Fellow Poets, Help This Palestinian Poet Sentenced To Death By Saudi Arabia For Renouncing Islam - Poem by Saiom Shriver

In Saudi Arabia one
cannot follow his heart
One is not able his
own truth to believe.
Because he stands in freedom
Saudi sheiks seek
of his head,
Ashraf Fayadh's
body to relieve.

Topic(s) of this poem: politics


Poet's Notes about The Poem

It is these Saudi sheiks who are bombing the poor of Yemen,

who are killing millions of mammals during the pilgrimage to Mecca,

who are denying women their rights, whose secret police torture dissidents,

who decapitate gay men, who stone women alleged to have been adulterous,

who ban every Christian church, Buddhist temple, Hindu mandir, Jewish synagogue,



Is Saudi oil more important than standing up for human rights?

The Quran speaks many times of Allah as All Merciful.

God who answers to all names including Allah, save Fayadh's life and bring spiritual
democracy to Saudi Arabia.
