Naftali Primor, Poetry

נפתלי פרימור, שירתי

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

To Obey is to Understand

It's Mankind who rules the rest.
The fish, the serpents
And their closest relatives.
It's him to give orders.
It's him to have steel, to pierce.
It's him to give and to get.
His power comes out of the act of Genesis.
It's God that made him so.
You're his descendents.
It's not for you to judge.
But before it's too late
And no one is left,
We can hardly read its text
No point obeying its rules.
The meaning of good and bad
We seem never to understand.
No point in ruling the rest.
