Treasure Island

Metin Sahin

(28.03.1943 / balı kesir turkey)


for the first time in history era
the descendant from kenya
has come to power
all over the world
there is trauma
el kaide
terror organisations
in pakistan
in afghanistan
in ı rak
and in iran
border with nuclear russia
obama has come to power
all over the world
thge problems are sore...sore...sore
never changed a little bit more...more...more
how will he look at
how will he treat
these trauma
with his black eyes
or with his white eyes
obama has come to power
in hand
economic problems piling
no where to shelter
fopr the mortgage struck owners
and for elder and youngers
excluded from asylums and hospitals
or living on streets
collecting garbage to eat
obama has come to power
how will he handle
the wound and the problems
with his black hand
with his left hand
or with his right hand
seems no sign evident to end
obaqma has come to power
it is with no ease
all the nations
all the people
to please sooner
obama has come to power
even ufos watched with wonder
even the poet
sir langston hughes
wonders ande celebrates eagerly from heaven
over and over
for his dreams have fulfilled
obama has come to power
then nothing for you to do
but wait and see
how he can
with black eyes
or with white eyes
with right hands
with left hands
with black hands
or with white hands
he asked help from god
no one knows
whether he prays
with his muslim heart
or with his christian heart
it is between him and god
no one guesses
how will he use
hüseyin and obama....his names
but what a pity
we first saw him
in a banking advertisement
on a foreign tv
obama has come to power
see if he can
clasp and fix everthing
and clap them together

    Well put Metin. barack hussein obama, the islamic fundamentalist reject. He is not Christian at all. He said it during a live t.v. interview saying he was muslim but the news reporter said ' Christian ' LoL this bro needs to be sent back to Kenya is birthstate in a one way trip. But all in all good poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
