Sisyphus & Afghanistan


Sisyphus & Afghanistan



Like the rock of Sisyphus

It rolls back to the same abyss

The drags of years, lives, sacrifices

Till the Sisyphus realize

That you can’t help Afghanistan

The pit is where it belongs.

They chose that void for themselves

Let them be in their cage. 

Till the time

The next Sisyphus arrives.
