I hope to be hysterically hilarious. But maybe I'm just hysterical.
This will be the most depressive statue I’ve ever seen.
What are they so depressed about?
I wonder about that myself — all sculpture from the period of real socialism however looks like this: serious faces, either determined or depressed. I have no explanation for it…
They Too Shall Pass
I cannot look
As they burn our land
No affording to pay
They take it all
Now we have nothing
He stares on with strong eyes
But I cannot bare it
I know the hardship to come
I know his humiliation
He braves onward for our little one
I will brave onward later
For now I cannot look
For now I simply comfort with a touch
But someday…someday…I will comfort
Someday they will burn

Oh my, this is as depressive as the statue… It reminds me very much of one Czech poem, “The Night of Job” by Frantisek Hrubin, which however doesn’t seem to have been translated into English, so I can’t share. You did an excellent job in matching the poem to the picture. You always do.
They do look sad don’t they. And the poem goes so well with the photographs.
The poem and the photo is an excellent match! I don’t know how Ronovan does it, that he always finds the right words! I’m happy to have him contributing 🙂
