Caliph Guard: [closing lines] Is this man to be pardoned, O Caliph?
Omar: Pardon him, All Highest. His crime was a service. Let him go free.
Poet: No, don't ask that. Under the circumstances it would embarrass the All Highest to pardon his father-in-law. O, Prince of Justice, let me help you to compose this most difficult of verdicts against a man who in his life never once did right and who never once wronged anyone. Condemn the scoundrel to some dreadful oasis at least a week's camel journey away. Force him to take with him the widow of the soon-to-be late Wazir...
[turning to Lalume, the Wazir's wife, and speaking under his breath]
Poet: and all the property she can get her hands on before the accounts are audited.
[turning back to the Caliph, in full voice]
Poet: Condemn him to lighten her sorrow and to toil ceaselessly to remove all grief from her heart.
Lalume: You have just condemned yourself for life, My Lord.
Poet: And finally, O Prince of True Believers, take from me my greatest treasure, my daughter, Marsinah. Take her away forever by marrying her to the end of her days.
Caliph: Such is the Caliph's pleasure. And so he orders.
