POETRY

Bżonn
Ġesù d-dgħajsa ta’ Pietru u oħra mlielhom
bil-ħut; dawk kważi għerqu bir-ruxxmata,
u kieku qlewhom u ċ-ċips riedu magħhom,
kien jipprovdi bi bżonn għalqa patata.

 

 

 

A need
Peter’s boat and yet another Jesus filled
with fish. He almost sank the lot.
Had they fried them and wished for chips
a whole potato field he would have got.

Translated from the Maltese by Claudia Gauci
