Poem: a lecture concerning

  
              A lecture concerning 


                                      Konya, June  11, 2015


The Dean of Law

Big woman lectured Americans

on what it is



Ataturk

to be a Turk


They have made, her assistant said

snapped her fingers

little man with round glasses

no book


as if Governor Wallace stood

on the steps of a school

General Salan

ordered


Everyone speaks she says

Kurd   Algerian   black

of their human


no book of their own


she stared at questions

NO ONE cares


about our RIGHTS




and stormed away
