DAY 41 & 42 COVID – 19 SA LOCKDOWN
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!
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
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
