The SCARECROW

By Kahlil Gibran

 

Once I said to a scarecrow, “You must be tired of standing in this

lonely field.”

 

And he said, “The joy of scaring is a deep and lasting one, and I

never tire of it.”

 

Said I, after a minute of thought, “It is true; for I too have

known that joy.”

 

Said he, “Only those who are stuffed with straw can know it.”

 

Then I left him, not knowing whether he had complimented or belittled

me.

 

A year passed, during which the scarecrow turned philosopher.

 

And when I passed by him again I saw two crows building a nest

under his hat.

Scarecrow is something frightening but not dangerous. Aims to scare birds from damaging crops in the fields.

 

Scarecrow here tells the story of a conditioning your region in a state of war. He built from the rubble of war.

 

Grenades and chain as the symbol: the supply of arms will continue to flow strongly in that area.

 

Barbed wire and apples as a symbol:

a state of war would be very painful for civilians, from birth to death he felt tormented by barbed wire. State of siege lasted very long, from birth to death, from green to rot, from generation to generation. This is something sad for us all.

 

two crows as a symbol: puzzle, who actually make the region in a state in a state of war. seemed to be peace in the region difficult upheld.

 

Scarecrow intended to scare anyone trying to make the region's peace.
