Poetry in Translation

Bolshevik Russia

by Mohammed Iqbal

A revelation rained on the Russians:
Guardians of the Crucifix
Appoint yourselves
Gods of godlessness
Smash those false idols
Worshipped by the faithful:
At heart, the world’s a whore.

Translated from the original Urdu by Rafiq Kathwari / @brownpundit
