.تُعرّج شميم آزاد في كلمات شعرها عن درو السياسيين في مسخ الدين واستنباط العنصرية خلاله
اللوحة للفنان الجزائري @الطيب لعيدي
The people who come round the mountains,
climbing down from the tall towers,
or coming out from the city of mosques
aren’t created by a lesser or a greater God.
The difference is the creation of
some self-righteous politicians,
the hypocritical human creators.
These politicians change their masks,
and keep on coming back again and again –
like slimy creepy creatures, fungi.
They keep on hovering over us
to baffle and buffet us with changes
To indulge their prejudices
they can be ruthless, relentless,
violent and terrorizing!
That affects us like hemlock and
we don’t even know that
we are discriminating, hating each other –
while they watch us like vultures!
They can be men or women –
a man with a prayer cap or without,
a woman with a veil or without,
but with a tremendous skill of fabrication,
and the awesome skill of oratory
They know how to misinterpret
the religious books to
create a Frankenstein.
And out of terror,
they create another,
Actually to me
they are war-mongers,
holding us as hostages
all over the world.
They are the ones
who should be hunted
by pure people.
But children of the future
are going to salvage
civilisation from pollution
