Tradition - Poem by Naveed Akram

Already an ancient tradition,
Wisdom travels further than saliva;
To digest is to consume and understand
Meeting the sky and being among clouds.
The language is simple, relaxed and expert,
The wisdom is among the heads of the state,
Beheading is against us, when there is comprehension.
Stick in hand, a woodcutter has woven a plot,
The axes have produced a fine example of objects.
