    An Aztec poem declares:

    “The giver of life mock of us
    only a dream we chase
    oh my friends
    our hearth trust
    But he really mock of us
    but with emotion we enjoy
    in the green things and in the paintings
    The giver of life make us live
    he knows, he rules
    how we, the men, will die
    nobody, nobody, nobody
    really lives on earth.”
