(Zarb-e-Kaleem-177) Aik Behri Qazzaq Aur Sikander

Aik Behri Qazzaq Aur Sikandar
A Pirate And Alexander

Sikandar
Alexander

Sila Tera Teri Zanjeer Ye Shamsheer Hai Meri
Ke Teri Rahzani Se Tang Hai Darya Ki Pehnayi!

Is your retribution shackles or cold steel?
Your violence on high seas all sailors feel!

Qazzaq
Pirate

Sikandar! Haif, Tu Iss Ko Jawan Mardi Samajhta Hai
Gawara Iss Tarah Karte Hain Hum Chashmon Ki Ruswayi?

Alas! Alexander, you deem it void of blame,
Do men of same craft bear each other shame?

Tera Paisha Hai Saffaki, Mera Paisha Hai Saffaki
Ke Hum Qazzaq Hain Dono, Tu Maidani, Main Daryai!

Your craft is blood‐shed and my craft the same,
We are both bandits, in diverse fields play the game!
