But I Wont

By Hamdan Dammag

 

Hey you! Yes you, the photographer

Come closer and take your time!

I wont spoil it, and I wont smile

Your shaky photo will be sold

And in tomorrows front pages

You may see my face

But I wont.

 

And you! Yes you, the pretty journalist

Come closer, I am not that blind

And I wont tell you whats in my mind

Your half story will be sold

And tonight - on TV

You may see your face

But I wont.

 

And you! Yes you, the perplexed poet

Come closer and write me a song

I wont last in your conscience for long

Your rubbish poem will be published

And You may then feel the usual guilt

But I wont.
