“Barbarian and Ms Daisy” – A Poem on Armenian, Assyrian and Greek genocides by poet Serkan Engin (Turkey)

Dear friends,

Probably you remember me, because you had already published some of my articles criticising Islam.

I am the first Turkish poet in history who have written a poem about Armenian,
Assyrian and Greek genocides of our Turkish ancestors named “Barbarian and Ms Daisy” which had been accepted to the “Armenian Poetry Project” in 2014.

I wish you publish my poem too.

Best regards
Serkan Engin

Barbarian and Ms Daisy

(Dedicated to all victims of Armenian, Assyrian and Greek genocides perpetrated by my Turkish ancestors)

yes, you are right Ms Daisy, they came
with the wild winds of Greed, brutally
slaughtered all the innocent letters
written on the wall of Grace, even also babies
by burning them alive, before most of them
could not have a toy in their short-length life
with an insufferable last sequence

yes, you are right Ms Daisy, they were
merciless hyena droves born from
Racism, biggest evil of all times,
the bloody verses of Quran
written on the hilt of
their curved swords
feeding their violence
by promising them heaven
as they killed more “heretics”

they were the servants of
remorseless epaulets
they were the slaves of
their own Greed and Savageness
slobberingly

yes, you are right Ms Daisy, they
raped little girls and young women ferociously
without caring their screeches
tearing the deeply embarrassed face of the sky
same horrific verses on their groins
and the permission of pimp epaulets
on their ignoble waists
without any mercy

they were the slaves of
their own Greed and Savageness
slobberingly
they were the servants of
remorseless epaulets

and unfortunately
they were my ancestors
shame on humanity
worst predatory hordes of world history

now, it is hard to erase that “Barbarian” soubriquet
written on my forehead before my birth
it is hard to change to be known as savage
even I am a man feeding his ant friends
with granulated sugar at home
it is hard to explain that I have never hurt
even a wing of a sparrow
I know Ms Daisy, it is hard to introduce me
to your parents
as the man you want to live with
until infinity

Serkan Engin
