Poem by Adelina Pali

Mind your manners, Mr. of white collars
You, pretty ma’am in golden ornaments!
I don’t bow to you, tho’ you have powers,
I’ve a chaste soul, not metal sentiments.

So beware, you rich man in a limousine
Like the street dogs in a hopeless venture
You pretty lady who pretends to be a queen
People lose their humanism by their behavior,


I have no wealth, no flat, no chateau,
But my soul is a treasure of kindness.
Mind your manners, Mr. Snout Potato,
You lady of Gucci, Chanel and evil blindness.

Translation from Albanian to English
By Alfred Kola
