Farewell Martyr AlBotty


A pure soul was he;
A true religious scholar,
And his tears were
Genuine not that of
A crocodile or alligator.
And he died Martyr
As he wished.

An excellent lecturer
And teacher was he,
Who taught us,
In depth, a lot,
However tough
Was, his recent
Political vision,
He is a human being
After all and might
Commit mistakes.
But this does not erase
All his good past.

Or even if he had
Different view
On life and politics.
Even if one does not
Agree with any
Of his political or social
Judgment or opinion.

This does not give any
One who disagrees,
Even if he was
A famous sheikh,
The right to dig
A place for Al Boty
In Hot or glazing
Fire or Hell.

This is not our business,
This is in God’s
Hands for He
Is the only One who
Knows about
Real Intensions;
An who is a hypocrit.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
