Elegy

            


like a mysterious fly 
in my soup 
a bad feeling
I can't coop 
stumbling upon my hope 
casting the dark clouds 
upon my head 
took away my daily bread 
and inflicting me pain 
on my bed 
a bad omen 
from a cursed bird
an evil tidings to change
my great mood 
for a violent victory
will do me no good 
and a bad soil 
can't grow me a flower 
neither can the bad weather 
a meal of poverty 
certainly taste bitter 
antagonizing my destiny 
for I am a captive
yearning to be free
what the oppressor
don't want to see
the abomination of a just course
is a sacrifice for the gods 
a victim to the system 
an unwanted rhythm 
a hunted soul 
for the beast 
and a prey for its feast
