Ta’aburnee

Arabic

‘you bury me’

As opposed to

I should live long

Enough to

Bury you.

My dear friends

I’ve no wish to bury

Any of you.

Take it from

The Arab in me,

I wish to go first.

I insist.

 

Ergo

You have long

(and prosperous)

Lives ahead of you.

For

I am not

Ready yet,

Nor wish to be.
