"We'll Kill The Tyrant"


Francisco Zamora Loboch


Give me that old spear

That my father used

And the father of my father.

Bring me my new bow

And the quiver full of arrows.

I'm going to kill the tyrant.

Look at my eyes.

See my description.

I belong to a town of revolts.

Observe my creation

of skirmishes and uprisings

My hand will not shake.


give me that spear,

that old spear,

and there will be no more tyrants,

never any more dictators,

over my people, over your misery,

over your fear.
