Here you will find the Poem Ch 01 Manner of Kings Story 12 of poet Sa di
An unjust king asked a devotee what kind of worship is best? He replied: "For thee the best is to sleep one half of the day so as not to injure the people for a while." I saw a tyrant sleeping half the day. I said: "This confusion, if sleep removes it, so much the better; But he whose sleep is better than his wakefulness Is better dead than leading such a bad life."
