Peta mannara

Rota, Rota
da secoli
te ne stai tranquilla
tra le montagne,
chissà, quanti segreti nascondi!
Nell’inverno 56 /57
mio nonno Francesco
mi raccontava…
che a Lui raccontavano
i nonni e così via,
una storia antica,
viveva in una casupola
più o meno a babilonia,
un pastorello, ogni dì
portava al pascolo
capre e pecore
su, a Peta mannara
ancora oggi
c’è un grosso masso.
 
Allora c’era una grotta
spesso la usavano come riparo,
un mattino presto vide
salire, uomini armati
con cavalli,
trainavano carretti,
si spaventò,
fuggi via e si nascose.
 
La sera dopo, al’imbrunire,
vide che scendevano
andavano via,
curioso, sali a peta mannara
e li, rimase sbalordito
tutto franato
la grotta non c’era più!
Scese a valle
lo racconto
ma tutti dissero
spesso, avvengono le frane
e dei personaggi,
nessuno li avevano visti
tutti dimenticarono.
Nonno, finiva la storiella
canticchiando
Peta, Peta
sei hai l’oro
apri e fammi entrare…
Peta, Peta
dammi il tesoro!
 
Ora mi viene un dubbio?
E se fosse vero,
quei personaggi
erano i fedeli
di Alarico, re dei visigoti
nella grotta misero
il suo corpo
e tutto il tesoro razziato?
 
La legenda dice Cosenza,
no, no
a l’epoca era già una cittadina,
troppi occhi, c’erano!
