Death Of A Believer

Rating: 2.2
Yet at the last, ere our spearmen had found him,
Yet at the last, ere a sword-thrust could save,
Yet at the last, with his masters around him,
He spoke of the Faith as a master to slave.
Yet at the last, though the Kafirs had maimed him,
Broken by bondage and wrecked by the reiver,
Yet at the last, tho' the darkness had claimed him,
He called on Allah, and died a Believer!
Rudyard Kipling

It is much less disconcerting to read a short poem by Kipling, a fine elegy. When this Muslim died ', He called on Allah, and died a Believer! '.
