Faraar

you bow and i fill the wine chalice
you desire a mundane solace
and I cherish the easiest escape
your beloved is the nymph of Elysium
and I, too impatient for delay.you trade yourself for coins of the after world
while I drift towards the current
so who is better? you or me?
O sheikh, my friend lets join hands in the tavern
for us both search the same
your reward hereafter
mine the cup in my hand.
