical factories and one oil refinery,

But at least,
people are enjoying their right to consume,
purchase motorcycles,
and ride them around,
creating noises that penetrate into my apartment,
and prevents me from enjoying the quiet of spring.

No, actually, now that I think about,
Spring is noisy, and always has been.
And fresh air?
You can dream of it.
