All English Sonnets
O! If I say, that holiest Koran,
Is the greatest book on Earth, I may set,
Against me Hindu, Chistian, Muslman,
And Jew, denouncing me in angry fret.
The Musalman may say, how a kafir,
Can judgment on this holy wisdom pass?
Descendent of great Moses, then may offer,
Reviling words for me, call me crass?
Or Hindu may then term me as a traitor?
Or Christian call me as a Christian hater?
And fearing this reaction, I am quiet.
Yet silence changes nothing, not a mite,
For this is undeniable, forsooth,
And simple, unabashed, naked truth.
