A Razão dos Matraquilhos

matraquilhos
Os países têm em geral um ícone pelo qual são conhecidos internacionalmente, que acaba por ser o seu logotipo virtual: os espanhóis têm os touros (confesso que não percebo esta sua adoração por cornos), os ingleses têm o Big Ben, os franceses têm a Torre Eiffel, os brasileiros têm o carnaval e as bundinhas, os irlandeses têm a harpa, os escoceses o whisky e o monstro fictício do Loch Ness, os holandeses têm os moínhos, e assim por diante. E os portugueses, qual é o deles?
Sempre que penso no ícone dos portugueses lembro-me inevitavelmente dos matraquilhos. Acho que não há coisinha que traduza melhor a nossa portugalidade que um tabuleiro de matraquilhos: pequeninos e desajeitados, sempre tensos (reparem que os bonecos estão sempre em sentido), prontos a serem manipulados por outros, impedidos de se mexerem muito por uma barra de ferro que os atravessa a meio, sempre com o mesmo modo de actuar (para trás e para a frente), uns contra os outros a pontapear uma ridícula e velha bola de madeira, só funcionando quando se mete a moeda, e sem qualquer utilidade que não seja para alguém se divertir.
O matraquilho é Portugal em todo o seu esplendor. Sempre agarrado a uma caixa, e à espera da próxima moeda. Eleve-se a coisa a ícone nacional. Nós merecemos.
