Petri György: Elegy (A rude planet) (Elégia (Durva planéta) in English)

Portre of Petri György

Elégia (Durva planéta) (Hungarian)

Durva planéta ez,
itt élsz
már ötven, vagy hány ezer éve?
Ostoba bánkódásnak itt helye nincsen
Győz az ököljog,
lapít a vén disznó,
sunyít Isten.

Elegy (A rude planet) (English)

A rude planet this is
you live here
for fifty or for how many thousands of years
There is no room here for stupid sadness
Might makes Right is winning;
an old lurking pig,
God is hiding.
