I am the one who haunts your memoriesat night that appears in you dreamsYour days I grace with my thoughtson the TV screen I appearTo give you guilt and fearYou may have walked farCrossed the desert on footgone beyond the oceanLeaving your own continentI see you flocking out of my landMy eyes weep as sadness settles in my heartI am the mother that roams the city streetssearching for foodmy children clinching my handtheir cry echoing in your earsI am the farmer in tattered clothscratching the dry landin the hope of growing his foodI speak many languagesI have many religionsmy ethnicity quite diverseI am the sick with out hopethe jailedthat dreams of freedomas flying is natural to a birdI am the freedom seekerwho has been unjustly killedToday I come to you my childas the executioner bangs on my doorready to mutilate me ethnicallyslice me up with his hateful spearI come to you my childto help me keep my dignitydon't let them destroy my diverse beautyI want you to tell my storyI want you to change my quite whisperin to a lions roaryou may not sit at their power tablebut you can stand at their gateyour out cry may not be on their news worthy listbut my child you can cause turbulence in their heartthey may be quick to give me almsclaim that my land is at peacesay there is plenty of democracy for mebut fight my child take a firm standas I will not settlefor less than what my children had earnedMy child don't let me lose my freedomthe pride I have always hadCome stand with your peoplecome help push the executioners handToday I come to you my childas the executioner bangs on my doorready to mutilate me ethnicallycut me up with his hateful spearI come to you my childto help me keep my dignity
ET, You are a splendid writer! (Got your link from Slate.)You should consider writing about Ethiopian politics for the MSM... maybe you do already? Question- I figured what "ferengie" means, but not "Fara". Explain please? Enjoyed my stay. Dave
heh heh http://www.milkhoney.org/cartman/favorite cartman quote: Cartman: You have rats in your house, too, Kenny?Kenny: Mm-hm.Cartman: Seriously, you better stop being so poor or else I'm gonna start huckin' rocks at you.
Good workkeep it upuntil the tyrant is removed from the back of our people and countrypower to the Ethiopian power
David,Here is an example of the prototype Fara (big F):Got this private email from someone called "Tigistu Aleke" firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't worry about the Amharic.U jurks, it has been long since the power has come back to those who have to have it. u talk about 3000 years history which most of it belongs to the Tigrayan heros. Amhara's power came only after the stone head Minilik II. and amhara will never come to power from now on wards. Ende-enatachihu tut, enrm belut. Yemote zemed yelachum?Am glad that my father is from Tigray and my mam is Oromo, neither belong to the trush amhara people.and it is only today that i came to visit ur web site, fool of trush, and articles full of hatrade. It will not be too far when TPLF joins with OLF and crush amara. u will be sandwiched. u have lost the trust of Tigray people. it is good that the leaders from Tigray have managed properly the crisis in year 1997. we are proud of them. Count on me, TPLF members (even those onthe top) have convinced them selves that they have to build Tigray, economically and politically. after that guess what will come.................................... why do we live wiht amhara who hate every body who is different from them.God bless Tigray and Oromia.You geddid? That's the EPRDF's base. Thanks for playing "Who is a Fara?"ETW
Wonqette, the real cartman is a power mongering, hippie detesting, havoc-wrecking, two-face having, school-hating, foul mouthed, despicable xenophobic malapropist extraordinaire who’d sell his mother for attention. what’s that got to do with…. Oh. ‘kay.
ET Wonkette, Yeawzah! I geddid. Thanks, DP
ET Wonkette - if I may call you that... Just finished your "Melesization of Jeffrey Sachs", and I laughed my a** off with your excellent analysis and retort! I am no Nancy but I was born into her race, of which I am currently very embarrased. The next sound you hear is me applauding your work. clap,clap, clap, clap, clap!Loved the Harvard | Dartmouth reference... cheers!
