This is a city full of abundance and drinks.
Every drunk has a glass in his hand.
Some offer more drink;
Others offer health, happiness.
This is a river of milk; The other is honey.
There is only one Sultan in every town;
This one is full of Sultans.
There is only one moon in the sky;
This sky is full of Moons and Saturns.
Go. Go tell the doctors,
“You don’t have any business there,
Because nobody gets ill there.
There is no sickness there.”
This town has no judge,
No deputies, no rulers, no accounting.
Conflicts, animosities and fights
Can’t walk on top of the sea.
(Diwan-ı Shams Meter1 / 65, 823-825)
