Letter Revolution — Nekropsi

If a cow bought from a fire worshipper
Doesn’t let its new owner milk it
The new owner may masquerade as a fire worshipper
— Well said god bless you professor!

What’s going on, what does it mean?
Do explain!

The coming revolution was
Being popularized bit by bit

It’ll gradually turn into
A language, thought revolution
Letter revolution

Professors!
The cow is the contemporary civilization!

Liberating the young brains
From the effects of a
Bankrupt, outdated
Uncivilized thought

The bad one goes
The good one comes

It’s rich with vowels:
A E O Ö U Ü I İ

It’s the unbelievable taking place

Those low voices even
The deaf king of Egypt hears
Do listen to another voice

(Harf Devrimi)


English: Işık Barış Fidaner
