Abraham

Rating: 4.3
My language always is precise,
but I’m prepared to take advice
from people who can’t follow what
I’m saying. When I’m being hot,
some people cannot understand
my arguments since they’re not bland,
and even when they see I’m pensive,
they sometimes find my words offensive.
Although I try to be pellucid,
it is a nuisance that is deucèd
that I should be accused of being
obscure when I am disagreeing
with people who do not esteem
my words. It wasn’t Ibrahim
who walked with Ishmael to Moriah,
but Abraham who lit the fire
beneath young Isaac. That is clear,
though many do not want to hear
such simple facts, like those I write,
pellucid, although impolite.
The man who told God: “Here I am! ”
was very surely Abraham,
not Ibrahim, and that’s a fact,
which, like my own, I won’t retract.

Actually They were not Arab, for Example the books say about Ibrahim that his language was The Syriac and Hebrew... And for Yusuf the books say that his language was the Ancient Aramaic and so on...

This poem is talked about Abraham, Ishmael, and Isaac- and for me Abraham is Ibrahim like Isha is Jesus and Moses is Musa and Joseph is Yusuf they all were arabs

It is difficult to overcome the hatred I have of this junk. In the end nothing here matters at all.
