One great Sultan rules the heavens
wields the power of life and death
defies the decadence of Dubai
divine and celestial above the sheiks
Sol the bright and lawful king
photons above The United Arab Emirates

With convection winds a turban in the clouds
spinning monuments in his honor
bountiful currents that move the seas
electrons the gifts of converted energy
and bow in the palace of his southern exposure
amethyst panels collect a visible intensity
