It’s A Shame - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki

It’s a shame

I don’t care; do not; do not care.
Why should I England or U.K.?
It can be Britain, England or U.K.
All came by death of that empire
Ottoman ended so:

Trans-Jordan British protectorate
A Hashemite became protectorate
Of course, after Cairo Conference
Some Mandates; British Palestine
I know well my land was the prey
Jordan has Kingdom of Hashemite
Later on same kingdom called Iraq
Following the Treaty of Anglo-Iraq
Protectorate, again the Hashemites
This kingdom lost, in a coup d'état.
I know well of the war, the second
Claimant is the child of that Abram
Started skinning by killing Palestine
Oh I know, the British’s Hashemite
In Jordan a cousin; and other in Iraq
Story dragged on; USA and Reagan
Sending foxy Ramsey; a messenger
“Count on us our friend, H-Saddam”
Sending arms merciless cross border
“Bravo! Use all arms cold and warm”

So he killed from inside and outside
Death many in Tehran and Baghdad
Finally treaty to bring peace or calm
But wounded that tiger went to south
Britain and U.S. needed the crude oil
Child helped trick few friends; Mom
Attacking on Mesopotamia, Babylon
Iraqis lost their homes thanks to bomb
You locked doors to UK, did not take
Their wounded and homeless families,
Shame on you Britain-England or U.K.
