Still Man Is True
Still Man is true; I come back to Man
by Sayeed Abubakar
again and again. Leaving all the blue sins
and filthiness of civilization behind,
I rush to join Man's procession.
Neither forest nor loneliness, I adore
only the maddened din and bustle of life;
the soul that longs for the blind self-success
is now detestable corpse, the food for a vulture.
Those who will go to the Moon leaving men on earth;
those who desire the blue-eyed nymphs of heaven;
those who are always indifferent to men's
defeat and bad news; I wish they succeed
in building gold-house in heaven
and I live and die here only with Man.
