Hughes, Langston: Krisztus Alabamában (Christ in Alabama in Hungarian)

Portre of Hughes, Langston

Back to the translator

Christ in Alabama (English)

Christ is a Nigger,
Beaten and black –
O, bare your back.
Mary is His Mother
Mammy of the South,
Silence your Mouth.
God's His Father –
White Master above
Grant us your love.
Most holy bastard
Of the bleeding mouth:
Nigger Christ
On the cross of the South.

Krisztus Alabamában (Hungarian)

Láttam a Krisztust. Néger,
megkínzott s megvetett -
mutasd a testedet.
Az anyja Mária -
töpörödött mama.
„Hallgass" a te neved.
Az apja Isten -
Fehér úr az egekben,
ne hagyj itt szeretetlen.
Százszorszent fattyú,
csupa vér a szád:
néger Krisztus, ott-csüngsz hazád
Delének keresztjén.
