Dear All:

I have a traditional poem with one line that has two short verses then one
long centered verse, the package measures the longest one and makes the
short verses as long as it.

Is there a way to prevent such work so all the poetry will be justified with
kashida and ignores the one centered verse.

بالله يا سيد الغزلان & أملا ودير \\
 على رياحين البستان & جنب الغدير \\
 واترك تحاميل الهجران & يا فنان يا منصان \\
 ليش هجرتني — ما رحمتني \\
 يا بدر لا تهجرني & من وصلك لا تحرمني \\
 واترك ما مضى — واملأ الكأس — للجلاس
