17202 - If in actual fact Thrace

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

If Thrace in actual fact
had no value
then all of us should’ve
explained to our nation
why so many neighbours
are trying to grab hold of it
as if it were precious
so look at the sea
in order to see the future
and leave aside the local issues
which with dexterity are trying
to delay us
so that they wouldn’t lose control,
we however believe in Kolokotronis
and we only answer
to the Byzantine City.
