Occupation (כיבּוּשׁ) / Poem by Shoshana Vegh (שׁוֹשַׁנָּה וִיג)

 
Poem by Shoshana Vegh
 
 
Occupation
 
Come and conquer me without wars
Do not come as a general
Come as you are
Unarmed
You will come simply
Come in work clothes
Come in worn-out shoes
Come without a watch
Come any time
Come as pale
Come without a rhyme
The main thing
Do not come in an army parade
I hate you
I surrendered a long time ago
 
 
כיבּוּשׁ
 
בּוֹא תִּכְבֹּשׁ אוֹתִי בְּלִי מִלְחָמוֹת
אַל תָּבוֹא כְּמוֹ גֵּנֵרָל
תָּבוֹא כְּמוֹ שֶׁאַתָּה
בְּלִי נֶשֶׁק
תָּבוֹא פָּשׁוּט
תָּבוֹא בְּבִגְדֵי עֲבוֹדָה
תָּבוֹא בְּנַעֲלַיִם בְּלוּיוֹת
תָּבוֹא בְּלִי שָׁעוֹן
תָּבוֹא עַל זְמַנִּי
תָּבוֹא חִוֵּר
תָּבוֹא בְּלִי פִּזְמוֹן
הָעִקָּר אַל תָּבוֹא בַּמִּצְעָד
שׂוֹנֵאת אוֹתְךָ
כְּבָר נִכְנַעְתִּי מִזְּמַן
