A Splendid Sight

Optimistic Little Poem

Now and then it happens

that somebody shouts for help

and somebody else jumps in at once

and absolutely gratis.

Here in the thick of the grossest capitalism

round the corner comes the shining fire brigade

and extinguishes, or suddenly

there’s silver in the beggar’s hat.

Mornings the streets are full

of people hurrying here and there without

daggers in their hands, quite equably

after milk or radishes.

As though in a time of deepest peace.

A splendid sight.

Hans Magnus Enzenberger, translated by David Constantine
