With an army equipped with cannons, tanks and guns
To arrest a bird for the penalty of throwing stones

The enemy came to find;
Whether a flag has remained in a corner
Of a deserted house or not,
If there’s an olive branch to bear fruits and to keep alive some families for some days

The flocks and flocks of ababil birds will hatch
And emerge from their ashes
The babies that the homeland always is pregnant
With the freshness of their expectancy....
