A poem by the Tunisian poet:Chahm Ben Messaoud

et me tell everyone a very sad story.

Of a country that faced oppression for many years.

The story of the people who wanted to be set free

But was trapped in a cage inspite of the revolution they greatly accomplished.

We at the time were so cheerful that tears were pouring from people’s eyes.

At that time we were so amazed by our victory

But the rest of the arabs were shockingly surprised.

Our revolution has shaken many thrones

Therefore they never stopped their conspiracy.

All over the country you see young people thirsty for freedom,

so His majesty has given a speech,

« O people I understood you now, I was really misled

but I am not the sun to shine on all the country

however, I will make sure that the wrongdoers will get the punishment they deserve. »

That night we found his hypocrite choir cheering on all the streets and they said, « The dawn shall rise », thinking we would be tricked.

We gathered on a cold winter day and we went out on the streets thundering.

We rushed towards them, young and old, not fearing their oppressing sticks

The sound of the bullets flying from their guns

has pierced our ears.

We swore to rip apart a regime that afflicted harm

To Carthage we rushed steps determined to overthrow zin ellabidine

So he rushed to the airport and fled the country with his family like a bunch of cowards

And with our blood we liberated slaves who turn to be ungrateful

Running from stage to stage crediting themselves for this revolution

After they were jailed and exiled, we gave them power and lived like royalty

Then we became a prey in between the jaws of those hungry wolves ‘

My pain and sorrow is so deep for this country who was taken hostage

we thought we were relieved that we kicked out a thief but unfortunately we end it up with hundreds more like him.

معارضة لمعلّقة عمرو ابن كلثوم  » ألا هبّي بصحنك فأصبحينا »

 

شعر شهم بن مسعود       (البحر الوافر)

 

أَلَا أَرْوِي لَكُمْ قَصَصًا حَزِينَا

عَلَى بَلَدٍ أَضَاعَ لَهُ سِنِينَا

 

عَلَى شَعْبٍ أَرَادَ العَيْشَ حُرَّا

فَصَارَ بِرَغْمِ ثَوْرَتِهِ سَجِينَا

 

صَنَعْنَا ثَوْرَةً وَبِهَا فَرِحْنَا

وَ أَبْكَيْنَا المَآقِيَ و العُيُونَا

 

تَبَاهَيْنَا بِهَا طُولًا و عَرْضَا

و كان العُرْبُ يَوْمَها ذاهِلِينا

 

بِثَوْرَتِنَا تَزَعْزَعَتْ العُرُوشُ

فَهَبُّوا كُلَّ حِينٍ كَائِدِينا

 

فَفِي كُلِّ البِلَادِ تَرَى شَبَابَا

إلى الحُرِيَّةِ مُتَلَهِّفِينا

 

و قَد أَلْقَى سِيَادَتُهُ خِطَابَا

فَهِمْنَاكُمْ أَلَا قَد ضَلَّلُونا

 

و لَسْتُ الشَّمْسَ كَيْ أُضْوِي عَلَيْكم

رُوَيْدَكُمُ أَلَا سَيُحَاسَبُونا

 

و أَخْرَجَ ذَاتَ جَوْقَتِهِ إلَيْنَا

على كُلِّ الدُّرُوبِ مُطَبِّلِينا

 

و قَالُوا إنَّ بَعْدَ اللَّيْلِ فَجْرَا

و ظَنُّوا أَنْ نُغَفَّلَ أَوْ نَلِينا

 

تَجَمَّعْنَا و كان اليَومُ بَرْدَا

خَرَجْنا لِلشَّوارِعِ هَادِرِينا

 

تَدَافَعْنا لَهُمْ شِيبًا شَبَابًا

و لَمْ نَرْهَبْ عَصَاةَ الظَّالِمِينا

 

تَطَايَرَ مِنْ بَنَادِقِهِمْ رَصَاصٌ

يَطِنُّ غَدَا مَسَامِعَنا طَنِينا

 

و أَقْسَمْنَا بِأَنْ يَجْثُو نِظَامٌ

أَهَانَ الغَثَّ فِينَا و السَّمِينا

 

و قَالَ إنْذاكَ قَائلُنا هَرِمْنَا

لِصَوْتِهِ نَسْمَعُ الآنَ رَنِينا

 

إلى قَرْطَاجَ سَارَعْنا مَسِيرًا

نُناشِدُ خَلْعَ زَيْنِ العَابِدِينا

 

فَهَرْوَلَ لِلمَطارِ يَمُوتُ ذُعْرَا

وَ فَرَّ هُوَ وَ أَهْلُهُ صَاغِرِينا

 

و حُلَّ تَجَمُّعٌ نَجِسٌ كَرِيهٌ

و ظَلُّوا مُدَّةً مُتَلَحِّفِينا

 

و حَرَّرَتْ الدِّمَاءُ لنا عَبِيدًا

تَرَاهُمْ أَصْبَحُوا مُسْتَأْسِدِينا

 

يَجُوبُونَ المَنَابِرَ نَافِخِينَ

صُدُورًا عَلَّهُمْ يَتَطَهَّرُونا

 

و قَدَّمْنَا أُناسًا لِلْكَرَاسِي

و كانوا في الشَّتَاتِ مُهَجَّرِينا

 

تَرَاهُمْ في القُصُورِ الشَّامِخَاتِ

و كانوا قَبْلَ ذَلِكَ مُعْدَمِينا

 

فَصِرْنا لُقْمَةً كَفُتَاتِ لَحْمٍ

تَلَاقَفَهَا ذِئابٌ جَائِعُونا

 

كَبِيرَانِ هُمَا أَلَمِي و حُزْنِي

على البَلَدِ الّذِي أَضْحَى رَهِينا

 

فَرِحْنَا أَنْ طَرَدْنَا مِنْهُ لِصَّا

فَوَا أَسَفَاهُ صَارُوا أَرْبَعِينا
