Excerpt

sso nun è gnente.


LA CORSA DE LE BIGHE A VILLA BORGHESE.

ER VINCITORE.

Quann'agnedi da la diputazione, A pijà' la corona e la bandiera, Avevi da sentì' che sonajera D'applausi e si che straccio d'ovazione!

E, intanto che passavo, le persone (Che de gente Dio sa quanta ce n'era!) Me tiraveno addosso mele, pera, Sigheri, fiori e cocce de limone.

E io vestito da antico romano, Co' la corona d'oro su la fronte, Me facevo er mi' giro piano piano.

Stavo sur carro come er re Fetonte; Co' l'érmo in testa, co' la frusta in mano... Parevo tale e quale Orazio ar ponte!

ER PERDITORE.

So' rivato seconno, so' 'rivato! Subito che li possino ammazzalli Me diedero du' capre pe' cavalli, Come avevo da fa', Cristo beato?

Fu un miracolo si nun so' restato A mezza strada... Avevi voja a aizzalli; Ma gnente! Avevi voja de sterzalli, D'abrivalli... macché! Tempo buttato.

Io pe' me je lo dissi ar mi' padrone: Fateme sta fine
