55172 - Don’t leave the innocents

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Vasiliki Baklesi

Don’t leave the innocents
without protection
since you know
that barbarity
will make
every effort
to enslave them.
Each move
you make for them
is an act
for Humanity.
So don’t wait
until it is late
to move
and to accuse
the barbarians
whoever they are
because it is
your role
from the beginning.
