Mohammed (May God grant him peace)
said to eat the pomegranates
Eat them.

Eat the luscious seeds
from the pretty purple pod
lovely, love like a lady

lovely, and will we
lose our envy,
lose our hate?

A man for a woman?
A woman for a man?
Surely not. Of course not.

But let's eat them anyway.
Let's eat the luscious seeds
from the pretty purple pod.

Let's eat them.
Let's eat them.
Let's eat them.
