In Kurdish speaks the Turk-Vezir!

Original poem in Kurdish and translation by Kamal Mirawdeli

In Kurdish speaks Kurdish the Turk-Vezir Speaks Kurdish the Turk-Vezir Kurdish sounds come out of his throat, Like the first surge of oil In a newly-dug well Rusty, unrefined -

The servants jump in joy

How generous is the Vezir! In return for 100 years of repressing our tongue, life and freedom He (t)utters some words of hypocrisy in Kurdish  And the children of Amad and Dersim Have been waiting for 100 years  To see a school in which they would  Learn the alphabet of their language Instead they saw Many prison doors Endless prisoners Many graveyards But what is wrong with all that? The Vezir uttered 17 Kurdish words Still for his gesture, He wants our oil and gas and market And to auction the future of Bakur and Rojava -

The slaves’ faces,  Like a newly-polished pair of black shoes, Are brightened up, happy, shiny

In Kurdish does speak the Turk-Vezir Thus the question of oil, sale of land, honour, market, history - What a fuss? Turkification of language, culture, city, – What a fuss?

Then we need not ask about the news of Ocelan, We need not ask the news of death,  Imprisonment, and torture, Cutting the tongues of children And we need not fear betraying Rojava In Kurdish speaks the Turk-Vezir!!

The slaves are thrilled.

Let us not ask about the exile of Nali Let us not ask about the sorrows of Haji Let us not ask about the blood of Said and Fuad Let us not ask about the mass graves of Dersim The humiliation of Ahmad Kaya and cruel punishment of Zana, for pronouncing Kurdish  In Kurdish does speak Turk-Vezir!

Let us tear up the Iraqi Constitution Let us sever all ties with Baghdad In Kurdish does speak Turk-Vezir!

How unhappy Saddam was, He did not learn Kurdish so that Along with his smart blue Kurdish costume He would lead Kurdish dance and sing Kurdish songs And say to his big Mustashars in Kurdish: Supas kura azakan! (Bravo, brave boys!).

The Turks are more intelligent! They know how to polish shoes
