Arabia

Unfree yet free
a land of complexity
gives off an aura,
of peace, and security

Munificence dwells
every place
A hauteur radiates
from people’s face

Heat of harrowing degree
strikes a bare desert
a nation of many
and daunting challenges

With the muezzin’s call
the realm rises to pray
such fervor for faith
unwonted today

This barren land
blessed in none
Men flock to a place
with resources but one

Something about this
region, and its inhabitants too
sand, and concrete
black, and white
brings home to you
