Etuoikeus / Privilege



TFG (TONTTU)
January, 2019


Luin juuri, ettei muka saisi kuulemma tappaa kevään ensimmäistä kimalaista...
[I just read, that one apparently should not kill the first bumblebee of the spring...]

Millähän oikeudella minulta yritetään viedä viimeisetkin iloni?
[And with what authority are they trying to take away one of my very last joys?]

Tai en oikeastaan ole moisesta ennen edes haaveillut, mutta nyt pistää miettimään,
[Well, in fact I have not even dreamt about such a deed, but now it makes me wonder,]

miksi minulta halutaan moinen oikeus riistää...
[why do they want to deprive me of that right...]

Varataanko moinen etuoikeus jollekin tietylle ihmisryhmälle?
[Is that priority reserved for a certain group of people?]

Etuoikeutetuille, joille tästä on muodostunut vuosisatainen perinne?
[For privileged people, for whom this has become a tradition throughout centuries?]

Ja jos näin on, miksi en ole yksi heistä?
[And if so, why am I not one of them?]

Ja mitäpä jos vain tartun tuumasta toimeen ja rikon tätä alentavaa käskyä?
[And what if I just go for it and break against this degrading commandment?]

Pääsisin varmasti osaksi eliittiä!
[Surely I would become part of the elite!]

Hion suunnitelmani täydelliseksi ja jään odottamaan talven loppumista...
[I refine my plan to perfection and wait for the winter to end...]


Happy listening!
Zig
