Di Bawah Pohon Tumbang - Under the Fallen Tree


Sayup-sayup terdengar alunan biola dari seberang
Petikan gitar mendayu-dayu mengikuti irama
Embun pagi masih bersarang di dedaunan
Matahari belum terik namun hangat bersinar
Berkolaborasi dengan lembabnya udara

Di kejauhan
Seorang wanita terduduk di bawah pohon tumbang, ia menangis
Tiba-tiba saja terdengar hentakan piano, lalu dentuman drum
Musik semakin keras, keras, KERAS.

Ia berteriak
Bagaimana bisa engkau membenci seorang pembunuh
Bila engkau tak pernah melihatnya membunuh
Dan bagaimana bisa engkau merasa lebih baik dari seorang penghina
Apabila engkau belum pernah menghina

Ia melompat
Lalu ia tertawa
Dunia begitu menarik
Dunia sangat jenaka

Lalu ia terdiam
Dan terduduk di bawah pohon tumbang

---

A faint sound came from the other side
Excerpts of guitar lilting to the rhythm
Morning dew still nest on their other leaves
The sun is not hot, yet warm
Collaborate in humid air

On a distance
A woman sat down under a fallen tree, she cried
Suddenly a piano spoke, then a drum
The music is getting louder, louder, LOUDER

She shouted
How can you hate a murderer?
If you have never seen her killing
And how can you feel better than a hater?
If you have never been hate


She jumped
Then she laughed
The world is so interesting
The world is very funny

Then she fell silent
And sitting under a fallen tree
