I have impaled you. Come, tell the truth, I know what is true: do not seek evasions.
من ز هر کس آن طمع دارم که او
صاحب آن باشد اندر طبع و خو
I expect from every person (only) that of which by nature and disposition he is the owner.

کاو بود حق یا خود از حق آیتی‏

من ز شیطان این نجویم کاوست غیر
که مرا بیدار گرداند به خیر
