a country in the leader’s eyes

Amharic is not a language I understand. Fortunately someone took time and knowledge and poetic sense to translate a poem written by Misrak Terefe. 

She is a performance artist who wrote this poem about the way we can look at the country of Ethiopia. Through the eyes of the political leaders and through the eyes of the people.

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
