Anamýn ipiyle indim gökdelen damýnýzdan

Kelebek gibi girdim kelebek camýnýzdan

Taksinize mülkünüze dairenize...

Heceleyerek üzerinde ayak ve el uçlarýmýn

Belledim seyyarenizi ve kelimelerinizi...

Gözlerinize baktým, mukaddes ciltlerinize, büfelerinize


Þiir fenerimle de baktým, son çýðlýk!

Aþk yokmuþ sizde beþ paralýk!

Gidiyorum ben boþçakallar

Sýçmýþým ortalýk yerinize

Kýçýmýn fosforuyla aydýnlanýn siz artýk



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
