2230 - The exodus

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Angeliki Papadopoulou

The beasts should win
and they won.
The humans should die
and they died.
But the beasts didn’t catch up with metamorphosis
and the humans became monsters.
Then the bonds broke
and the society knelt.
It couldn’t endure the passion of humaneness
and its shadow fade.
So the fire became light
and the free were born.
