Magician & Aladin's Wonderful Lamp

I offer new lamp of happiness
Give me the old rusty ones
Of grief, anguish and sadness
I give new ones to one that shuns

I am the magician wandering
In the hustling streets of Baghdad
To seek magic lamp to be a King
And go on holidays to Trinidad

What I am seeking they know not
Infidelity of happiness, you ask me
What I’m offering they haven’t got
Treasure of anguish I’ll get for free

Pain and agony –everlasting treasures
Their fidelity is tested and tried
They cleanse soul in no mean measures
What you call trash, I’ave always eyed

    Wonderful write here, Mohammad. Yes in this materialistic country of ours we set a lot of folks up for envy and wishful thinking. And its too bad because we have so much to learn and appreciate from other cultures!! You might want to change the spelling in the title to Aladdin (there is no "u" in that name).

    Beautiful! I too was brought into your world for a moment, and being the wanna be traveller that I am, this was excellent. I also prefer the old to the new, always have, give me the tarnished lamp anyday over the shny new one. Old holds much truth and resonance, Love Kristin
