The Egypt - Part Ii - Ix (Histories Concluded) - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan
Suffice the outcome, we thus conclude
The ancients lived in much harmony,
The song of Linus, the festival of lamps.
From Babylonians, the Greeks learned
Twelve months and Geometry from Egypt,
Specialized physicians, Sardinian cotton,
Egyptian linen, their wives one, -they
Practiced circumcision and lived clean.
Aristotle has read, ‘Histories', thereafter
‘Politics' is therefore treated with reason,
And Homer finds its way into it,
Much has come down to us.
Civilization has dawned in stranger bits
Having lost much, much has been gained.
The moral is the mankind's strive
A virtuous living, sans barbarity and vice.
