Pioggia Di Sangue Poem by Fabrizio Frosini

Pioggia Di Sangue

[13 Novembre 2015, Parigi - l'Europa, il nostro mondo]



Codardi, indegni, spietati,
Pretendono rispetto per se stessi, senza
Neppure fingere rispetto per gli altri.

Sguardi freddi, sguardi crudeli, privi di umanità
—Compassione non è quello che cercano.

Nel seguito di amore ed odio
Che dà colore al loro mondo interiore
La loro vacuità ti dà i brividi

In una corsa al ribasso, affermi
Prima il tuo sprezzante
Disprezzo, coniando
Un termine dispregiativo per riferirsi a loro,
Poi proclami la tua pietosa indifferenza
E, così, la definitiva vittoria.

Tuttavia, trovi tutto ciò ancora più triste

—Indifesa, disperata
La pioggia di sangue continua a cadere dolcemente su
Terra sterile

COMMENTS OF THE POEM
Fabrizio Frosini 14 January 2016

below, Dimitrios's question and my answer: ======================================== Dimitrios: Are the adjectives 'helpless, hopeless, folrorn'' atributes [assertive determinations] to the subject of the sentence ''The blood rain'' [keeps....]? If ''yes'' I wonder why, is there not any hope in the world to face that barbarism? ======================================== MY ANSWER: the blood of the victims is helpless/hopeless, because it cannot change human nature. I'm not an optimist, Dimitrios, and I am not religious. The evil side of the human nature will live till mankind's last day.. The (gentle) blood of the innocents cannot 'fertilize' a barren ground (= cannot wipe out the evil living in the terrorists' mind)

of course I want to help, but what do you need? The meaning of my words? —Indifesa, disperata La pioggia di sangue continua a cadere dolcemente su Terra sterile they refer to the blood of the victims of terrorism. But that blood cannot change the nature of mankind, and the evil will keep living inside us (terrorism/violence)

AS I WROTE ON MY OTHER PAGE: ______________________________ I wrote this poem a few hours after the murdering of so many innocent people in Paris, on November 13th,2015. After that, a publishing project also came about... I gave it the title: ‘POETRY AGAINST TERROR’ as a tribute to the countless victims of terror, worldwide. I invited many poets, whose poetry can be read at PoemHunter, to join me, so to write an e-book all together. The e-book, which is an anthology of poetry, is a compilation of poems written by 64 poets from 42 different countries from all over the world.
