REVENGE, by            
First Line: Pillowing their cheeks all night
Last Line: And now the wine rocks me.
Alternate Author Name(s): Abu Marwun `abd Ad-malik Ibn Abi Al-`ala' Zuhr; Ibn Zuhr
Subject(s): Revenge


Pillowing their cheeks all night
On their hands, now suddenly
The glow of dawning light
Surprises them, and me.

Ceaselessly their cups I filled,
Sucking their superfluous wine
Until my poor head reeled,
And theirs no less than mine.

So the liquor in its might
Takes revenge remorselessly:
I rocked the flask all night,
And now the wine rocks me.
