Kif (Κιφ) (Engels vertaling)

Engels vertaling


No guard was at the borders I crossed
only a few thristy falcons
anchored on my knees asking of me some water
but how could I satisfy the poor ones
I was found in a city I've been looking for, for so long
through my dream's map, the hidden one
I'm about to grope it, I 'm rushing to enjoy it
but she's going past me, with an alien look
At the market, vehicles carried by animals and exotic birds
and callers that cry for llife-belts
I bought one, for each one of two bare children
and they, cowered, answer me:
"The efforts made us age early in this world
and if you so badly want to make a concession
give us a little bit of green Keef from Morocco (keef = drug
and History will pay you off"
At the park, a skint was dinning me
that you were a pack of cards, marked
the playing cards were scattered to the four winds
where shall I look for you, my poor country
Over my shoulder, I grip my saddle-bag, coming back to all of you
fire, water, wind of mine and ground
the dreams won't be put up for auction
our round is not played yet.
