A Message From Saed - Poem by Salah Abdel Sabour

You !
Our Master who is coming after me
I am the youngest
Among those who are eagerly
waiting for you
I am jobless
prisoner
Guilty of looking into the future
But I am waiting for you
On behalf of farmers
Ironsmiths
Barbers
Donkey drivers and sailors
Worker and businessmen
The senators and the clerks
The porters and the shops-lads
By the name of the poets
The warders
The pyramids
The door of victory
The egyption good vaults
Abd Allah Al Nadeem
Tawfeek Al Hakeem Al mazz
Shagrett Al Dor
The book of dead
The anthem of Bellady Bellady
My country, My country
we beg you to come quickly
Patience vanished
Despair spread
please come urjently
save us now
Or you will not do it for ever
Annotation:
Do not forget to carry your sword!
