Poem on Friday: Cassandra is Calling ~ Bi-lingual

April 2020

She definitely screams and shouts now πŸ˜”

Sometime in 2012

…. maybe even louder now!

Cassandra is calling

Cassandra is calling
but Europa again
falls for the bull.There is no
new kingdom
awaiting her though!

Even lugubrious storm clouds
are fleeing
her countries!

There is no
hope for her
ancient cities!

But the
wise and brave
try anyhow!

There is no
care or reason
with the powerful!

Will they
listen to
her people?

Will they
listen and learn
or lose forever?

Cassandra is calling
calling and calling

but there is no
consumer
for her calls!

April 2020

Sie schreit jetzt definitiv so laut sie kann

Irgendwann in 2012

….. vielleicht jetzt sogar noch lauter!

Cassandra Ruft

Cassandra ruft
aber Europa ist wieder
dem Bullen verfallen!

Doch da wartet
kein neues Koenigreich
auf sie!

Sogar drohende
Sturmwolken entfliehen
ihren Laendern!

Da gibt es
keine Hoffnung mehr
fuer Ihre alten Staedte!

Aber die
Weisen und Mutigen
versuchen es trotzdem!

Da ist keine
Sorgfalt oder Verstand
mit den Maechtigen!

Werden sie
ihren Menschen
zuhoeren?

Werden sie
zuhoeren und lernen
oder fuer immer verlieren?

Cassandra ruft
und ruft und ruft!

Aber da gibt es
keinen Konsumenten
fuer ihre Rufe!

  1. Cassandra, daughter of Troy; she of deep understanding and powerlessness! I like Cassandra. She has the foresight of a poet; the ability to understand the human condition without any capability to overcome its weakness. A prophet of doom, perhaps.

    Well written and very insightful, Bee.
