Zoran Hercigonja: From A Rodent To An Eagle

The light does not lose power.

It reveals and wounds.

Chained by the rock of dense materialism

We dare to pray to a disembodied god.

Crucified and exhausted on the edge of solitude,

We follow the painful trail of obscurantism.

The future and stupidity were born from

progressive liver cirrhosis.

For the first time a life perspective

I'm changing from a rodent to an eagle.
