Poetry is unstoppable! New video submission!

There is nothing better to start the day with good vibes than a little bit of Poetry.

Today, we got a video submission straight out of Lisbon, the sunny capital of Portugal. The author  is Beatriz Canas Mendes, a 20-year-old Chinese-Filipino-Portuguese descendant, who decided to share an incredibly sarcastic poem from the Portuguese poet Alexandre O’Neill to share her culture with us.

O’Neill was a very prominent literary artist in Portugal, connected to the surrealistic movement, and wrote the poem”Shame on you, boys” in 1969.

Watch it, enjoy it and give us your thoughts about it.

And, most importantly: DO NOT FORGET TO VOTE IN YOUR FAVOURITE POEM! The competition ends on the 22nd of April!
