Dick - Detetive


Detetive is a traditional southern Brazilian group Nin-Jitsu Community, a martial arts cult commune known for their thought provoking commentary on world affairs, in an interesting mix of music and interpretive dance.

In this poem, the high priest commune's frontman Bro Mudanças, confides in a friend about his dad's job, being a Dick (possibly for the Brazilian police), and compares his dad's daily life to his friend's dad's life, who leads a much saner lifestyle by being a broker. While sounding like boasting to the untrained eye, the use of the verb "to have" in the past tense, the implied message that his dad partakes in ritualistic offerings (by saying that the broker is unable to do so), and citing the morbid possibility of being HIV Positive, Bro Mudanças is actually showing us that he's prepared for his dad's inevitable death on the job, and his dissatisfaction at his dad's apparent disregard for his own life.

While the Commune is based in Alvorada, the 3rd safest city in Brazil (with a relatively low homicide rate of 44 homicides per 100k residents per year), it is a perfectly reasonable concern to the familiies of those employed in Law Enforcement. On top of the inherent risk of being an LEO, his dad's vacations on Far West re-enactments, where usually live ammunition is used during duels, further displays his disregard for his life.


[chorus]
Had Had
Dick
My dad is a dick
Had
Dick
My dad is a dick
Had
Dick
My dad is a dick
But your dad is a broker!

My dad is a dick
And faces legal issues
Your dad is a broker
And doesn't do much
My dad is a dick
Arrests robbers and drug dealers
Your dad is a wuss
That hides behind bookshelves

[chorus]

My dad's a dick
Entered the robber's home
Fired a shot at point blank
That broke the telly
Your dad's a broker
And his a simpleton
Won't even do voodoo offerings
And is afraid of wakes

[chorus]

My dad's a dick
Knows all the cops
Your dad's a broker
And is an habitué of The Booze Breath
My dad's a dick
And doesn't deal with cupcakes
And your dad, seriously
I think he fries tiny Berliners

[chorus]

Had Had
Positive
HIV Positive
Had Positive
HIV Positive
Had Positive
HIV Positive
But mine's negative!

My dad's a detective
And he's been to Punta del Este
And knows the entire Brazil
And takes holidays on the Far West
Your dad's a broker
And works at Grande Venda
On Thursdays he goes to Paraguay
To smuggle G-Shock watches

[chorus]
