The dawn


As long as

the gun will thunder,

as long as

a hand will ask for a morsel,

as long as

there will be someone

who in the name of an entity,

a principle,

or a presumed truth,

will use your mind,

your body,

your intimacy,

as long as

there will be one who will divide Mankind

in blacks and whites,

Christians and Islamites,

Jews and Palestinians

men and women,

these and those,

you and us,

as long as

the barbed wire

will encircle the hips of the Earth...

we will always be at the dawn of civilization

which, perhaps, some day will come.
