The sea of mercy refers to the sufi master…

The sea of mercy refers to the sufi master;
this friend is the one who saves you from disaster!

You can sink in base desire- what is called the nafs;
or you can swim to the rhythm played by the daf!

The murshid is most kind and believes in your pain;
he is the one whose loving regard is most sane!

Why fault the Muslim who is surrendered to god-
the ignorant opportunist is just a clod!

Wake up, america, to the sufi path of love;
it is the rabid demagogue who should get the shove!

Do we not all have the right to love together-
or is it only the Christian who knows better?

Darvish drums the fundamentalist on the ass;
the Bible thumpers have no beat- they are so crass!
