Human Trafficking By Marriage

Egypt under age marriages
buying a poor child bride
bride for sale bride for profit
thank Allah is now illegal

since 2002 illegal in Egyptian law
child married three times a month
in 2002 10,000 cases of abuse
age old customs traditions in use

child marriage now illegal
in contemporary Egyptian law
Prophet Muhammad blessed
be his name would not allow

the buying selling of a child
under disguise of marriage
search your heart now read
Al Quran guide to humanity

then ask would Muhammad
repeatedly sell this poor child
as some of you repeatedly do?
By Allah judgement is passed.

Poem of the Day

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen
(Sure no Minister ever looked wiser),
And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
