39373 - Go away, go elsewhere

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

Go away, go elsewhere
says the old man
of Greece
to those who
want
to encroach upon
his homeland
because he knows
that it’s all about
a clique
which loves
the ruling power
and is
ready
to sacrifice
everything
in order to hold on
to the soiled
chair
of the unacceptable
compromises.
And so
they will leave
just as they came.
