To the tune of Guantanamera.
I wrote this in 2006 after I realized that "guantanamera" means "of Guantanamo (female)". "Guantanamero" means "of Guantanamo (male)". The words are in Spanish, but I have included an English translation. I thank Francisco Villa for his help.

Richard Stallman
Me odiaba mi primo
Por celos a mi carrera.
Lo arrestaron y dijo
Que terrorista yo era.

Guantanamero, soy preso guantanamero.
Guantanamero, soy preso guantanamero.

Ha decidido el imperio
Tenerme por siempre preso
Y la cuestión es hacerlo
Con o sin falso proceso.

Guantanamero, soy preso guantanamero.
Guantanamero, soy preso guantanamero.

Cuando me hieren el cuerpo,
Dicen que no me torturan.
Causan heridas profundas
De esas que nunca se curan.

Guantanamero, soy preso guantanamero.
Guantanamero, soy preso guantanamero.

No me permiten que duerma:
Mi fin no es un misterio.
Voy a salir cuando muera
O caiga el gran imperio.

Guantanamero, soy preso guantanamero.
Guantanamero, soy preso guantanamero.

English translation by RMS
GUANTANAMERO

My cousin hated me;
He was jealous of my career.
They arrested him and he said
I was a terrorist.

Guantanaman, I'm a Guantanaman prisoner.
Guantanaman, I'm a Guantanaman prisoner.

The empire has decided
To keep me in prison forever.
The question is whether to do it
With or without a fake trial.

Guantanaman, I'm a Guantanaman prisoner.
Guantanaman, I'm a Guantanaman prisoner.

When they injure my body
They say they are not torturing me.
They cause me grave wounds
Such as never heal.

Guantanaman, I'm a Guantanaman prisoner.
Guantanaman, I'm a Guantanaman prisoner.

They don't let me sleep:
My end is no mystery.
I will get out when I die
Or the great empire falls.

Guantanaman, I'm a Guantanaman prisoner.
Guantanaman, I'm a Guantanaman prisoner.
