Kidnapped


For my dear brothers from the Group of the 75.

They snatched me from the arms of Yolanda, from the heart of the family, and from the social environment.

I am a hostage of intolerance, of repression, and of cynicism.

Castro-ism and its hangmen, felony, demagoguery, and infamy all incriminate me.

I am attacked by diseases, hypocrisy, discord, and a vile system of slavery.

I live badly amongst rodents, besieged by insects, tropical rigors, and amorality.

I survive denunciation, espionage, harsh treatment, and human miseries.

My life continues through truth, freedom, justice, and love.

Pedro Arguelles Moran. July 2008. Provincial Prison of Canaleta. Ciego de Avila.
