Special note:

It is impossible to literally translate the first and last lines of this haiku from English to French without running to too many syllables. This frequently happens when we try to translate haiku from one language to another, let alone from English to French. We simply do the best we can.

Il est impossible de traduire littéralement la première et la dernière ligne de cet haiku d’anglais en français sans utiliser trop de syllabes. Ce phénomène se produit très souvent quand on essaie de tranduire des haikus d’une langue à une autre, que se soit l’anglais et le français ou n’importe quelles autres langues. L’on fait simplement de son mieux.

My Sonnet pursuant to the 2 haiku about sheep: Easy Prey


Easy Prey

easy-prey-greek

Matthew 18:12

What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them
has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains
and go in search of the one that went astray?


Since Hell’s self resurrected on the mad,
the sane dare not consort with the insane,
unless they find themselves as ironclad
in mind as soul to shear across the grain
of equipoise and suffer the untold,
to cast themselves on Sinai’s desert rocks,
to wander off  and stray beyond the fold
where they’ll fall easy prey to Satan’s hawks.
But pause... and ask yourself if you’d submit
to humiliation, the same embraced
by martyrs such as they, or counterfeit,
and by the latter token be defaced.
      The wolf has left his lair, and shall attack
      the sane and the insane... and can’t turn back.
