Madaya Dies Slowly, But Where Is Humanity? - Poem by MOHAMMAD SKATI

The pretty city of Madya, Our little sister, dies Slowly as a result of That ugly ordeal that She suffers from anytime... Magnanimity has died and The whole world's conscience Has died too... We stand with our little sister In her ordeal, but Where is that missing humanity Around us anytime... The people of that poor Madaya Eat dogs, cats, donkeys, and all That is left in the garbage... Nobody cares about that forgotten city Simply because we are all totally selfish In what we feel about others' dilemmas... Madaya's innocent people are starving to death Simply because they refuse to kneel down to evil... The great city will not die As long as we stand united with it... We greatly stand hand-in-hand united with That great city as long as we are alive... O selfish world! Please have your eyes and Have your mercy on that forgotten city! If the great and heroic city dies slowly, then I know that the whole world's conscience will be No more anytime... God will not forget it if We forget it anytime... Peace be on Madaya! Please do not forget that hungry city Simply because its poor inhabitants are dying slowly... _________________________________________________ _____________________

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Madya is a city in the rural Damascus where its people are starving to death deliberately... It needs the whole world's assistance and support immediately... People eat dogs, cats, donkeys, insects to stay alive...
