              A lecture concerning 


                                      Konya, June  11, 2015
The Dean of Law
Big woman lectured Americans
on what it is
Ataturk
to be a Turk
They have made, her assistant said
snapped her fingers
little man with round glasses
no book
as if Governor Wallace stood
on the steps of a school
General Salan
ordered
Everyone speaks she says
Kurd   Algerian   black
of their human
no book of their own
she stared at questions
NO ONE cares
about our RIGHTS

and stormed away
