Her Arrogant Ivory Tower - Poem by MOHAMMAD SKATI
I thought her as A different figure, but To my surprise, I discovered her arrogant ivory tower Like some ivory tower's people, She is not different from All the other people, Her ivory tower is greater And bigger, She never forgets Her ivory tower because It lives in her and She lives greatly in it, She lives inside her ivory tower Like a snail in a shell, She says something and She does something else, Arrogance lives in her and Inside her ivory tower, An ivory tower was built With a lot of arrogance, She lives in great solitude In her ivory tower, Her pretty thought are just The ivory tower's thoughts themselves, and In a word she is in an ivory tower That lives in her and she lives in it.
