I DON’T FEEL SORRY...

I feel sorry for the rulers,

because they were born

with a greed of power

and they need the forbidders.

 

I feel sorry for the forbidders,

because they were given birth

by dynasties of the rulers

and the forbidders are forbidding the unforbidden,

because of what they own not

and they need the executioners.

 

I feel sorry for the executioners,

because they were given birth

by the forbidders

and the executioners

were never able to execute themselves.

 

I feel sorry for the soldiers,

who were given birth by the governors,

who often don’t know

what is created

by their “philanthropists”.

 

I feel sorry for the children,

who were given birth by the governments, because they are

saturated the same.

I don’t feel sorry for the artists,

because they were given birth

by the Creator,

to create

like the Creator

himself!

 

Vladimir Afonsky
