Now you know

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Evi Charitidou

Now you know
why aren’t you saying anything?
Does society of indifference
intimidate you?
Is it injustice or barbarity
that you can’t stand?
You cry before
the cross of the man
but, what do you say about genocide?
Can’t you see that each one of them
is a new crucifixion?
There is no epitaph
for anonymous victims.
You are still afraid of penalization
while you make the sign of the cross.
Which is the reason?
Tradition, habit,
or acceptance?
Don’t wait for the revolution;
victims are dead.
They are waiting for you
for vindication.
And now you saw
the sun of justice
what are you going to do, tell me!
