42262 - We ought to resist

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

We ought to resist
against every form
of authoritarian system
both Nazi and Stalinist ones
because it’s only us
who protect
from the attacks
of barbarism
which always wants
to devour
the Innocent
before they are saved
by the Righteous
because it wants
nothing humane
to remain
within a society of slaves
where everything is controlled
by the State
and the violence
as it’s afraid
of even the notion
of freedom
as it’s by nature
