“It’s Also Fine” by Palestinian poet Mourid Barghouti

mbargouti itsalsofine meme

I found the Hebrew translation of this fine poem in my Facebook feed today, translated (from an English translation) and posted by Eli Eliahu.
I didn’t know of Maroud Barghouti before this, & a Google search brought me to some more English translations of fine poems by him (though without the translator/s’ names), including this one that I particularly respond to.
You can find more poems by him & also a very interesting brief biography on http://www.poemhunter.com/mourid-barghouti/
