Benevolent ( Translated into French )

 Benevolent ( Translated into French )
Dear friends
This is the seventh  poem of mine  which has been translated into French by none other than Honourable Athanase Vantchev de Thracy, World President of Poetas del Mundo , undoubtedly one of the greatest poets of contemporary French.
Mother nature
provides in abundance
for her children to feed
unabashedly they perform C-sections
to satiate their greed.

She is hacked  to death every day, every minute
like a golden goose
her sons and daughters make merry
forgetting they are tightening themselves
their own noose.

Yet being a mother, she does not tweet
reserving  them a berth
for ancestors to meet 
and offers her body for carving  out
a place measuring, six by two feet.

Notre Mère Nature
Fournit en abondance
De quoi se nourrir à ses enfants.
Et eux, sans vergogne,
Lui infligent mille blessures
Pour assouvir leur cupidité.

Elle est exploitée à mort chaque jour, chaque minute
Comme la poule aux œufs d’or.
Ses fils et ses filles se divertissent
Oubliant qu'eux-mêmes resserrent
Le nœud coulant
Autour de leur cou.

Pourtant, en tant que mère, elle ne chante pas
Le jour où elle trouve un lieu tragique
Où ils peuvent rencontrer leurs ancêtres
Et leur offre son corps pour qu’ils y creusent
Un trou de six pieds sur deux.
