A Ghazal on Easter

I must go out for a feast, today is Easter,
Cook the lamb, roast it, at least, it’s Easter!

Let the crab be caught out of its existence,
Let me savour its taste, it is Easter.

After cleaning up the soul, came the festival,
For thousands of years, it has been Easter.

When my sumptuous feast gets over,
Let me also feed the hungry, this is Easter.

Mused Roomy, pain goes in, celebration comes out,
Whether Passover, Diwali, Eid or Easter!
