Ode to Quetzalcóatl
Quetzalcóatl the Great
No one knew his true name, so they Called him Quetzalcóatl-feather Serpent He and his crew of nineteen: faces Strange faces, metaphors of a prince, a lord: King of the Yucatan in the year 986 AD
He was a tall man; long cloths, sandals; White as day, with a long beard, black hair. Some say red: some don't say? But they called him priest, Lord, king Amongst many things: god!. . .
Quetzalcóatl, fighter of the Maya, God-king of the Asteca-flanked By serpents; feared by kings; The god of the comet-bearer Possessor of the impassive cross ?
Serpent of the Yucatan, chief of The Tula; wizard-conquered by A wizard; fled to Cholulla! Twenty Years he nurtured his disciples: "The sons of the sun," then?
Then, those who loved vice and evil, Followed him?restrained his name, Planted evil seeds; castrated his Virtues?; pronounced him warlock: The drunken-witch of Cholulla!
And so it was?
War, iron, swords, white fine faces Yellow hair, beards-long beards They came to Mexico, these Spaniards Hernán Cortés-for assets [1519 AD] Treasures of Motecuhzoma ?
These fine face-ed-men with beards Had gunpowder, cannons, crossbows, Cavalry, steel swords and a lust for gold, Gold from Motecuhzoma in Tenochtitlán The Antediluvian City of the God's
Off the coast appeared the ship of Juan de Grijalva; so spoke the commoner Of this balanced mountain in the sea-; With disbelief, Motecuhzoma sent two Of his best men: officials to investigate
In dismay, Motecuhzoma of Tenochtitlán Had a small amount to say, of the approaching towers- As he peered from a hill looking down Down and out into the green naked sea; Now the gifts were laid at Quetzalcóatl feet
As the fleet of Cortés appeared-: 'Who were these strangers,' bellowed Motecuhzoma, accepted wisdom it was the great God Quetzalcóatl inveterate as predicted (in the Nahua year ce acatl ((1-Reed)).
Thus came a comet diminishing from the sky As Motecuhzoma watched it from his Palace in Tenochtitlán, incoherent that 'This is a sign, of Quetzalcóatl the divine. ' This was war, or submission to fate.
Motecuhzoma gave them gifts of food, Gold, bribes: so the ships would leave, Go away, never to come back to this humid Mosquito-ridden Aztec coast?; Thus, out of his gluttony-greed for gold Cortes burned his ships, his mate's hope
?then marched and reached Jalapa Pulling cannons all the way-across The Tlaxcala frontier, a nation-state Independent of Motecuhzoma- Hence, Cortes free them peace.
An ally was held for Cortes, the Greedy Spaniards: and the Talxcaltecas; Thus, soon to adhere to was destruction of The great city of Tenochtitlán? City of the Gods, City of the Dead!!
'Who are these white cruel gods?' Asked the stirring Nahuas- 'These degraded gods from the sea?' Quetzalcóatl's decedents, perhaps? More crooked than Motecuhzoma
Moving to Cholulla, the antiquated city Of Quetzalcóatl, they had a feast The long-beards and the Nahuas; Thus, the Nahuas were deceived? Unarmed, and butchered like rat meat.
And so the journey of Cortes continued Towards Tenochtitlán, past the Great Volcano, to its causeway, to the city- Down the Boulevard of the Dead---
Decedents of Quetzalcóatl
Cortes' men, "Decedents of Quetzalcóatl" So the great ruler Motecuhzoma believed: Allowed him to be captured by the foe, The Ambassadors of the cruel, for the sake Of prophecy?and so it was?!
Now a prisoner and a doll of Cortes Controlled by Spanish strings? Quetzalcóatl-Cortes bestowed many Cruelties on the city Tenochtitlán- And on the dying Aztec king
Motecuhzoma died by a anguished stone, Of his people; some say, by Cortes' knife-; Expelled by the Aztecs at Tenochtitlán Shattered in defeat, the Spaniards left- But only to arrival a different day? .

Oda para Quetzalcóatl
Aquí, amable lector, es lo que he descubierto gracias a investigación histórica.
Quetzalcóatl el Grande
Nadie sabía su verdadero nombre, así ellos lo llamaban Quetzalcóatl-Serpiente Emplumada Él y su tripulación de diecinueve: caras Caras extrañas, imágenes de un príncipe, un señor: Rey del Yucatán en el año 986 Después de Cristo.
Él era un hombre alto; túnica, sandalias; Blanco como el día, con una barba larga, pelo negro. Unos dicen rojo: otros no lo dicen ? Pero ellos le llamaron Sacerdote, Señor, Rey Entre muchas cosas: ¡dios!. . .
La vida de Quetzalcóatl
Quetzalcóatl, guerrero de los Mayas, Dios-Rey- de los Aztecas-rodeado Por serpientes; temido por reyes; El dios del cometa-portador Poseedor de la cruz de madera ?
Serpiente de Yucatán, jefe de La Tula; mago conquistado por Un mago; huyó a ¡Cholulla! Veinte años él nutrió a sus discípulos: "Los hijos del sol," entonces ?
Entonces, aquellos que gustaron vicio y mal, lo siguieron?conteniendo su nombre, Plantaron semillas malas; castraron sus Virtudes ?; declarándolo a él, brujo: ¡El brujo borracho de Cholulla!
Y entonces así fue ? .
Guerra, hierro, espadas, caras blancas blanquecinas Pelo amarillo, barbas-barbas largas. Ellos vinieron a México, estos españoles Hernán Cortés-por tesoros [1519 Después de Cristo] Los tesoros de Moctezuma ?
Estos hombres con cara blanquecina y barbas Tenían pólvora, cañones, ballestas, Caballería, espadas de acero y una lujuria por el oro, Oro de Moctezuma en Tenochtitlán La Ciudad Antigua de Dios
De la costa apareció el barco de Juan de Grijalva; entonces habló el plebeyo De esta montaña flotante en el mar-; Con incredulidad, Moctezuma envió dos De sus mejores hombres: funcionarios para investigar
Con consternación, Moctezuma de Tenochtitlán Tenía poco que decir, de las torres cercanas- Mientras él miró detenidamente hacia abajo de una colina Abajo y hacia fuera en el mar verde desnudo; Ahora los regalos fueron puestos a los pies de Quetzalcóatl
Mientras la flota de Cortés apareció-: "Quiénes son estos forasteros," gritó Moctezuma, pensando que era el grande Dios Quetzalcóatl regresando como lo predicó (en el año Nahua ce acatl ((1-Reed)).
Así vino un cometa cayendo del cielo Mientras Moctezuma miró desde su Palacio en Tenochtitlán, musitó "Esto es una señal, de Quetzalcóatl el divino. " Esto era guerra, o sumisión al destino.
Moctezuma les dio regalos de alimento, Oro, sobornó: para que los barcos se marcharan, Márchense, nunca vuelvan a esta costa Azteca húmeda, llena de mosquitos?; Así, fuera de su glotonería-avaricia por el oro Cortés quemó sus barcos, la esperanza de sus compañeros
?luego se marchó y alcanzó Jalapa jalando cañones todo el camino - a través de la frontera de Tlaxcala, una nación-estado Independiente de Moctezuma- Ahí, Cortés les ofreció paz.
Un aliado fue asegurado para Cortés, los Españoles ávidos: y los Tlaxcaltecas; Así, immediately siguió la destrucción de la gran ciudad de Tenochtitlán ? ¡¡Ciudad de Dioses, Ciudad de los Muertos!!
"¿Quiénes eran estos dioses blancos crueles?" Preguntaron los conmovedores Nahuas- '¿Estos dioses corrompidos del mar?' ¿Descendientes de Quetzalcóatl, quizás? Más corruptos que Moctezuma
Trasladándose a Cholulla, la ciudad antigua De Quetzalcóatl, ellos tuvieron un banquete Las barbas largas y los Nahuas; Así, los Nahuas fueron engañados ? Desarmados, y matados como ratas.
Y entonces el viaje de Cortés continuó Hacia Tenochtitlán, pasando el Gran Volcán, a su paso, a la ciudad- bajo la Calle de la Muerte- el guió ¡A sus barbudos sardónicos guerreros!
Descendientes de Quetzalcóatl
Los hombres de Cortes, "Descendientes de Quetzalcóatl" Eso el gran Jefe Moctezuma creyó: Permitiendo ser capturado por el enemigo, Los Embajadores de la crueldad, ¡por amor a la Profecía?y entonces así fue ?!
Ahora un prisionero y una marioneta de Cortés Controlado por cuerdas españolas ? Quetzalcóatl-Cortés legó muchas Crueldades sobre la ciudad Tenochtitlán- Y sobre el Rey Azteca agonizante.
Moctezuma murió por la penalidad de piedra, De su gente; algunos dicen, por el cuchillo de Cortés-; Expulsado por los aztecas en Tenochtitlán Devastados por la derrota, los españoles se marcharon- Pero sólo para regresar otro día? .
Nota: Dennis Siluk, es un viajero mundial y buscador de los misterios del mundo, quien nos trae a la luz al misterioso personaje de Quetzalcóatl. El estuvo en las grandes ciudades antiguas de Méjico, América Chief y Sudamérica; éste fue para el Sr. Siluk, un poema intenso para escribir, en particular, viendo quién era realmente Quetzalcóatl para las personas más allá de su siglo. Rosa Peñaloza.
