The earth is standing 
Upon its tail
I saw the chief Imam
Dash into the stall of the pork seller
Shouting "Hallelujah!"

The earth is tilting
Upon its axis...

    This is powerful despite it's brevity. I am impressed with your writing and I have added you to my favorite poets list. Send me a soup mail if you have a chance, I would like to know more of your story. No one writes this well without having a story.

    I like this. Tell me if I have it right. Does it mean the Imam does not see what should be evident to him? Shouts hallelujah because of something irrational. Forgive me if I'm wrong.
