When an ignorant blind person
Is leading an entire nation,
When the wolves are shepherds,
How will the sheep feel safe from danger?*
There is nothing called democracy -
All is at the mercy of a dictator.
We can only wait for his death
For this long season of disaste
To comes to an end.
by Yassin Aref
*There is an Arabic saying, “The duty of the shepherd is to protect the sheep from the wolves – what happens when the wolves become the shepherds?”
