IRAQ 2020

DAY 41 & 42 COVID – 19 SA LOCKDOWN

Iraq

Saddam! Oh! you, you have saddened me

They say you had WMD’s but none did I see,

Oil for food was the programme for peace

Little did it make my kids ‘drink life to the lees.’

You, Saddam came as a hero to the States

But little did you see were developed for hates

When you fought with Iran

The states ran

Yes! They ran to you Saddam! Oh Saddam!

Then came Operation Desert Storm over Kuwait

Little could the States wait for the Islamic world was late

And Iraq tasted a gruesome fate

It appeared that Iraq died testate

For the States were ready with a will

And that’s how the States economy got its fill!

Then came Bush & Blair on Sharon’s chessboard with so much of flair

Blamed Saddam for having WMD’s in all of media’s glare 

Then I was aghast

For in Bush’s blast 

‘We will go it alone’ sounded the airwaves 

Came no one to save!

Iraq! Oh you were dealt another operation within State law

Shock & Awe!

Iraq! Blasted to smithereens with B52’s

For the States & it Poodles hated to lose!

Oh! Saddam! Oh you!

Oh! Bush! Oh damn you too!

Iraq 

Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea!

Little did Saddam see what was behind the Bush for he was told: “Don’t see”

Now I bleed

And there is no lead to peace

Only the chase for an oil piece

It’s an all American pie

Covered in one big lie 

WMD!

Iraq – you will prevail

As Allah avails

“With every hardship there comes ease, surely with every hardship there comes ease.”   

Then Saddam you were hanged and the shahaadah you did recite as the noose tightened 

The world seemed be less frightened

Oh Saddam! The gallows

So much to for swallows 

Ney! You did not wallow

For the others wanted to follow

You hanged with Shahadaah on your lips

Oh! That made the guards flip

For the gallows’ fellows did trip

As Saddam’s lips tightened in Shahadaah’s grip

Sharon died alone, buried alone left a clone to make the world cry

Oh! All his antics, lies, deceit, oppression in Gaza, Ramallah and West Bank made them fry!

Great People don’t die

They soar to tell Allah the Israeli lie

Alas! Osama was still on the run

Oh! So much of WAR FUN

Osama on Obama’s wild west draw

Lost the last straw

With a burial at sea

For no one to see

Oh! The bogey man is what USA needs

No bogey man no military feeds

Oh ! What Greed!

With USA & UK coffers running on empty and ‘trillioned’ dry on desert sand

Surely, ‘some revelation is at hand’

No! Not ‘Spiritus Mundi slouching to Bethlehem to be born’

Nay, it’s the dollar marching on the white house lawns with all its pawns

In the end, every president elect

Is a select

To be the prefect

Of a sect

To usher an Arab Spring

With no wing

Because whose song must they sing

When it’s not the master’s voice

For it leaves the puppets on chains with no voice

Rise up Iraq for you house the footsteps of Prophets

They were not on sale for any profit!

Oh Iraq rise up, hoist the black flag

The ummah cannot afford to sag!

2020! Iraq is in tatters

America sheds it’s feathers  

All is not over Iraq shall rise again

And USA and allies will never be main

Iraq!

Soliders in Iraq
