Poem for the SuperMax Prison
and when Suleyman saw me, he offered up a prayer for protection against me, and exhorted me to embrace the faith, and to submit to his authority;
but I refused;
upon which he called for this bottle, and confined me in it, and closed
it upon me with the leaden stopper, which he stamped with the Most Great
remained a hundred years; and I said in my heart, Whosoever shall liberate
me, I shall enrich him for ever:
and I entered
upon another hundred years; and I said, Whosoever shall liberate me, I
will open to him the treasures of the earth;
hundred years more passed over me, and I said, Whosoever shall liberate
me, I will perform for him three wants:
I then fell into a violent rage, and said within myself, Whosoever shall liberate me now, I will kill him; and only suffer him to choose in what manner he will die.
And lo, now thou hast liberated me, and I have given thee thy choice of the manner in which thou wilt die.
