Poor John of God, after the extasy
of the love of Ancieta, he was unfaithful.
He went through three months of grave bitterness,
and after slowly suffering,
He cured himself with copal and with the capsules
of Sandalo Midy.
Later in love with the hysterical Luisa,
He became thin, and was becoming consumptive
And after a year and a half or more
He cured himself with bromine and with the ether
capsules of Clertán.
Later, disillusioned with his life,
the subtle philosopher,
He read Leopardi and Schopenhauer
and in a moment of spite,
He cured himself for good with the capsules
of lead from a gun.
