Poem: Liberation Square in Egypt

As Moses cast his staff down
so the masses are casting theirs

and their transformed and transformative
multi-million-strong serpent is swallowing

those vain wrigglings of the Pharaoh’s
police-state magicians now made

useless by the greater heartfelt

uncoiling masses of
God-sent Moses

all peace and success
be upon him (and them)

and each of his prophetic lights now
shining across every Pharaonic

tyrant’s face

    I love the serpentine imagery and references to Sayiddina Musa Alayhisalaam. Great stuff sidi!

    May Allah swt give the Egytians peace and justice! Ameen
