Poem

Dellos especialistes
falen d’intelixencia de grupu.
Nun conozo rebañu dalu
regaláu col Premiu Nobel
de lliteratura
-nin de medicina-.
El mundiu enteru ta acoyonáu
con un enemigu desconocíu,
tarrecible y silenciosu,
y dellos,
tan camentando namái
con qué van a llimpiase’l so culu.
Naguaba por escribir un poema,
pero nun atopo les pallabres.

English Translation

Some experts
speak about collective intelligence.
I do not know any herd
awared with the Nobel Prize
in Literature
-or in Medicine-.
The entire world is scared
about an unknown,
fearsome and silent enemy,
and some people
are thinking only about
with what they will clean their ass.
I would desire to write a poem,
but I cannot find the words.
