A Message To Turkey's Leader Poem by Nicholas Nikolov
Rather than agreeing to the demands of his diplomatic-
protesting citizens, for the most part - they have been.
Most certainly, they shall continue to be seen
on an international scale. The law enforcement
committed unjust actions, out of severe desperation.
The open-minded peoples of his self-conflicting,
two-continent inhabiting nation, outright enraged,
which he discouragingly governs - astonishing
indeed; ignoring your people in anti-democratic
fashion, is unforgivable.
Listening to your people must be priority
on his agenda, and therefore, respectfully
step down. Yet, his plans were directed
elsewhere throughout, which may even create a possible
dislike - in a tiny amount - amongst his neighbours.
With his possible turmoil-developing remarks
that might have the potential
to escalate to a violent confrontation, when life is already so dismal.
The statement he stoically professed:
'Thrace is a witness of our history.
This region is representative of our entire history…'
Claiming that the millenniums-old ancient lands
of lost-in-the-sands-of-time ancient civilizations,
such as the prevalent Persians, the impressive Illyrians,
the resplendent Romans, the marvellous Macedonians,
the tremendous Thracians, the benevolent Bulgarians
and the glorious Greeks -
the majority of these people still remain living
in their ancestral homelands of Thrace, with unbound passions.
Turkey, never had a hold on the Balkans in their hands,
prior to the conquest, when they were the Ottoman Empire.
This proclamation, is solely for votes in the upcoming elections,
which each is as valuable as a sapphire
stone, and possibly on a broader objective, to further
push to attain the prestige's European Union membership
in the future. As his country has obtained ownership
of one of the most gorgeous, breathtaking
cities of the world; none other than the forever-standing
old capital of Byzantium - Constantinople of course.
Nowadays, it's known by its current name, Istanbul.
Not to forget the recent hostility between him and Egypt,
he is in close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and acted
upon the dealings of the demonstrators, similar
to his Egyptian counterpart, President Mohammed Morsi, both of familiar political-sharing points of view,
and therefore should be committed.
Without remorse -
he arrogantly ignored his citizen's displeasures
of how he runs the country; many strongly believe,
and shall forevermore be - for generations to come will conceive -
the ideologies of the great, President Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
as the true country's leader.
