' Oh, Dante Alighieri ! '
by Thaddeus Hutyra
Oh, Dante Alighieri and William Shakespeare,
Lord Byron, Norwid, Goethe and Pushkin,
throw light on me filled with poetry
and let me write something that touches God.
Poets, do you hear me?
Are you listening to me?
Oh, yeah! Nothing can stop me
in my search for liberty!
The one which is
like swimming in the sea of diamonds,
flying in the eyes of the sun.
I want the theater of the world
playing not only for me. For us!
I see Abel and Cain, Romeo and Juliet,
Osama bin Laden, Bush, Putin and Blair
Barack Obama, Merkel, Donald Tusk
and unfortunately the Islamist militants
and their genocidal so called ISIS Caliphate
the terrorists raping women, beheading men
mistreating children, enslaving girls
Sodom and Gomorrah in the Islamist fires
the fires of ultimate evil !
So many fools, and so much drama!
Forgive them, my Lord,
for they don't know what they do!
I take a cup of coffee
and feel that the finale is coming.
I turn yet on the radio
and listen to Chopin's ballads,
the elixirs of the mind.
The emotions transform me into eagle,
the king of heaven
for whom the so-called blue blood does not exist.
The eagle which adopts orphans
and which asks
the so-called royal families
why they don't do the same. Why?!
Can’t they extend their hands to them?
Don’t they see their eyes,
the eyes which are mirror of God?!
Oh, Earth, where are you going to ?!
Oh, Earth, Earth! ...
Where are you going to ?!
