This poet is written by William Saroyan, the one in the picture is him 1908-1981

William Saroyan’s Poem:

I SHOULD LIKE TO SEE
ANY POWER OF THE WORLD DESTROY THIS RACE,
THIS SMALL TRIBE OF UNIMPORTANT PEOPLE,
WHOSE WARS HAVE ALL BEEN FOUGHT AND LOST,
WHOSE STRUCTURES HAVE CRUMBLED, LITERATURE IS UNREAD, MUSIC
IS UNHEARD, AND PRAYERS ARE NO MORE ANSWERED.
GO AHEAD, DESTROY ARMENIA SEE IF YOU CAN DO IT.
SEND THEM INTO THE DESERT WITHOUT BREAD OR WATER.
BURN THEIR HOMES AND CHURCHES.
THEN SEE IF THEY WILL NOT LAUGH,
SING AND PRAY AGAIN.
FOR WHEN TWO OF THEM MEET ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD,
SEE IF THEY WILL NOT CREATE A NEW ARMENIA.
