Paris it’s your turn now to be red-handed with Kurdish girls’ blood

Kurdishaspect.com - By Kamal Mirawdely

Translated from the original Kurdish

Oh, Paris, it’s your turn now!  

You turned my eyes into a red stream

And my soul into a black-clad stature

You betrayed Helen

And killed Sakina, the tranquillity of heart and mind,

May you be sacrificed to Fidan hundred times,

With your cold feeling and empty heart!

Layla was a new fiancé 

She was passionately in love with Qandil

But with the lure of beauty and liberty

The sacredness of love and happy dreams

You attracted these three fairies to yourself

Treacherously let them settle on your lap

And then called upon the slaughterers

They cut their heads off like sheep

Paris you are still the Bastille for Kurds

Without care, concern and principles

How can I have an iota of happiness and joy

In this city again?

Everywhere I look

I see Layla with her blood-covered complexion and deep groans.

Paris, Paris!!

It was your turn

To redden your hands with Kurdish girls’ blood 

And turn my soul into a black-clad stature.

=================================

Notes: 

In Greek mythology, Paris was the young and beautiful prince of Troy whose love affair with Helen caused the Trojan war.

Sakina, Fidan and Layla are the first names of the three Kurdish female PKK activists assassinated in Paris on 10th January in the Kurdish Information Centre in Paris.

Qandil is a formidable mountain range in Kurdistan where PKK freedom-fighters are based.

The Bastille was a fortress in Paris, used as a state prison by the kings of France. It was stormed by a crowd on 14 July 1789 in the French Revolution.
