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 one earth forever,
Your glorious works give you bait,
Soon terrible death will you devour

I do say our salvation, the sons of Ad,
Does Lie in fear Lord and trust in God
