Breaking Of A Dream - Poem by Shahabuddin Nagari
Saddam Hussein came out of VVIP Lounge stood at the tarmac
On the red carpet. As Air Force One stopped at the tarmac
The TV camera started to roll and innumerable flash bulbs
Flashed creating a beautiful fireworks. Mercury glass covered Airport is clad with giant portraits of smiling Saddam and Bush.
America flags caress the flags of Iraq and colourful balloons
While flying side by side. One division Republican Guards
Are red alert to give guard of honour to president Bush
He will be handed over with a huge bouquet of Basra roses
When Bush will stretch his hands after alighting from plane
Saddam Will not stretch his hands but will embrace Bush with
Warmest love. Flower petals will be strewn from helicopters
Shouts of ‘Long live Bush’ and ‘Long live Saddam’ will be
Heard all over Saddam Hussein Airport. Dry arid deserts of Iraq
Will be washed away with the rains of warm hospitality
Tigris and Euphrates rivers will be overflowed both sides
Eminent reviewers and reporters will explore the long-standing Relations of Iraq and USA at the CNN in its live coverage.
Gifts of Saddam carried from Washington will be delivered
At the presidential palace of Saddam by Colin Powell himself.
The door of Air Force One is opening up like a giant whale
In a few seconds president will come out of the plane
With his three million entourage. . . . . I became wide awake.
And lay down on my bed with the pain of shattered vision.
The TV screen shows the dead bodies of Iraqi soldiers
Are dragging down by Coalition Forces.
