CAN YOU GUESS MY NAME?
Group of city states ruled by monarchs.
Portraits of monarchs adorn the streets.
Civil liberty is limited,
But utopian by Islamic standards.
Favorite for shopping and playground of the rich.
Risk a fine or jail,
If you drink or kiss in public, do drugs,
Also watch your photography and your tongue.
Keep your dancing and nudity indoors,
No skin showing or public eating during Ramadan.
Left hand is used for butt cleaning.
Do not eat, shake, or open doors with forsaken hand.
Keep your LGBTQ lifestyle in the closet.
Or you will be put in the closet,
Until you repent.
Second in charity giving per capita.
Only Sweden gives more.
Awash in oil and gas riches, that turned a desert into,
A modern metropolis in three decades
With world’s tallest building and largest man-made island.
Spared from terrorist attacks.
But threats remain.
Only one death from terrorist stabbing.
Safe tourist destination.
If you observe the restrictive laws.
