Poetry by Dime Maziba Ξ Photography by Maro Kentros
After their lullaby
of electoral campaign
Liberation songs
will prevail the psalms.
The effigy of the dictator,
Wiping the toilet seats of poor peple.
Why politicians do not
Differentiate exit and exile ?
Do their spellings matter?
When it’s Arab spring in Maghreb,
It is western winter in panama.
Bank, frozen and Santa
becomes bogeyman.
All the toys will be under
The dazzling sun
Thank you dear God,
At least, the homeless in West
Will find a roof.
