Why !
Why this, Why that?
I am tired of the Why.

***

It’s been ages since my Why is looking for yours!
And our Why in heaps cry on the ground!
Why is this great judge who dares not resolve himself!
Who would dare dissolve it?

***

A door is open to me. I enter, and they shout to me: Why!
This door leads neither left nor right!
To me the handle and to you the lock!

***

So do not pretend to find a safer way!
Between seven mountains and seven valleys was born the Why!
And the one who gave him life is still asleep!
Why clears the stars and whales the moon,
Nobody has born him and he gives birth to a thousand worries!
I have already found it in my apostles,

***

Here I am dragging mine and leave you yours …
Where do we throw each his own Why?
And let’s do one and common for all of us.
A Why Kingdom that will purify our rights of all these quips.
Nobody knew Why before knowing the first who shouted!
The breath is witness to it, it makes the flute cry.

***

Without seeing them sink on the ground, we know the tears of struggle
Why are the Ribab’s fingers crying the nets?
Why and Sigh are eternal brothers
Ask the wind that swells the hills,

***

And who soaks the boats in mountains of water!
Why, easy to say, gives birth to a thousand sighs!
They follow the great path, hand in hand …
What is there before the birth of Why!
Where does this demon come from, which makes all bitter delights?
Who undoes what must remain united,
And knots what must remain open

***
