THE TRUTH OF RED LINES Poem by MOHAMMAD SKATI


Red lines are everywhere, but Which ones are really red lines? When you cross the red lines It means you cross all lines, They say that red lines are crossed Or they're completely crossed, Crossing red lines is risky and Dangerous, but nothing happens, Red lines are merely words uttered By irresponsible figures or persons, They say that if you cross the so-called Red lines, then you will be beaten, Red lines are crossed everyday and no Fines or tickets imposed on anyone, I think these red lines mean that They're merely mirages in a desert, There are no red lines and no such- And-such lines like these anywhere, Red lines are only on the weak people, but When it comes to strong people It is something else anytime and anywhere, How many times these so-called red lines Are crossed everyday in front of us? We hear here red lines and we hear there Red lines anywhere and everywhere in vain, They talk about crossing red lines here and There, but nothing happens at all, So-and-so says red lines should not be crossed, But they're crossed easily and softly, so All is merely an ugly bubble in the eyes of Everyone anytime, anywhere, and everywhere.
