Bulat Okudjava

BULAT OKUDJAVA: "Oh, You, Fancies..."

"Oh, You, Fancies..."

Oh, you, fancies on the subject 
Of defeating bad by good!
In our Solar System, abject,
You’re for demolition put.

And a dump with you is crazy:
It is roaring like a sea…
I don’t pity those fancies –
I just pity you and me.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, September, 2002
