JH Sayyar's Sonnets

359
I was Shad, rich and proud,
All is vanity, and vanity I say,
But in the end I own a shroud,
All given but soon taken away,
Those who unjustly country rule,
I say surely they are sons of Ad,
Invite on earth pretty gallows tool,
Nothing here but the name of God
You with your works earth decorate,
Listen to me, none on earth forever,
Your glorious works give you bait,
Soon terrible death will you devour

I say your salvation lies, the sons of Ad,
Just in Fear of Lord and the trust in God
