Recent Flow - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki

Recent flow

“I am a refugee…”
Said the man politely in low voice:
“Thanks to you, your planes, your drones…”
A voice heard changes tone:
“OK, the invasion…”
Again a, vague comment
With it he, raises voice:
“I too was against him…”
He stops; and exhales, then he sighs:
“Human has wisdom, Bush didn't.”
Some shouting:
“And Iran, and Kuwait? ”
The man moves side to side; raises voice:
“Bush is a descendent of Reagan.”
Clear whisper heard:
“What is end? ”
“You dear…your grand ancestors…”
Many turn to look, watch the target of man’s words.
“The sick earth has quakes, volcanoes and storms…”
“Why…? ”
And whispers once again:
“He is vague…”
“Is too wise…”
“Is afraid…”
“Is in need…”
The man shouts over words:
“You took guns with horses and your swords…”
Someone said:
“Long ago…”
“Yes my son…study…then was now, it was same…”
Refreshes his breath:
“Then too lacked…freedom, health and food…”
“So…? ” was heard, here there.
“It is need…need makes and destroys…”
“And need what? ”
“Kills blind…”
“And result? ”
“Open arms, heart and mind.”
