FRATELLI BROTHERS
Bartolo Cattafi trans. Brian Cole

In fonda alla fossa
no ci sono leoni
non c' daniele
ma c' il prossimo tuo
fratellastri e fratelli
mostri verdastri
nella melma del fiele

At the bottom of the trench
there are no lions
there is no daniel
but there is your neighbour
half-brothers and brothers
greenish monsters
in the mire of bile
