Ode 1045 : Saghi be Quick! I can't Wait Any Longer
For the next round, give me from that other cup of wine
which will sooth my inner self forevermore
Seeing me like this, I swear,
you’ll believe that I just can’t wait anymore
If [you think ] I deserve a grain of your mercy,
don’t make me wait any longer
Set me free, set me free- free!
For I have badly fallen into that other trap
If you close the house door on me now;
I’ll climb to roof and try to get in
Don’t leave me at the mercy of thoughts;
Thoughts are all-consuming, bloodthirsty creatures
Saghi, if you don’t bring another round of raw wine;
These hundred raw ones will continue to annoy me
Even if I already have a loan to bear, quick!
take this mantle and I need another loan!
