Lesser Tenor - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

Unless the lesser tenor, you ain’t
The wise man. Unless the king’s entourage,
Humor of wisdom contain, a lantern in hand –
Or the sycophants may lead you down
If not gallows, in deep rivers you may drown.
If love, the common, by bitter nut not swallowed,
Or pull out, people’s love too great,
Just greet from afar, neither step a door
But of good heart and judgment,
Don’t be too harsh, nor despise yourself.
