LAND, FREEDOM,NATIONAL DIGNITY

Written by: khedher mouwahed

this poem is about an assasination of a political leader in my country 'Tunisia'
may he rest in peace


From circles of spoon hiding honey in your cafe cream skin
rise the smell of workers,bees and caffeine ...
From the bread of  golden wheat,humming:our LAND is fertile
rise your sunny morning smile ...
 
FREEDOM is your will to cross the street
riding the blue morning wind...red roses grow under your feet
who  has never seen a clear sky,never let the doves on their own,
who has not seen you,dump his face in the dirt like sheep do
 
I have seen wolves hiding among sheep that day
Cowardice in both is the one who kill you
NATIONAL DIGNITY: I cry on crows to go away
your body left to feed the earth, never saying Adieu
 
I don't believe in gods, neither shepherd's rule
their justice is soaked with blood and wool
when all sheep learn that there's no difference between
the shepherd and the wolf : they will learn also
the LAND, FREEDOM, and NATIONAL DIGNITY.
