THANKS GIVING By Araik Margarian Kurt Vonnegut said: `We all are inmates On the planet Earth'. If that is it, Shouldn't we thank guards For every bit of goods? For job and family, For friends and for health, For love and for food. And when step by step They take goods away, We still appreciate The miracle of life And the hope to revive. We all are hostages On invisible stage, We are brought here Against our will, Let argue with me Who was born with smile. But then amazingly We all get addicted To miracle of life And don't want give up. And the times when the guards Think of releasing us, We yell with all hearth. Hey, don't cheat on God, On this divine planet We haven't celebrated Our centennial yet. -- Araik Margarian was born in Yerevan. He writes poems in English and Armenian. He has lived in Boston since 1992.
