Hardalname On Mustard

Ne budala şeymişim meğer,
Senelerden beri anlamamışım
Hardalın cemiyet hayatındaki mevkiini
"Hardalsız yaşanmaz"
Bunu Abidin de söylüyordu geçenlerde
Daha büyük hakikatlere
Ermiş olanlara

Biliyorum, lazım değil ama hardal
Allah kimseyi hardaldan etmesin

What a fool I was,
I didn't understand for years
The importance of mustard in the society
'One can not live without mustard'
Abidin was also saying this recently
To people who have solved the secrets of
Deeper truths

I know, it is not really essential
But God shall not deprive anybody of mustard.
