life as a lie

by Gillette aka Hassan[uddin] Khaja

do they know
that i'm the most reviled of creatures
that my evil heart pumps riyaa
that my brain fears prying eyes
that i fear will tear off my beard
and expose my tattooed

do they know
why i sport a hairy spectacled niqab
that i use to hide behind
except from the most inquisitive
will they find out that my eyes are filled with
bewilderment, confusion

do they know
that last night i slept
with a beautiful woman
Al-Hayaat Ad-Dunyaa
that i gave into my confusion
and cravings
for silk sheets and skin?

do they know
that i call to righteousness
but lack it
i and those who follow me?

do they know
that i'm the donkey
who carries books
and people to misguidance
to knowledge without speech
or action?

do they know
that they'll never know
until i am the fuel
for a kaafir's fire?

of and relating to...
