Treasure Island

sallam yassin

(05/06/1968 / Hargeisa, Somaliland)

Insanity; the race for the loss


Permanently nuclear heads
psychosis;
sightless Heads
Plant of the haters
Insanity this race
We; any race
Commonly we repatriate
The rays of the sun
For what
Radiation
Ruining our earth
Reproduction of what
The death
and the death
The winner;
who
only dust
A weapon of no winner

No buds
Only! only ash!
Of Hiroshima, Nagasaki
Who is Replaying that?
Kids with heads;
nuclear
Who are playing
deadly game of men!

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.
