53221 - Crime and Punishment at Mati

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

The tragedy was not merely tragedy
but a crime during a period of peace
which unjustly convicted the innocent
because some considered them pawns
and they played a game
which was rigged
by the political power
at all levels.
Therefore even the punishment
needs protection
as no one
wants to be held responsible
for the unacceptable
and barbaric actions
whereas, they had no problem
to play around with human lives
and to cause
a deadly blow
to Hellenism.
