SLANIKI
Vprašali so jih
po politicnem prepricanju.
Povedali so,
da so z Islandije.
Moderni pesnik
opozarja na propad.
Slaniki so bili
zaprti ves teden. v sodu.
in se usmradili.
Herrings
A barrel of herrings
came to Ljubljana.
They were questioned
about their political leaning:
They explained
they were from Iceland.
A modern poet
warns of decay.
The herrings were
held in the barrel for a week
and started to stink.
