What is Piety?



The wonder in a rose
To sail so close,without touching ashore
To realize that Allah scolds
Intertwining leaves so divine
Help you design
One of these days
I will write a rhyme
This is the true meaning of Piety
Have you any sense Mr. wine
I have come upon an ancient spell,
It helps me write Poems.

Piety is the sherbet lemon which
is my pet twine.
