Sidon

Versions: #1#2
My little child, mine
Mine
Fat lips under the sun
Of honey, of honey
Sweet benign tumor
Of your mother
Squeezed in the muggy weather
Of the summer, of the summer.
 
And now, clot of blood ears
And milk teeth
And soldiers' eyes angry dogs
With the foam at the mouth
 
Lamb hunters
That chase people like preys
Until the wild blood won't extinguish their desire
And then the iron in the throat the irons of the prison
And in the wounds the poisonous seed of the deportation
Because nothing ours from the plain in the way
Could anymore grow nor tree nor spike nor child
 
Bye my child, the inheritance
Is hidden in this town
That burns, that burns,
In the falling night
And in this big light
For your little death.
