Egyptian Revolution 2011

a poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen, Denmark

After 30 years
of silence and repression,
here they march on the streets
raising their voices
of discontent and neglect.

Here on the streets
the pros and cons in
the conflict meet
And the battle for
each other’s interests.
is being waged.

Piles of stones and
Stones after stones
are hurled at each other
as fists, and the more
powerful with their whips
and machineries of bullets
reign on the streets.

The unfortunates are counted
among the dead and wounded
The journalists, too, cannot
escape from blows and whips.

And yet they continue to gather
in broad day light and nights
dreaming for the rebirth
of their beloved Egypt.
