Beautiful poem. Glad you pointed to it. The reading of it is done so well.

A beautiful and timeless poem. The ending, “Now what’s going to happen to us without barbarians?/Those people were a kind of solution,” tells you all you need to know about modern politics.
This poem is certainly one of cavafy’s finest, perhaps second only to (my favorite) “Exiles” and “Ithaka.”
