Rita El Khoury

J'Accuse Les Libanais

Vous célébrez aujourd’hui votre indépendance
Avec fierté, avec gaieté, avec assurance.
Mais moi, je vous adresse mes condoléances
Car vous ne pensez pas à votre ascendance,
Vous oubliez le pays témoin de votre enfance,
Car vous êtes insensibles à toutes ses endurances,
À ses cris d’aides, à ses demandes de défense,
Car il pleure et vous ne sentez pas sa souffrance,
Car il meurt et vous ne remarquez pas son absence,
Car vous êtes incapables de faire avec lui alliance,
Car vous êtes coupables et faites mine d’innocence.

A poem a day - Shopping with a friend

Shopping with a friend is cool
There's nothing forbidden, no rule
And no parents to say what's suitable
Or to tell you what's unaffordable,
Actually you don't need to be rich
To try on whatever your eyes wish.

Shopping with a friend is so nice
You might forget budget and price
And buy things you don't need
Just by habit, not by greed
Like get ten or eleven similar tops
From two or three different shops.

Shopping with a friend is funny
Even if you don't have money
You can try a formal blue shirt
With a long gypsy orange skirt
Pretend to buy them but act lost
Then don't, because they're low-cost.
