The Always' and the Nevers' imposed by those from above

Beneath, the nuisances appear now and again.

To the national and international press:
Ladies and gentlemen:

The letter goes to the national PRI concerning the filth of the chiapaneco PRI, as does a communique concerning the atrocities which they are committing in the southeastern sierra and coast. Without comment.

Vale.
Salud and, is there punishment for a crime of such immensity?

P.S. The great festivities continue! Now the gift is the story the Sailor-Sup calls ...

Always and Never against Sometimes

Once upon a time there were two times. One was called One Time and the other was called Another Time. One Time and Another Time made up the family By Times, who lived and ate from time to time. The dominant empires were Always and Never which, as is clear, hated unto death the family By Times. Neither Always nor Never could tolerate the existence of By Times. They would never allow One Time to live in their kingdom because Always would then cease to be so, because if there is One Time now, then there is not Always. Nor could they permit Another Time to appear once more in their kingdom because Never cannot live with One Time, and even less if that One Time is Another Time. But One Time and Another Time were time and again bothering Always and Never. And so it went until they were always left in peace so that Always and Never never again bothered them. And One Time and Another Time were playing time and again. "Do you see me?" One Time asked, and Another Time answered: "Don't you see?" And so they were very happy from time to time, you see. And they were always One Time and Another Time and they never stopped being By Times. Tan, tan.

Moral 1: By times it is very hard to distinguish between one time and another.

Moral 2: Never say always (well, sometimes, yes)

Moral 3: The "always'" and the "nevers'" are imposed from above, but below are "the nuisances" time and again which, by times, is another way of saying "the different ones," or, from time to time, "the rebels."

Moral 4: I am never going to write a story like this again, and I always do what I say (well, sometimes, no).

Vale encore.
Salud and, by times, the always and the nevers come from below (from the womb, for example).

The Sup once and again battling with his shirt buttons (long live tshirts!). (From "beach," you understand). (And, "de trigo," which I prefer).
