About A Family -Translation - Poem by Leila Ired

The mother knits
The son wages war
She thinks that very natural, the mother does
And the father, what does he do, the father?
He does business
His wife knitting
His son war
He business
He thinks that very natural, the father does
And the son, the son
What does he think, the son?
He thinks nothing, absolutely nothing, the son
The son his mother does knitting his father business he war
When he has finished the war
He will do business with his father
The war continues the mother continues she knits
The father continues he does business
The son is killed he does not continue anymore
The father and the mother go to the cemetery
They find that very natural, the father and mother do
Life continues, the life with knitting war business
Business war knitting war
Business business and more business
Life with the cemetery
