Alpamysh is sleeping in the Arpali Desert.
I will not bother him.
If he wakes up, what shall we ask him to do,
Will he sell sunflower seeds at the Eski Juva market
Like my younger brother?
Or will he pick two tons of cotton like my elder brother?
What shall we ask him to do otherwise,
Will he take lessons of faithlessness from our uncle?
Or will he learn the ways of getting an award?
Would he hang himself when he sees our aunt’s shenanigans?
So, what shall we ask him to do,
Do you think he can cope with drinking beer with us?
Or will he infringe the copyright of someone else’s book?
Do we care?
After all, it’s only our father who can take revenge on
However, how could our father wake up
If Alpamysh is asleep?
