الفنان والشاعر ويل بارتون / William Barton

Hi Hasan,

Love and strength to the new Libya.




The long
Creaking memory
Of the world
Will contain
A pox
A madness
A devil strain
A germ rejected
By the sane
An evil rust
No map or record
Wants to retain
But it must
This gross bacteria
Defiantly projected
Into the library
Of vile histories
Will seep and stink
Where cold academia
With disinfected ink
Will try to decode
It’s mysteries
The long
Leaking memory
Of the world
Will cry
