Poem: Ich and Der Unterschied
 

Neue Banater Zeitung Volkskalender 1983

Bettina Gros

I'm not compromising:
against the capricious weather
I am holding on
to my headache

The difference 

frogs
are croaking
while sitting on the water
people
are keeping themselves above the water
and keep on complaining
