Ramadan is here in all its beauty,
‘No moon sighted cuz it was cloudy’
I’m glad that I don’t follow Saudi,
As I would have missed the finale of Line of Duty.
We try to give up all that religion forbids,
Give away to charity many, many quids,
Mums try extra worship through closing eyelids,
Then settle for trying to not shout at the kids.
We decorate our houses so that they look cute,
Getting kids involved is a constant persuit,
In no other month do we eat so much fruit,
And do the men become suddenly so hirsute.
We show love and kindness as much as we are able,
Netflix may temporarily be disabled,
Dates will be found on every Iftaar table,
But don’t forget to check the label!
It’s a month where our devotion is put to the test,
It’s not a competition so don’t get stressed,
Samosas are just an unnecessary pest,
Wishing you a Ramadan that is uplifting and blessed.
Ramadan Mubarak to you all.
