Naftali Primor, Poetry

נפתלי פרימור, שירתי

משורר צעיר בליבו ששירתו התפתחה בגיל מאוחר. הרגישו מוזמנים להשתתף בחווית שירתי.

On The River Bank in Mindanao

The old man looked into my eyes
Don't talk around; what is your family name?
I calmly replied: Jonathan Matias
Is the army general Bal Matias your relative?
Yes, he is my father.
Do you know that here in Cotabato
He killed many of my Jihad fighters?
I smelt the outcome of the interpretator suddenly loosing
The fish soup into his pants
The old man exchanged a few words with his K-47 carriers
Then they all started to laugh
The interpretator: Any of these soldiers wouldn't have been born
If it was not your father who raped so many women here
They would be your half brothers
It's the only time I felt proud of him.
