Michael Jackson : Poeta

Cuando empezaron a arrasar con las cosas que Michael Jackson guardaba en su mítico rancho de Neverland para una subasta que se pone en marcha esta semana, se encontraron con esta preocupante perla. Una hermosa poesía grabada en piedra, que como todo el mundo sabe es el material en el que uno escribe las cosas de las que NO SE VA A ARREPENTIR. El caso es que es una poesía que habla de...bueno, la cosa empieza así.

"Niños del mundo, lo haremos.
Nos encontraremos en las orillas infinitas"...

Carambita. Este es el verso que se repite a modo de estribillo.

" Niños del mundo, lo haremos.
Con cantos y bailes y alegría inocente
y con la dulce caricia de un beso suave.
Lo haremos".

Esto es lo que Michael Jackson ha labrado. En una piedra. En su casa. Y lo ha dado a subastar. Os transcribo el poema entero, en V.O. , que da para comentar para todo el año. Y echadme una mano con la pasta que esto iba a quedar muy bien decorando el patio de mi cole...

Children of the world, we'll do it
We'll meet on endless shores
Making sandcastles and floating our boats
While people fight and defend their point of view
Forever putting on masks that are new
We'll swing the tide of time and do it.

Children of the world, we'll do it
With song and dance and innocent bliss
And the soft caress of a loving kiss
We'll do it.

While traders trade and haggle their price
And politicians try so hard to be nice
We'll meet on endless shores and floating our boats
We'll do it.

While lawyers argue and doctors treat
Stockbrokers quote the price on meat
While preachers preach and ring the bell
Carpetbaggers with something to sell
We'll sing and dance in innocent bliss
With the soft caress of a loving kiss
We'll do it.
Meeting on endless shores
Making sandcastles and floating our boats
We'll do it.

We'll ride the rainbow, a cloud, a storm
Flying in the wind, we'll change our form
We'll reach the stars, embrace the moon
We'll break the barrier and be there soon

While architects plan their buildings high
And trade unions raise their hue and cry
While boardroom squabbles generate heat
And in secret places dealers meet

We'll sing and dance in innocent bliss
And the soft caress of a loving kiss
We'll do it.

While philosophers grapple and continue to tackle
Endless dilemmas of body and mind
Physicists wander, continue to ponder
Perennial questions of space and time
Archeologists survey, continue to dig
Bygone treasures small and big

Psychologists probe, analyze the tears
Of hysterical notions, phobias, fears

While priests take confessions
In a serious session
And people struggle
In the hustle and bustle
In the noise and din
On the meaning of sin
We'll touch the stars, embrace the moon
Break the barrier, arrive there soon
Ride the rainbow, the cloud, the storm
Flying in the wind, changing our form

Children of the world, we'll do it
With song and dance and innocent bliss
The soft caress of a loving kiss
We'll do it.
