alternative translation by Robert Graves and Ali-Shah:

     What we shall be is written, and we are so.
     Heedless of God or Evil, pen, write on!
     By the first day all futures were decided

for a compelling take-down of both the Fitzgerald and Graves/Shah fabrications of Omar Khayyam's (Ghiyath al-Din Abu'l-Fath Umar ibn Ibrahim Al-Nisaburi al-Khayyami) oeuvre into stanzaic westernized form: [^]

to go (much) deeper into the Rubaiyat and its world-wide impact: [^]
«One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.» Salvador Dali
