    Abdul’s Children

    ABDUL’S CHILDREN

    By Ada Aharoni (Abadan, Iran, 1976)

    Will not know more
    Than Abdul does,
    for Abdul’s children
    Are not taught more
    Than Abdul was.

    Benevolent Ladies –
    Stuff your ears
    With cocktail parties
    Your noses with caviar,
    With Champagne your eyes –
    Then no more sighs,
    You will not hear
    Nor smell nor see
    Their illiterate
    Cries.
