Treasure Island

نزار قباني



اللفظةُ طابةُ مطّاطٍ
يقذفُها الحاكمُ من شُرفتهِ للشارعْ
ووراءَ الطابةِ يجري الشعبُ
ويلهثُ.. كالكلبِ الجائعْ
اللفظةُ، في الشرقِ العربيِّ
أرجوازٌ بارعْ
يتكلَّمُ سبعةَ ألسنةٍ
ويطلُّ بقبّعةٍ حمراءْ
ويبيعُ الجنّةَ للبسطاءْ
وأساورَ من خرزٍ لامعْ
ويبيعُ لهمْ
فئراناً بيضاً.. وضفادعْ
اللفظةُ جسدٌ مهترئٌ
ضاجعهُ كتابٌ، والصحفيُّ
وضاجعهُ شيخُ الجامعْ
اللفظةُ إبرةُ مورفينٍ
يحقنُها الحاكمُ للجمهورِ
منَ القرنِ السابعْ
اللفظةُ في بلدي امرأةٌ
تحترفُ الفحشَ
منَ القرنِ السابعْ

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
