ArieRoon-IKARUS
Death hangs around us
painting Arie Roon ~ Icarus


Death hangs around us

Death is all around us now
arriving on stealthy feet
or striking with thunderclaps
we all play deaf and dumb
don't want to hear or see
our complicity in this death
swallowed death into our body
and poisoning our soul
spit out – never take death in again
stop causing suffering and stealing life

Life is so easy for us to steal
we offer darkness – no room to play
take their precious freedom for our lust
offer suffering by imprisonment
abuse them for barbaric experiments
bring suffering and death
to them who's lives we do not own
make blood money through their pain
stop stealing life
so no death surrounds us anymore

The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western cruelty and barbarity.

~ Schopenhauer

Spanish:

La muerte merodea por nosotros,

la muerte está alrededor de nosotros ahora,
llegando a pies sigilosos o golpeando con truenos.
Todos jugamos sordos y mudos,
no quiero escuchar o ver nuestra
complicidad en esta muerte,
muerte que se alimenta de nuestro cuerpo y nuestra alma,
envenenamiento, escupe, nunca renaudan la muerte.
Deja que cause sufrimiento y roba la vida.
En la vida es tan fácil para nosotros robar,
ofrecemos oscuridad, no hay lugar para jugar.
Ofrecemos oscuridad, no hay lugar para jugar,
tome su preciada libertad para nuestra lujuria oferta,
sufriendo por encarcelamiento, abusan de ellos para experimentos bárbaros.
Trae sufrimiento y muerte a los que tienen vida,
no poseemos hacer dinero de sangre por medio de su dolor.
Deja de robar vida,
así que la muerte no nos rodea ya.
