QUIET NIGHT IN THE CASBAH

QUIET NIGHT IN THE CASBAH

This casbah is so quiet,

Not enough people for a riot…

silence is loud

Without a crowd,

Maybe I can get back on my diet!

No entrancing women tonight,

No dervishes whirling in sight…

The occasional clink

Of a merchant I think,

counting his  revenues right.

Another man will come along,

Blessed to hear morning songs…

Whilst I will sleep

In my bed so deep,

I’ll need a ladder at dawn!

–Jonathan Caswell
