Oversettelse av diktet En prest i USA fra norsk (bokmål) til engelsk / translation of the poem En prest I USA form Norwegian to English.
A priest in the the USA,
A priest in the USA that is a little weird,
Burned Quran at a campfire,
He wanted to protest against something,
And became the reason for someone had to die.
They became killed as a protest,
That the priest did was grotesque,
But do you think the priest cared,
No he was not at all sorry.
Believed he the dead and their abandoned,
He warmly for this would thank,
No they will probably not do it,
Let’s hope the dead find peace.
The priest knew that something like this would happen,
So why did he do so,
Well, he sat himself to judge of all those,
Who feel Quran’s message calling on them.
What right has he to do so,
Why can he not create peace?
With the lives of others he plays,
When he point like this against the Quran,
He follows not the biggest of the commandments,
Although he is a priest in a church,
What was really wrong with burning it?
Yes, he knew that someone would then die.
That he knew this is his great sin,
Of all also those who are dear to him,
He should be blamed for this,
And I believe many do.
Such misanthropy should be punished,
And a law against such should be obtained,
But let us hope that the priest receives his punishment,
And that it will ease the grieve for the bereaved
