Whether forty thousand children succumb every day

in the purgatory of hunger and thirst

whether the torture of poor bodies

debases one by one to the souls

and whether the power boasts its quarantine

or whether the poor of solemnity

are less solemn and more poor every time

It is quite serious

that only a man

or a woman

contemplate distracted the neutral horizon

but on the other hand is appalling

simply appalling

whether it is the humanity who shrugs

 Mario Benedetti
