Lost in the Desert

“Our community is expanding: MRZine viewers have increased in number, as have the readers of our editions published outside the United States and in languages other than English.  We sense a sharp increase in interest in our perspective and its history.   Many in our community have made use of the MR archive we put online, an archive we plan to make fully searchable in the coming years.   Of course much of the increased interest is from cash-strapped students in the metropolis, and from some of the poorest countries on the globe.  For those of us able to help this is an extra challenge.   We can together keep up the fight to expand the space of socialist sanity in the global flood of the Murdoch-poisoned media.  Please write us a check today.” — John Bellamy Foster

In a book of Persian proverbs

I find:

یکی با پنبه سر می‌برد یکی با شمشیر

This one kills with a sword,

That one, with cotton.

Wisdom of the ages

Abandoned by wanderers

Lost in the desert

To whom

Even an old shoe

Is a gift from God.


Yoshie Furuhashi is editor of MRZine.  She is indebted to Mojtaba Aghamohammadi for the two proverbs used in this poem.
