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.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
