38399 - Don’t search out for excuses

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

Don’t search out
for excuses
when you don’t participate
in a battle
which would’ve saved
an entire nation
from the continuation
of a genocide
by a mutual enemy
because in this manner
you’re indirectly participating
in his actions
against the innocent
whom you didn’t protect
as you were taking into account
merely your own
