Abdul Wahab


Keep doing as you are in Rome.


We dare not
To know all the things

Let alone few men
As we are unknown to ourselves

In that sense
We are facing strangers

At every moment
In this strange world

We behave like ourselves
And we just imitate

The stranger in us
To avoid trouble

Do as Romanians do
When you are in Rome

But what will you do
When a Romanian

Comes to your home?
Keep doing as you are in Rome.
