Poems

You Would Have Understood

Hooyaallayey hooyaallayey, hooyaallayey hooye;
Weapons industries manufacturing ammunition throbbing with a strong regular  
       rhythm
These armaments provided in a continuous way to every corner of the world
Having no boundary determining the limits and imposing restriction
The one who is the camel-herder carrying the submachine gun AK-47 to his
       shoulder
You would have understood the degree to which many sufferings it inflicted.

The black-skinned people, the white-skinned people, Muslims and non-Muslims
It's men who are burning to destroy the territories but not well perceived
They are the ones who set up the rockets and don't listen to arguments,
Here are the women now counseling for a course of action under the tree of peace.

It killed in large numbers of camels, cattle, goats and sheep
There's no game animals and shielded tortoise left in the land
You would have understood the degree to which the number of people it strike
       down into the open fields
The birds who are used to be in the country had moved away and migrated
You would have understood that it had reached up to Hiroshima
You would have understood the difficulties it had brought to the world. 

The black-skinned people, the white-skinned people, Muslims and non-Muslims
It's men who are burning to destroy the territories but not well perceived
They are the ones who set up the rockets and don't listen to arguments,
Here are the women now counseling for a course of action under the tree of peace.

You would have understood the wars and the injuries it had inflicted upon
You would have understood that it had incapacitated the beloved people
You would have understood that it made orphans to many teenagers
You would have understood that it had slaughtered many elders
You would have understood that the world today has gas masks for protection
You would have understood that it's a resentment and persistent feeling of ill
        will
You would have understood that it puts an arson to peaceful and untroubled
        houses
You would have understood the degree to which many sufferings it inflicted.

The black-skinned people, the white-skinned people, Muslims and non-Muslims
It's men who are burning to destroy the territories but not well perceived
They are the ones who set up the rockets and don't listen to arguments,
Here are the women now counseling for a course of action under the tree of peace.
 
You would have understood that peace is a shady tree;
You would have understood that it looks after families and friends
You would have understood that it's a flash of lightning and camels given birth
You would have understood that it's a large container full of frothy milk
You would have understood that it's an eligible marriage partner and love
You would have understood that it's escorting the bride and groom home after
       the wedding ceremony
You would have understood that it's a site where happiness is occurring
You would have understood that it's a place promoting to progress
You would have understood that it's like houses protected with fences
You would have understood that it's spreading out with a silk
You would have understood that it's seasoned with the she-camel - Gobaad -
       sign of independence
You would have understood the degree to which one has moved on to
       knowledge and education.  

The black-skinned people, the white-skinned people, Muslims and non-Muslims
It's men who are burning to destroy the territories but not well perceived
They are the ones who set up the rockets and don't listen to arguments,
Here are the women now counseling for a course of action under the tree of peace.
