Sunday morning TV matinee:



Schostakovitsch –

The piano playing composers.

Rach with intense longing for

His Russia

The avant-gardist Prokofiev

With expressive tonal painting

And the badly repressed Schosta’s

Incarcerated life between

Acclaim and derogatory kicks

By the ‘Great Dictator’.

The poet had been enthralled

By the show of Greek mythology


His first contact with it at the age

Of thirteen.

The great tragedy of Troy with

The Gods involved in the epic war

That still carries on today

Regardless of all peace efforts

By men in power.

Only the will for making peace

Will be leading to a result

A will for pursuing peace by all!
