MOHAMMAD SKATI


The Whole World


The whole world is
Called a small village,
It is called greatly
One-man world,
It is called
One-eyed,
It is called
One-eared,
It is called
A no-mouth world,
It smells burnt,
Its foundation stone is fragile,
It is the world of misery,
It's not generous,
It is greatly a double-standard world,
A grain of sand is bigger than our world
Because we can see it
While our world is greatly dwarf and getting smaller,
Our world needs a loudspeaker to be heard,
The atmosphere is not healthy,
Our world needs a sieve to hide its face,
Our world is greatly dark,
There are a lot of clouds of evil,
Love is rare,
Poverty is growing like mushrooms,
Riding our world is risky and dangerous,
The dark clouds rain useless water,
All birds are crying instead of singing,
A lot of orphans everywhere and a lot of poor widows,
Money is hard to get,
Jobless and unemployment are everywhere,
Ongoing wars are everywhere,
Ongoing disasters and sudden earthquakes,
Stock-markets are down,
Life is down,
A lot of dead-ends,
Sudden deaths of pretty people,
Bad images of the world,
A hopeless world of ours,
You need visas to travel even to the Everest Mountain,
Our world is thirsty and hungry,
Life is absurd and lifeless,
Fake beauties are anywhere,
Electric powers are down,
The sea's tides are increasing,
Our world needs to be fixed and needs a pretty make-up!
Our world is not healthy,
Greenhouses are hurting our nature,
We are like aliens in our world,
We suffer too much,
Leafless trees are everywhere,
A lot of deserts in our world,
The sea-water level is dangerously up and up, but
Our drinking-water is down and down, and
After all either we fix our problems or
We buy man-made flying saucers to fly us into another pretty planet.
We still have a lot of problems need to be fixed soon.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
