Postscript From Ghibli
Libya! Weep Libya!
Thy sly invaders smooch thy defender
Thy oppressor masks his crusader
Eye wells cried dry, mouths filled with peals of empty laughter
When ego puffs personality takes cover
When libido strays, devil's peace reigns all is in asunder
Still life goes on
Libya! Oh Libya!
The great green desert is deserted
Milking the blood of children she birthed
Ghibli lays still; still the glowering sky is shattered
Cyrene's serenity is stained and her sanity is scalded
Though her hymen remains her virginity is desecrated
And life goes on
