Omar Khayyam - The Rubaiyat - The Sorry trade
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
What! Out of senseless nothing to provoke
A conscious something to resent the yoke
Of unpermitted pleasure, under pain
Of everlasting penalties, if broke!
What! From his helpless creature be repaid
Pure gold for what he lent him dross allayed
Sue for a debt he never did contract
And cannot answer – oh the sorry trade!
