Once there was a hafiz from Syhlet

Whose hidden devil made him a special bet

“My wager today

When you go to UK

All Quran in your heart, you’ll forget!”

What would Al Ghazali Say To Dylan Thomas

Dylan Thomas told us do not go gentle

Do not go gentle into that good night

Rage, rage against the dying of the light

But Al Ghazali said think not that death is  death

Nay it is life

Be not afraid when death draws the night

An Ode To Nikki Haley

Nikki Haley, I’m your friend,
Coz you’re such a smarty!
Your policies, I will never offend
So can I come to your party?
I’d love to eat some Trumpy treats!
With Zionists so hearty!
I just ordered a confederate flag
So can I come to your party?
I’d love to sit with piles of wit
Like you and Netanyahu
And see if you can pronounce the names of
Honduras, Palau and Togo.
You kicked ass in the UN
You cussed them like a yardie
One hundred and twenty-eight lost out
Coz they can’t come to your party!
Don’t worry I won’t shame you up
Or refer to you as Nimrata
I’ll hang upon your every word
Like Geeta, you’re my Rama!
Hanging out with you and Trump
It’s like being on safari!
Your policies I can not offend
Let me come to your party!!!
