Parker, Dorothy: Csalódottság (Frustration in Hungarian)

Portre of Parker, Dorothy

Frustration (English)

If I had a shiny gun,

I could have a world of fun

Speeding bullets through the brains

Of the folk who give me pains;


Or had I some poison gas,

I could make the moments pass

Bumping off a number of

People whom I do not love.


But I have no lethal weapon –

Thus does Fate our pleasure step on!

So they still are quick and well

Who should be, by rights, in hell.

Csalódottság (Hungarian)

Lett volna fényes puskám,

elmókáztam volna tán,

golyókkal szórva agyát,

kik fájdalmam okozták.


Mérges gáz, ha lett volna,

elütöm időm; sorra

ledöntök oly sok embert,

kiket nem szenvedhetek.


Fegyverem nincs halálos,

csak végzet tarol mármost;

Így, kik pokolra valók,

még fürgék, s ficánkolók.
