A time of absolute folly
Folie for the French, folia is the Brazilian way
To talk of five days of unrestrained joy
In English there is a word that brilliantly describe
What Carnival lovers do best
They revel in the the national period of Carpe diem
Or in simpler English - YOLO must be your life guide
By unchaining yourself of concerns and oblihations
You revel and rebel - to hell with life's problems!
No need for dress code - forget the social mode
A once in a lifetime chance to break the mold.
But Carnival is not the only time to revel and rebel
To revel is to find joy, to live to the full
So why not...
Revel in your strengths, rebel against your fears
Revel in your family and friends, rebel against hate and disunity
Revel in what you do, rebel against accomodation
Revel in dreams come true, rebel against abandoned dreams
Revel in our diversity, rebel against animosity
Revel in others' success, rebel against spite and envy
Revel the precious gift of life, rebel against all that threatens it.
What do you revel in and what do you rebel against?
