Giants and Dwarves

Our vessel sailed the river Río de la Plata
and with a load of flour,
                            [headed towards Calcutta.

The Pacific Ocean denied its name

and with huge waves
      [that name managed to defame....

Poets and writers
                   [very often misled me,
so I became a prisoner of the sea...

      "Smell the sea,
                      [and feel the sky
      let your soul & spirit fly.."

Van Morrison
       [didn't mention the word cry,

the famous Van Morrison
                                    [in his song.

      Believe me, I am not wrong......

      Longfellow writes that "the heart of the ocean
      sends a thrilling pulse through me."

                                                         [so set in motion
      the imagination of young people and mine....

 After one month journey,
                                [an Albatross was the sign
   that..... we were approaching the shore.

   We, forty dwarves, maybe a little more,
   we the crew.....temporarily won
                            [against the Giant Ocean.

Ι shaved, put on my face after shave lotion
and together with my fellow sailors,
                      we went looking for hookers..

   The next day a bunch of Indian troopers
   came to guard the flour
                                  [and boarded the ship.

   While the Indian officer
                     [was drinking coffee sip by sip,
   he greeted me,
                        [saying hello Indo-European.

   Ι answered Hello dude,

                   but I am a Greek, a Mycenaean..
   I was born where the civilization was born.
   The Indo-European theory
                                           [died at the dawn
   of the decryption of the DNA,
   and after that ended
                the storytellers sway..

The result of this
                   [newly discovered analysis proves
59,000 years continuity of the Greeks
                                         [and lies disapproves...

Indo-Europeans, The second half of the 18th and early 19th century. developed by French Coeurdoux (1767), the Englishman William Jones (1786) and by the Germans Fr. Schlegex (1772-1829) and Fr. Bopp (1791-1867) theory of Indo-Europeans.

In theory people from India went to Europe and the 3rd BC millennium arrived in the Ural Mountains and others went to the D. Europe and others since 2000 BC They began to descend to the southern part of the Balkan peninsula as Ionians in 1800 BC as Achaeans and 1100 BC as Dorians.
Later it was seen as the cradle of Indo-European peoples or Iapetus (including other than Europeans and Indians and Armenians, Persians and Afghans) The northern or central Europe and others went east to India and others through the valley of Axios until Greece . That's why there are common words.
Indo-European theory reject recent research of DNA, made by universities in Europe and America, in which he participated and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and had the aim to investigate the biological roots of European populations.
Investigations have shown that the Greeks by 75-80% have Paleolithic origin to 80,000 years ago and by 20-25% Neolithic 9000-3000 BC.
