11137 - The children of Tassos

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

The children of Tassos
are all the Cypriots
who live freely
on account of him
even if then
they didn’t believe him
because the propaganda
of his enemies
was so persuasive
that almost no one
from what he had saved us
and now
After so many years
some question him
but we know
what role did he played
in the fight
for the dignity
of Cyprus
and just like Antigone
we will honor him
whoever Creon
may be.
