Pre-Islamic Poetry 3

ألم أك جاركم ويكون بيني     وبينكم المودة والإخاء

Was I not your neighbour whilst there was between me and you love and brotherliness?

Meaning: [The poet,] Al-Hutay’ah, reprimands the Al-Zibriqan family with this verse and says to them: I was an adherent of yours living under your protection and there was familiarity and brotherhood between me and you, then I turned away from you towards others; there must be a reason on your part for this as you are unfit for neighbourly association and love.
