by Ambrose Bierce
ALIEN
ALLEGIANCE

ALLAH

-n.

The Mahometan Supreme Being, as distinguished from the Christian, Jewish, and so forth.

 Allah's good laws I faithfully have kept,
And ever for the sins of man have wept;
And sometimes kneeling in the temple I
Have reverently crossed my hands and slept.

- Junker Barlow
