The Second Guernica

Second Guernica

Two explosions wrecked the University of Aleppo on January 15, killing 80 people, most of them students sitting for their exams. The Syrian government  as it it usual, blamed the rebels, but the rebels claim they have proof that the government is responsible. The students of Aleppo University are known for their support to the Revolution. It makes no sense for the rebels to attack the University.

غرنيكا الثانية
The Second Guernica

في حلب روى الرواة
بان فتيانا وفتيات
في ربيع الحياة
طلابا في جامعة حلب الشهباء
ناداهم البوم يحوم في السماء
نائحا.
وروي الراوي ايضا
ان ملاك الموت يبكي
حانيا الرأس
 ،ضمً الى صدره رويدا
ودموعه تنهمر انهمارا 
ضمً وجمع اليه الرواء والصبا
الضائع هدرا
والآمال المهدورة هباء.

ثم نشر الملاك اجنحته الهائلة
واطلق صرخة صاعقة
ململما بين ذراعيه
الرؤى العذبة السارية
التي ايقظتها سوريا
في صدورهم الحالمة.
وسار الملاك وسارت الحرية في ركابه
وسار الملاك فسار الجمال في اعقابه
وتريث لحظة مترددا
ولكن العدالة همست
خذهم الي حين
فمشيئتي ستسود
بعد حين
