My Kind of Dictator
By Elson T. Elizaga

Every morning, my kind of dictator
Takes a grip of his penis
And asks if freedom is alive
In his country.
And every morning, his penis
Stands up and says: Yes,
Because your balls
Carry the balance of justice.

Mi Querido Dictador

Todas las mañanas mi querido dictador
Agarra su pene
Y se pregunta si la libertad está viva
en su pais.
Y todas las mañanas el pene
se levanta y dice: si.
Debido a que los testiculos
llevan el balance
de la justicia.


"My Kind of Dictator" was written in 1986 or 1987, and was kindly translated into Spanish by a beautiful señorita who insists that she doesn’t want to be associated with it because she said it’s “shit”.

The poem and its translation were published in an anthology in August 2017. Unfortunately, an error had caused the line breaks to change.
