The curious belief which drives
A man to **** so many for
The reward in martyrdom of
Seventy two black eyed virgins
Has an ironic twist in the
Disappointment that a belief
So carefully nurtured, if
Houri are hur, and the error
In translation is a paradise
Of white raisins instead.
A suicide bomber will be disappointed in the afterlife if  houri is just hur, as the translation of the Koran differs in two words where β€œhouri” means ****** and β€œhur” means white raisin
