So long, Bampis

20 min ago, gone

That was it, and so long !

He understood our presence.  

_ Ti kaneis agoraki mou ?  I came to see you.  I’m here.

He squeezed the hand.  He moved his head a bit.  He understood.  And, then, he was gone !  Where did he go ? 

– If you ask me, i have no idea !  He was here, wasn’t he ?  He squeezed the hand.  He moved his head a bit.  He understood.  He was here ! 

He was strong.  He was confident.  He was an optimist.  He was generous.  A wonderful husband and father.  A wonderful businessman.  And he had a smile, always.  

He loved US.  He loved Greece.  He loved the place he was born, somewhere in Russia, or ex CCCP, or ex Soviet Union.

1934, and there he is !  Somewhere at Grozny.  I think.  Fucken greeks all over !  1934, a pure, and poor boy.  Somewhere at Grozny.  I think.  Fucken politicians all over !

– We have to leave.  We have to… We must… Political turbulence !  We have to… We must go on !

Fucken wars all over !
