Are we really gonna talk about Modesty?

If they tell you that your clothes are not modest enough,

If they tell you to cover because the way that you are covered tempts others,

because the way you dress,

does not impress,

your Muslim mothers,

and your Muslim brothers,

ask them why,

Why they tell you to cover

before they tell their own eyes to cover?

And ask them why,

they tell you to cover,

before they tell their own mouths to cover?

And pray for their hearts to recover,

from the hypocrisy

that they will soon discover.

Because they blew their cover,

while they were so busy,

telling you,

to cover.
