Circumcision, An English Ghazal - Poem by Ravi Kopra

Opposition erupts as Iceland eyes banning most circumcisions

REYKJAVIK, Iceland (AP)— Icelandic lawmakers are considering a law that would ban the circumcision of boys for non-medical reasons, making it the first European country to do so. Some religious leaders in Iceland and across Europe have called the bill an attack on religious freedom.

***

How come the religious freedom for some could be circumcision?
How come the hooded ones are no good but only after circumcision?

If their spouses ever tried the hooded ones
I bet, for ever they will forget circumcision

They have gone bonkers, aren't they?
How come their God forbids circumcision?

A phallus is a phallus for peeing and conception
How come it is best or better after circumcision

Hindus worship phalluses in Shiva's temples
They give damn to circumcision or no circumcision

Why do Allah's men say circumcision is religious freedom?
Is it like having four women as wives is a religious freedom?

The barbaric bedouin in the arabian deserts had no soap and water
For them to keep their phalluses clean, they performed circumcision

Their Allah is merciful, they have trillion tons of gasoline
and still no water. That's why they still want circumcision

'Ravi' teased his girl friend he was going to undergo the circumcision
You better not, she said, I will divorce you right after the circumcision

I like your hooded one, she further said with pleasure. You will have to
Find a burka clad woman as a girlfriend if you ever undergo circumcision.
