In a sacred city

The guest leader of a brotherly country
Who has always been ignored
by the previous leadership
Proudly approaches
The artificially decorated tomb
of a late president
of the host nation
In a sacred city
Before he offers a prayer
Verses from the holy book
Come out of his mouth
And drift in the mausoleum
The birds perching on the willow tree
Near the tomb
learn the verses by heart
‘Arrogance and tyranny is a greater sin’
Is heard in the air
now and then
