[Sunlight] "You're all mixed up"



You're all mixed up.
For the sake of position,
you come with reverence before the blind
and wait in the hall;
but in the presence of one who can see,
you behave with disrespect.
No wonder you've become fuel for the fire of desire.

To be-`aksi pish-e kurân bahr-e jâh
bâ hozur âyi neshini pâyegâh
Pish-e binâyân koni tark-e adab
nâr-e shahvat-râ az ân gashti hatab

-- Mathnawi II: 3221-3222
