night he would remain
For alone, your souls,
one day will also be taken.
He showed the world, the master of his

Accepted would be his proposed,
if completed Ali’s assassination.

Like a coward, attacked ibn Muljim
poisoning Ali with his sword.
In this sacred month
of forgiveness, ibn Muljim

she fell unconscious, in tears.
She spoke now, in the language of
tears, known once as red rose,
she began to wither, slowly, upon
her death, she now stood close.
