The Pretty Shadow Of A Poor Tent - Poem by MOHAMMAD SKATI

To be in a poor tent is better than begging the door of an embassy,
To be in a dark tent is better than begging the door of a kingdom, To be in a gloomy tent is better than asking for a loaf of bread, To be in a cold tent is better than to kneel down for a poor meal, To be in a hot tent is better than to be in no man's land, To be in a scary tent is better is better to be in a neighbor's land, To be in a rocky tent is better than to be in the palace of humility, To be in a wet tent is better than to be in the paradise not yours, To be in a dirty tent is better than to be in the unknown world, and
To be in a lone tent is better than to be homeless in a bad fate.
