Premium Member I like Muslims
I like Muslims,
Particularly Yemenis
And Pakistanis (in Yemen)—
With whom, as a university don,
I happened to live for six years.

A Yemeni voice gruff.
So even a greeting would   probably
Sound rude to you.

with sterling silver scimitars in

and boots and belts of finest faun-skin
and helmets topped...
