How the hell we dare to celebrate the victory of Petra?!
How the hell could we break up the culture of grumpness?!
How dare we be happy?
Isn’t being happy a sin?
or *7aram* in Arabic
In fact mostly everything is 7aram Arabic
Happiness is 7aram
Sadness is 7aram
Internet is 7aram
Barbie is 7aram
tjsadhjsh is 7aram
Pick anything, add 7aram, and you would be CORRECT!
But as every other 7aram
You have to justify your claim
Like for instant
Star Academy is 7aram because
“it is meant to take the attention of our youth from other important issues”
Starbucks is 7aram because
“their profit goes to support Israeli military actions”
Women voice is 7aram because
“it may turn on another man!”
Celebrating Petra of becoming a new world wonder is 7aram because
There are people being killed in Palestine and Iraq! Bingo!
Jordanians CANNOT smile
Jordanians CANNOT sing
Jordanians CANNOT dance
We should sit in our homes
Watch Al Jazeera!
Swith from one blood scene to another
Fill our anger and hatred gauges
Curse traitor Arabs
Even our wives in the kitchen preparing dinner!
Maybe we can also pick up the phone
Call Al Jazeera
And scream as much as we can
or send a text message that in no time find its place under the screen of any TV channel
Declaring our lack of knowledge in any kind of civil behaviour
We would be *good* Arabs!
Because *good* Arabs are only those who scream
Those who stand in the middle of a crowd
With dozens of body guards around them,
Cursing and swearing with every meaningful word they know from the Arabic dictionary.
And stop only for the crowd to clap and chant!
Because we are only allowed to be happy when our leaders give a speech!
And also when a football team win a competition!
We can ignore people being killed in Palestine and Iraq then
Because football is our ring!
It is where we can shout and scream!
The only plausible act in our culture
That is 7alal! (not sinful)
Along with eating! (no pork)
