The Sparrows Fight without Stay

POETRY FORMAT, 15 May 2017

Adolf P. Shvedchikov – TRANSCEND Media Service

The sparrows fight without stay
Looking for crumbs of bread…
That ceaseless vital thread
Is whirling night and day!
I hear this eternal song
Always in our life
Full of struggle and strife.
Pugnacious crazy throng,
Why are you hostile and wrong,
Looking for a treacherous knife,
Suspicious, imprudent, is rife
With rumors…Tell me, how long
This craziness will prolong?
Where is that wise shepherd
Who will stop this ping-pong,
Who will put in order the herd?
