Old Frames — Poem —
Abdelatif Chokri is a post-graduate student at the M.A, program: Applied Linguistics & Language Studies. Ibn Zohr University, Agadir.
Isn’t it time for a change?
Heavy old frames remain the same.
Chained minds only change the colour.
It’s time for us to make a change
A hungry child crying, yet politicians accept no blame;
Hypocrisy justifies the seeking of power.
Can’t you make a change?
My sight isn’t clear enough to understand the game.
Please get down from your ivory tower.
We need to make a change.
When the sleepy wake up, no one can stop the flame.
Give me justice; let me bloom like a flower.
We, too, will make a change.
Hand in hand, we can replace the old frame;
Our awareness is a promising superpower.
