KİBAR HIRSIZIN TÜRKÜSÜ

 

Anamın ipiyle indim gökdelen damınızdan

Kelebek gibi girdim kelebek camınızdan

Taksinize mülkünüze dairenize...

Heceleyerek üzerinde ayak ve el uçlarımın

Belledim seyyarenizi ve kelimelerinizi...

Gözlerinize baktım, mukaddes ciltlerinize, büfelerinize

Vesairenize...

Şiir fenerimle de baktım, son çığlık!

Aşk yokmuş sizde beş paralık!

Gidiyorum ben boşçakallar

Sıçmışım ortalık yerinize

Kıçımın fosforuyla aydınlanın siz artık

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

 

Balad of a Polished Thief

 

I came down with my mom´s rope from the roof your skyscraper.

Like a butterfly through your window, I went into 

Your cars, your apartments, your possesions.

By spelling on my toes and finger tips,

I have learnt everything about you.

I have looked at your eyes, your cupboards, your holy books

And the rest.

I looked at them with my torch of poetry, the last cry!

There is no love worth for a penny  in you.

I am leaving you, you empty hyenas.

And I have left my dung in the middle of you,

You enlighten yourself with the phosphor of my ass from now on..

 

My try.. (I have always wanted to try this one
