Magda Magdy: Female Patriarchy

Per Munther

Per Munther

City of red brick and infinite dishes,

Bureaucratic temples turned hotels

And hyperventilating masses in the Metro:

Claustrophobic Qahera,

Garbage capital,

Oppressive sharmouta

Who contains me:

You swallow us whole

In your Nile-stretched koss,

By your blind servitude

To the Rayess,

Eating our flesh,

Spitting our bones.

.

Qahera: Cairo
Sharmouta: whore
Koss: pussy
Rayess: president, chief
