Raajay seeh mukdam kutay
Jaa-ay jagaa-inih baithay sutay
chaakar nahdaa paa-inhi ghaa-o
rat pit kutiho chat jaahu
jithai jee-aan hosee saar
nakeen vadheen laa-itbaar

English Translation

The kings are tigers, and their officials are dogs; they go out and awaken the sleeping people to harass them. The public servants inflict wounds with their nails. The dogs lick up the blood that is spilled. But there, in the court of the Lord, all beings will be judged. Those who have violated the people's trust will be disgraced; their noses will be cut off.

Translation: S. S. Khalsa
