lost in translation…poem by Ayanle Dhat

gabayWith no objections and no reply

stranded are the men who stand by

some question, some deny

some go with the wind, as it goes by

somalia’s president now wears a suit

does he lecture does he refute

what he sowed now bears fruit

a title is bestowed when it takes root

men worship the men they imitate

this comes from a deep seated hate

so much so as to desecrate

words are lost when men translate

just like the evil behind all of pride

just like the sin that causes so much grief

it leaves man to always take a side

so short, short lived, so brief
