Double Sin - Poem by Abdul Wahab

They came to me
With soft steps

With mild voice
Like a thief

Like a cat they wanted to steal the bones
Of fish from the plates of my meal

With smiles on their faces
They spoke sugar coated words

Some from holy books
Some from their own head

They wanted me to give up
They wanted me to give in

To their lies
Relinquish worldly delight

But they are, behind the curtain under the layer,
Run behind the worldly pleasure

I could have listen to them
If they were not caught in

Doing double dealings
Being a bunch of hypocrites

But I am telling you the truth
That I am after the earthly pleasure

In this nothing wrong
Nothing untruth

I am telling
Straight is straight

I do not want to do double sin
I do not want to be a liar, a bigot.
