They don’t know what it means to us
Our moral wall, our menfolk’s pride
Who’ll call us purest and pious
Better would be to get crucified!
Don’t dare our faith with liberal fear
Our moral right with secular shame
For your politics we will not bare
What Sharia made us we became!
We are afraid we will lose our faith
In an estranged land where no one cares
We’ll take in our stride this unjust scaith
How can kaffirs meddle in our affairs!
We’re stuck between left and right blocs
In this love-and-hatred’s enigma
Our prison is their paradox
Who Stole Our Veil And Abaya!
