“Thank you, I’m not interested…”
Blaga Todorova & Samer El Abed
The Blind leads the Blind,
echoes and shadows collide.
The Ignorant leads the Ignorant,
innocence lapses with time.
The Criminal preaches Justice,
bullets color the indigo sky.
The Haters lecture love,
hearts blossom only when it’s dark.
The Holy man leads the Mob,
faith is no longer part of the world clock.
If that’s your gift of Freedom,
inhaling with agony drops of liberty.
If that’s your gift of Democracy,
caging the last breath of hope.
If that’s your gift of Justice,
replacing the light of values with shame.
If that’s your gift of Life,
marching over thoughts and reasons.
Thank you, I’m not interested…
This is my first jointly written poem, and this collaboration with the talented Blaga (http://brokensparkles.wordpress.com/) is an experience I highly cherish.
