Sample text

Esperava-se a todo o momento um dramático apelo do rei à concórdia nacional, uma comunicação do governo anunciando um pacote de medidas urgentes, uma declaração dos altos comandos do exército e da aviação, porque, não havendo mar, marinha também não havia, protestando fidelidade absoluta aos poderes legitimamente constituídos, um manifesto dos escritores, uma tomada de posição dos artistas, um concerto solidário, uma exposição de cartazes revolucionários, uma greve geral promovida em conjunto pelas duas centrais sindicais, uma pastoral dos bispos chamando à oração e ao jejum, uma procissão de penitentes, uma distribuição maciça de panfletos amarelos, azuis, verdes, vermelhos, brancos, chegou mesmo a falar-se em convocar uma gigantesca manifestação na qual participassem os milhares de pessoas de todas as idades e condições que se encon60 61 travam em estado de morte suspensa, desfilando pelas principais avenidas da capital em macas, carrinhos de mão, ambulâncias ou às costas dos filhos mais robustos, com uma faixa enorme à frente do cortejo, que diria, sacrificando nada menos que quatro vírgulas à eficácia do dístico, Nós que tristes aqui vamos, a vós todos felizes esperamos.

As agências funerárias transitaram da euforia ao desespero, outra vez a ruína, outra vez a humilhação de enterrar canários e gatos, cães e a restante bicharada, a tartaruga, a catatua, o esquilo, o lagarto não, porque não existia outro que se deixasse levar ao ombro do dono. Tranquila, sem perder os nervos, a máphia foi ver o que se passava. Era simples. Disseram-lhe as familias, quase sempre em meias palavras, dando só a entender, que uma cousa tinha sido o tempo da clandestinidade, quando os entes queridos eram levados a ocultas, pela calada da noite, e os vizinhos não tinham precisão nenhuma de saber se permaneciam no seu leito de dor, ou se se tinham evaporado.

Entalado entre a espada e a parede, entre sila e caribdes, entre a cruz e a caldeirinha, correu a consultar o primeiro-ministro sobre o inesperado nó górdio surgido. O pior de tudo era que as cousas haviam ido demasiado longe para que se pudesse agora voltar atrás. O chefe do governo, apesar de mais experiente que o ministro do interior, não encontrou melhor saída para a dificuldade que propor uma nova negociação, agora com o estabelecimento de uma espécie de numerus clausus, qualquer cousa como o máximo de vinte e cinco por cento do número total de vigilantes em actividade que passariam a trabalhar para a outra parte.
