'The non believer '

The non believer  


So the nice man from Sandhurst with the shiny peak, went out in the mid-day sun.

I watched him climbing up the hill and walk down when his job was done.


So polite and well spoken was he, as eloquence thus dictates, to talk to the iman in the shed on the hill, who some both revere and hate.

“I simply told him the truth”, he went on,

“Reminding him of a converstion years before, about what would happen to him and this land, if I had to darken his door once more”.


“You can’t convey a threat if you have no intention of carrying it out,”

He went on.


“To this end I left with no doubt in my mind, and now vividly painted in his.

The consequencies of his epic folly.  Which I spelt out succinctly are this.

Nothing will ever grow in this place, nothing indeed will survive

Now!    And for thousands of years, and a ‘half life’

                        Your country will know what it’s like to unlive”    


The Captain also used some  other ‘taboo’ words. I was f’n terrified!


From experience I knew, that what he said, he ment

                   and amageddon was about to transpire!


Fast forward an aeon, that’s a very long time

   Thus portending an end to my prophetic little rhyme


     A young lad I saw kneling on this 'still' barren land

             I could hear him praying to Allah, as he asked...

                       "What was it, Iman failed to understand?”

Now I want a tattoo on my forehead that says, "You can't convey a threat if you have no intention of carrying it out."

I love that line. It's the new, "Bum Fights".?

Metaphysical is often not enough for some people. Some people want physical, some want something they can grab or feel, otherwise they won't feel alive, Po.

I just saw my comment and need to make another Ghaz

I am NOT one of the 'love and light brigade' as I call the pretend mean purple people eaters, who give me metaphysical indigestion.

And manage to say shit loads and nothing at all.

You I would never put in that camp... unless under cover wink wink

Bloody hell Ghaz (sorry to swear)
Do you know how deep your comment is?

I have got to stay with it a while.

Your comments sister, are so reflective of the light in your Soul.

Dear Po,
another rare write up, and definitely a powerful one....

"wake before it's late"

i hope hidayah be a gift for every heart.... if you throw away guidance then the heart is attracted towards misguidance, leaving the door of the heart n the house itself damned till eternity.

darkness of heart and soul is worse than ignorance.
