In the place of assembly drunkenness is vile,
Neither lute nor flute nor a heart are ready to my hand,
O drunkards ! the wine seekers abandon everything
Save the reckoner of the place who is always drunk.


P 214

In the age's assembly winebibbing clean banned is;
Nor hautboy nor ghittern nor wanton in hand is:
Save the Mohtesib's' self, who is al ways in liquor,
No toper but's given up wine in the land is.

Th 675

Wine drinking 's frowned on in society,
Nor harp, nor flute, nor love at hand may be,
And revellers all have ceased wine worship, save
The Muhtasib who 's drunk continually!
