Maulana

Too long I have heard your sermons, Maulana
But so far there has been no change in my fate, Maulana

The preachings of gratefulness keep to yourself
For they penetrate my heart like an arrow, Maulana

I cannot say lies, forgive my rudeness.
This is both my crime and my shortcoming, Maulana

About the truth, only you know or God knows
They say that Jimmy Carter is your master, Maulana

The land to the landlords, the machine to the warlords,
You say God has written this, as a commandment, Maulana

Why don’t millions join and fight for Palestine
Prayers alone cannot liberate from chains, Maulana!
