To Ronald Reagan
the Death of a Son Of a Bitch

poem by Mario Benedetti

The SOBs they live a long time, but one day they die
To Ronald Reagan
Obituary with Hurrah!
Let's celebrate it
Come everybody
The innocents
Those who have been hurt and cry during the night
Those who dream during the day
Those who suffer in their bodies
Those who keep ghosts
Those who walk barefoot
Those who curse the gods and burn with passion
The frozen poor
Those who love somebody
Those who never forget
Let's celebrate!
Come everybody
The unscrupulous is dead
The dark soul is over
The thieve
The pig
Is done forever
Hurrah!
Come everybody
We will celebrate
Let's not say
Death
Always erases everything
Purifies everything
Any day
Death
Does not erase anything
The scars
Always remain
The imbecile is dead
Let's celebrate
We will not cry as if just by habit
Let those like him cry
And swallow their own tears
The great monster is finished
Done forever
We shall celebrate
And we will not be shy
Do not believe that this one
Is just another dead man
Let's celebrate
Let's not be timid
Don't forget that this one
Is a dead son of a bitch
