“Puisi Terima Kasih untuk Bill gates dan IHF”

Oleh: Taufiq Ismail

Di dalam sehari HIV/AIDS
Membunuh 19 orang Indonesia
Di dalam sehari malaria
Membunuh 22 orang Indonesia
Di dalam sehari tuberkulosis
Membunuh 180 orang Indonesia
Terima kasih anda dan IHF telah membantu kami.

Tapi jangan diabaikan
Bahwa di dalam sehari asap rokok
Membunuh 1.100 orang Indonesia.

Ini sudah berlangsung sejak abad ke-20
Dimulai pada dekade ketiga pembantaian terjadi
Dan perusahaan rokok dengan cerdik-bulusnya
Menyalahkan dan memanipulasi adiksi massa
Dan mereka menjadi super kaya-raya dalam ukuran dunia
Sambil tertawa-tawa melaksanakan pejagalan raksasa
1.100 perokok langganan setia mereka
Ditipu lalu dibunuh setiap harinya
Melalui 25 macam penyakit penyebab fatalnya
Inilah masaker paling dahsyat dalam sejarah dunia
Melebihi Nazisme dan Komunisme
Pembantaiannya.

Loosely translation:

“A Gratitude Poem for Bill Gates and IHF”

By: Taufiq Ismail

Within a day HIV/AIDS
Killing 19 Indonesian people
Within a day malaria
Killing 22 Indonesian people
Within a day tuberculosis
Killing 180 Indonesian people
Thanks for you and IHF have helped us.

But do not be ignored
That cigarette smoke in a day
Killing 1,100 Indonesian people.

It has been going on since the 20th century
Beginning in the third decade the massacres occurred
And tobacco companies with their guiles
Blame on and manipulate mass addiction
And they became super rich in world size
Laughing carry a giant slaughterhouse
1,100 smokers of their loyal subscription
Deceived then killed every day
Through 25 kinds of diseases causing fatal
This is the most terrible massacre in the history of the world
Exceeded Nazism and Communism
Their massacres.

Jakarta, 7 April, 2014.
