ESE HOMBRE (Memorándum) Silvio Rodríguez (Cuba) Ese hombre que por hechos o por dichos es respetado tanto ese hombre que por dichos o por hechos es festejado tanto debiera olvidar que casi iba solo cuando desnudó aquella emoción que ahora es de todos debiera olvidar que casi iba solo cuando conquistó el cetro que hoy le ciñen a coro Ese hombre que por hechos o por dichos es escuchado tanto ese hombre que por dichos o por hechos es contemplado tanto recuerde por qué, por qué es que le quieren recuerde que ha partido de sí en pos de otros seres recuerde por qué, por qué es que le quieren recuerde que dar con una razón impone deberes Ese hombre que por hechos o por dichos es amado tanto ese hombre que por dichos o por hechos es alabado tanto se cuide de sí, se cuide de él sólo porque hay un placer perverso en creer merecerlo todo se cuide de sí, se cuide de él sólo porque el mismo don que lo levantó puede ahogarlo en lodo ***** THAT MAN (Memorandum) (English Translation) That man who for deeds or words Is so respected. That man who for words and deeds Is so celebrated, Should forget that he was almost alone When he stripped bare that emotion Which is now shared by everyone. He should forget that he was almost alone When he seized the scepter that today Is in the hands of thousands. That man who for deeds or words Is so listened to. That man who for words or deeds Is so looked at, He should remember why it is, why it is that they love him, Remember that he has left himself behind In his pursuit of other beings. Remember why, why it is that they love him, Remember that finding a reason Illuminates duties. That man who for deeds or words Is so loved, That man who for word or deeds Is so praised, Should take care of himself, take care only of himself Because there is a perverse pleasure in believing That all has been merited. Take care of himself, take care only of himself, Because the same gift which raised him on high Can drown him in mud.
