Ramadaan is around the bend!

Ramadaan is once more around the bend
which means putting sins to an end;
The musjids will suddenly be full
while the smoker won't take his toxic pull;

All the Muslims will be on the fast
while those who are 'fast,' their sins will cast;

The hearts will be rid of its rust
and the barely used Qurans of its dust;

Women will eagerly don their cloaks
which for them, the rest of the year was a joke;

Men will gladly beards sprout
although the rest of the year they left it out;

Ramadaan comes once a year
but, for the rest of the year, we pretend it wasn't here!
