Fidel Castro, miserable
Cuban history will not absolve him.
Ill born and a thousand times unfit,
Cuba and history have already condmned him.
His murders, intolerable,
On the tugboat March Thirteenth,
Were recorded and remain indelible
In the conscience of Cuba’s people.
Evil dictator , more
His demise speeds up the closer it approaches;
Men, women, and children, innocent.
And a people suffering
the throes of his clutches
Claim a just and forthwith end to the pain;
The end of him, bloody tyrant of darkness.

In memory of the sinking of the tugboat "Trece de Marzo" (March Thirteenth), in the waters off the bay of Havana, which carried more than seventy Cubans who were fleeing to freedom, forty-two of whom died, among them twenty-one innocent children, who were slaughtered by thugs and assassins of Fidel Castro’s obscene tyranny.
