Un banco, un hombre, una historia

Elena Baeza Berruti.

bancoMúsica en el equipo, la casa calentita, la una y media de la tarde, la comida lista para ser servida. Haciendo tiempo, mi madre se asomó a la ventana. Al poco me avisó de algo. En el banco de abajo, en la calle, había un hombre con aspecto de indigente en mal estado. Me asomé; ya estaba la ambulancia con el personal del SAMUR social, un chico y una chica y la Policía Municipal, tres agentes. El hombre del banco no se podía mover y estaba sentado sin poder levantar la cabeza. Parecía ser una monumental cogorza, pero me preocupó que fuera algo peor. Pensé: el SAMUR lo valorará y decidirá.

La médico se agachó a su altura (la del banco) para hablarle y el policía que tenía el brazo en su hombro lo soltó un momento y el hombre se venció hacia delante. Decidieron tumbarlo como pudiesen y la cabeza quedó fuera del banco. Siguieron atendiéndole y preguntándole lo que debían preguntarle. Lo que se suele hacer en estos casos es trasladar a estas personas a un hospital o a un centro social adecuado. Pero el SAMUR no puede hacer nada si no hay consentimiento y si no hay peligro inminente para el “paciente”, o como se diría en el sistema, el “usuario”… ¡qué ironía!

El día estaba más que nublado negro. Se presentaba lluvia y más que fresco. Alguien le colocó una manta encima y el hombre quedó así tumbado en el banco… se dormía sin remedio por momentos. La ambulancia se fue, sin nada más por hacer, y la policía tenía que seguir su guardia y también se fue, no sin mirar atrás… Debía de ser un tipo simpático. ¡Qué curioso!… Los nubarrones por momentos se retiraron y no se sabe cómo, asomó un sol incluso cálido que veló el sueño del hombre.

Sobre las tres de la tarde ocurrió algo verdaderamente penoso. El hombre cayó del banco, todo lo alto que era, con la manta revuelta y los zapatos uno aquí y otro allá. Pero nada de esto turbó su sueño, y quedó tirado en posición fetal, ahí en medio del pavimento. Pasó un hombre con un chaquetón muy planchado en tono claro, con pelo cano, alto y erguido. Miró de soslayo, pero sin posar la mirada, sin doblar el cuello. Pasó de largo. Pasó un joven vestido de negro, con un maletín de ordenador… No miró, ni siquiera se percató de que había un hombre en el suelo. Pasó un chico con pinta de moderno ecologista, un poco pasota, por el desliño de su indumentaria y de su camiseta en particular. El pelo medio rasta. No miró, tenía prisa. Pasó una mujer africana vestida con chaquetón de leopardo, con una niña con sus moños y sus trencitas vestida de marca, en rosa chicle. A ellas las esperaba un morenazo (lo digo por lo grande que era) con chaquetón de ante, en un coche muy bonito. Casi lo rozan, pero era invisible, de todas formas… Finalmente, alguien se apiadó del hombre, y debió de llamar de nuevo al SAMUR, porque aparecieron como por arte de magia. Curiosamente se trataba del mismo equipo del mediodía. Entre los dos hicieron reaccionar al hombre tendido y consiguieron despejarlo lo suficiente del sueño como para incorporarlo al banco, lo cual no fue tarea fácil. Retomaron la manta y se la pasaron por los hombros. La médico se sentó a su lado (en una postura relajada, con los antebrazos apoyados en las piernas, exactamente como estaba él) intentando convencerle de que les acompañara. El hombre sacó un cigarrillo, pero era tal su estado que no acertaba a encenderlo. Finalmente, así sentado lo dejaron los sanitarios, que tuvieron que irse.

Todavía le quedaba alcohol en el cuerpo para tres días y seguía tambaleándose pero alguien se sentó a su lado, impidiéndole de ésta forma caer de nuevo en los brazos de Morfeo. Este otro visitante del banco venía con una maleta pequeña y por las ropas que vestía parecía llegar de algún sitio más cálido. Se puso a charlar de forma tranquila y amable con el hombre que debió de pedirle fuego para su maltrecho cigarrillo, porque el viajero se levantó con cierto ímpetu, acudió a un comercio cercano y volvió con un mechero con el que encendió el pitillo del hombre. A continuación lo puso entre las manos del indigente que hizo ademán de no querer aceptar tan lujoso regalo, pero ante la insistencia del viajero, aquel aceptó. El hombre le dio las gracias de corazón y el viajero siguió su rumbo. Ya el hombre debió de encontrarse mejor y en un momento dado se levantó y se fue.

Nada más se ha sabido de él por aquí. Solo sé que se quedó la manta en el banco, que no quiso llevarla como equipaje, que iba ligero de obligaciones, y que a la media hora, esas nubes que le habían dado una tregua respetando por lo menos el sueño de un inocente, empezaron a descargar agua reciamente. Anochecía y la manta quedó extendida en el banco, mojada por completo, pero nuestro amigo… ya no estaba.

  23. Wow, great blog article.Much thanks again. Fantastic.

  24. I cannot thank you enough for the blog post. Much obliged.

  25. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  26. I genuinely appreciate this post. I’ve been searching all over for this! Thank goodness I discovered it on Bing. You’ve produced my day! Thanks once again

  39. Thank you for the input under the 3 video’s.My understanding is:1. Roman Statute Law is a deliberate Paper Money Generator imposed on the largely ignorant masses. The cabal buys gold with paper. America is run on executive orders and the congress and the senate are largely patsies to the banking cabal who pull the strings. Now we have the Fascist Fourth Reich appearing in USA. with Fascist based Corporations calling the tune. (Did the Nazi Third Reich lose World War II ~ yes on the surface they did to Russia, but underground they have thrived as that has been their hidden agenda all along.2. Natural Law has been bastardised by Roman Statute Law.3. Roman Law is attempting to do the same to Cosmic Law.4. Common Law as identified under UTCCS.org is alive and well but yet again the largely ignornant masses are their own worst enemy.5. In South Africa (also a colony like America and Turtle Island -Canada) the Roman Dutch English Laws are a minefield.6. Norton Rose has moved in Lock Stock & Barrel to extract financial gain and has become the largest bunch of Lawysters in town.7. I view both Banksters and their accompanying Lawysters in very negative light.8. The whole economy runs under the hidden “North Star Project” (Anglo~America) were the National Party supported by the Cabal where told to morph into the ANC (African National Corruption) ~ which they did ~ And now we have a rape artist in the form of Doom & Gloom Zuma as our corrupt President ~ one who is always looking for new wives and feathering his own nest!!! With the result we are virtually a failed state.9. This is a MultiMillenial Reptillian Agenda in play ~ except the positive time lines are now kicking in and the cabal is running out of options especially when they play checkers against a good chess player like Putin. The Zionists are determined to start World War IV (for the ignorant we have been in World War III since the end of World War II). The Israelis even admit to putting troops into Ukraine to reclaim what they consider to be their homeland. Now that Kiev has adopted Hebrew as the second language we see Gog and Magog in full transparent operation.Best regardsJames HyslopSouth Africa
