when poets call from the rooftops


last night those who can not sleep
in their inner-ear somebody
whispered and echoed
the weeping of the lost children of humanity.

the weeping was heard as they say,
in the streets of Kabul, Sao Paulo
Gaza, Grozny and Colombo,
in Port-au-Prince, Kolkata
Baghdad and Jakarta
Darfur, Kinshasha and Manila ...

as it kept coming and coming,
echoing and echoing
from all corners of the world,
wailing and lamenting so intense!

Heart, I said, what an agony it has been
to be witness to the weeping of humanity,
to feel the pain of the Divine,
Who calls to every inner ear of poets and prophets
calling not from far, but near
calling, calling since the aeons of time

calling since always to wake us up
from this mad slumber.
calling to free ourselves
from this bondage of slavery
we orchestrated so thoroughly.

now let the poets stand up
and give call from the rooftops,
in every inner-ear of every heart
let the call of humanity be heard.
