(In fleeing is salvation)

The theatre of war is

a wasteland of dire alternatives

either us or them; either living or dead

if you won’t get him, he will get you

if you don’t want a rifle you’re a traitor

if you get rid of it you’re a deserter

(then you are undone by your own side)

in all the variables

odds are on the side of death

and from death flee not only those

who cannot escape

since they realised too late

they have been bridled and yoked

And thus it’s the holy duty

of every sensible being

to spread the wings of charity

to those who refuse to shoot and maim

but who also refuse to be killed

to help them escape that void of alternatives

and the chasm between hate and fear

for if we fail to help

refugees and renegades

exiles and escapees

we have no right to hope

that others would help us

when some of our own tyrants

(who are surely among us, binding their time

and waiting for their moment of fame)

choose to bridle and yoke us

and bind us to their own designees

or else, or else

since when there’s no other option

all have the right to flee

from hate and war

If the fleeing is salvation.

 ( Samo u bježanju je spas.)

Područje rata je
vjetromet smanjenih alternativa
ili mi ili oni; il’ živ il’ mrtav
ako nećeš ti njega hoće on tebe
ako nećeš pušku izdajnik si
ako baciš pušku dezerter si
(tad te dotuku tvoji)
u svim varijantama
vjerojatnoća je na strani smrti
a od nje ne bježe samo oni
koji pobjeći ne mogu
jer su kasno shvatili
da su im stavili oglav na glavu

I zato je sveta dužnost
svakog zdravorazumna bića
raširiti krila dobrote onima
koji neće upucavati i sakatiti
a neće ni da budu ubijeni
da pobjegnu iz bezizbora

i rascjepa između omraženosti i mržnje
jer ako ne pomognemo
izbjeglicama i izgnanicima

pobjeglicama i prognanima
nemamo se pravo uzdati

da će netko pomoći nama
kada nas neki naši tirani
(koji zasigurno tu negdje čuče

i čekaju svojih pet minuta)
ukolinče i sputaju glavu
te zauzdaju uzdama ili ili…

jer kad nema drugog izlaza

svatko ima pravo pobjeći

od mržnje i rata

ako je već u bježanju spas.
