André translated Abdellatif Laâbi’s poems directly from the French singlehandedly and so we don’t have literal versions for these translations.

It is not an under-statement on Morocco but on the entire race of mankind.
“Lawfully rape their wives”....horribly beautiful, horribly true.

This is as near to a political poem as I have been able to find so far in skimming Moroccan poets. Is the government being criticized? Traveling to Morocco in early November (Fez). Hoping to connect with Moroccan intellectual life.
