His face is round just like a door knob.
He has a mop of hair that looks like a mob.
Although he is not, he acts like a snob.

From The Masjid-al-aqsa Of Sayyid Ahmed (wahabi

When the twin anklets were nipped on the leg-bars that held them,
He brotherly greeted the armourers stooping to weld them.

The self-same course; and from the decks cry ‘Hail'!

Whisper her praises who is far away.

Brings all sweet memories of the lost past back,
