Hafiz Knows Wassup II

From Ghazal 79:

Seek no kindness of those full of hate,
People of the mosque with the church debate.
Don’t badmouth me, don’t blacken my name;
Only God can, my story narrate.

What I’ve learned

Only two things today.

The average salary for a teacher at a government school is, or was until quite recently, 8,000 Yemeni Riyals per month. That’s about $40.

Hafiz knows what’s up:

The fortunate blessed youth, listen to the old wise soul.
Tell tales of song and wine, seek not secrets of the world,
None has found and no-one will, knowledge leaves this riddle whole.
