Luc De Vos
The Birds

“Now, 30 years later, the son of a leader has become the new great leader. He was already Mayor of Aalbeke, succeeding his father. He had been elected with a monster majority. Nobody could stand up to these people. These people were afraid of no one. Shouldn’t someone like me stand up in order to finally make those people afraid, not with words but with deeds? A great deed, a good deed, a deed of the Word, of my Word, the Word of the way, the truth and the life.”

The story explains the background to an incident between a priest and a politician. In 1978 the priest taught music and religion at a school in Aalbeke when first introduced to the “blond boy with his curly head” who would become his country’s leader.

'The Birds’ by Luc De Vos was translated by Michael O’Loughlin. It’s read by Chris Chambers.
