Slavery | عبودية

Poetry by Hamza O. Illustrations by Octavian F.

No need to rush with the shoddy sales procession, For you are losers all around. The deluge will leave nothing, For you, in the sea someday, will drown. Behind death, you scamper, The slave trader pursues, And to

morrow, in the slave markets, you are on array. History will never absolve, Those who forfeit or betray. Why do you set off and stagger? Over your thrones you linger. In the ecstasy of power and tyranny. They are getting drunk. Our peoples made comfortable, And snoozed, In the dungeons of prisons. Everyone slept; all are yawning. When will the sleepers awake?

لا تسرعوا في موكب البيع الرخيص فإنكم

في كل شيء خاسرون..

لن يترك الطوفان شيئًا كلكم

في اليم يومًا غارقون..

تجرون خلف الموت

والنخاس يجري خلفكم..

وغدا بأسواق النخاسة تعرضون..

لن يرحم التاريخ يوما.

من يفرط أو يخون..

لماذ تذهبون وتترنحون..

فوق الكراسي هائمون..

في نشوة السلطان والطغيان..

راحوا يسكرون..

وشعوبنا ارتاحت ونامت..

في غيابات السجون..

نام الجميع وكلهم يتثاءبون..

فمتى يفيق النائمون؟
