Obeyd-e Zakani: "I can't pay for a boy to fuck...." (From Persian)

"I can't pay for a boy..."
By Obeyd-e Zakani
Translated by A.Z. Foreman

I can't afford a boy to fuck today
Or wine to wash life's nuisances away.
Without the cash to buy a good debauch,
There's nothing left for me to do but pray. 


"زر نيست..."
عبيد زكانى

زر نیست که قصد کون نازی بکنیم
یا باده که عیش دل نوازی بکنیم
چون مایه ی فسق نیست چیزی حاضر
برخیز که ناچار نمازی بکنیم
