3174 - The waiting of the dead

Μετάφραση από τα γαλλικά Vicky Baklessi

The world wouldn’t dawn
and the five dead waited
for the black centuries to pass
so they’d be touched again
by the knight without armor.
They wouldn’t listen to the noise of societies
only the human voices.
Those would tell them
when the last battle would begin.
