Please might we find your magistrate
Well understanding of the fact
That poetry surpasses state,
Liberty trumps Sedition Act.
It will be poets who ensure
The glory of your fine Emir
And even when they do incur
Displeasure, they're his vizier.
I pray you grant your poets space
To work the profit of their mind.
Reconsider this Ajami case,
In which all freedoms are enshrined.
