*BECAUSE? (PERCHÉ?) / Poem by Maria Teresa Manta

 
Poem by Maria Teresa Manta
 
 
PERCHÉ?
 
Un esercito di uomini, donne, bambini,
carne da macello. Ammassati nelle baracche, pochi stracci addosso.
Fame, sete, freddo,
carne putrida, bersagli
da sparo per macellai ubriachi, violenti, ebbri
di odio, sadici carnefici, figli di Satana, Satana essi stessi.
Uomini bestie e agnelli immolati sugli altari sanguinanti dell’odio. PERCHÉ?
 
 
 
*BECAUSE?
 
An army of men, women, children,
slaughter meat. Crowded in the barracks, a few rags on.
Hunger, thirst, cold,
putrid flesh, targets
shot for drunk, violent, inebriated butchers
of hatred, sadistic executioners, children of Satan, Satan themselves.
Men, beasts and lambs sacrificed on the bloody altars of hatred. BECAUSE?
