stand up and yell: NO! (anti-WTO poeTry kit)

Before
Yehuda Amichai

Before the gate has been closed,
before the last quetion is posed,
before I am transposed.
Before the weeds fill the gardens,
before there are no pardons,
before the concrete hardens.
Before all the flute-holes are covered,
beore things are locked in then cupboard,
before the rules are discovered.
Before the conclusion is planned,
before God closes his hand,
before we have nowhere to stand.

之前

﹣﹣耶胡達.阿米亥

在大門關閉之前,
在最後的問題被提出之前,
在我被顛倒之前。
在雜草長滿花園之前,
在不再有寛恕之前,
在水泥變硬之前,
在所有笛孔被蓋住之前,
在東西被鎖在碗櫃裡之前,
在規律被發現之前。
在結論被設計好之前,
在上帝握攏他的手之前,
在我們無處站立之前。

﹣1948

標題係咪漏左個 "t" 字呢?

我更喜歡昨天智海手上拿著的但丁^^:
The hottest places in hell is reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.

題外話:
- 昨天我遇上了你兩週前遇上的事(引出8x個留言的那事)。好灰~
- 這個anti-wto週請加油&保重!
