Stay Tuned! - Poem by Moez Ben Meftah
My door was shut and so were the windows,
I could hear in my kitchen, a big blast in Belfast,
A tempest in the West and in Palestine it blows;
Sixty minutes of BBC World news and comments.
I took my pipe to change the air in Hyde Park,
An old acquaintance greeted me 'hi, Jack! '
Then stack his eyes to the Sun's page of porno(s) ,
I called a taxi and River Thames quietly flows,
May I find in the land that muse of the moors?
In the cab Julian Marshall was voicing his views;
The British love of the quid and the Euro's* heroes.
'Slow down please, could you ride to the muse? *
The driver smiled and set the set into blues.
On the way I saw the mobs in Trafalgar square(s)
A gathering of Kurds, and Arabs of double o's;
Banners, flags, caricatures, and much ado(s) ,
'Down down with Saddam, strike him with the Cruise! '
'Go south young man! '* and that was an abuse,
The cab's guy lost temper as the quest was at loose,
If I could fly to Mir with the Russians in Soyuse,
'Go to Brighton sir, ' and let it go as it goes.
'Please gear up, ' I said 'and put off this snooze! '
In Palace Pear, most people were in pairs,
The elders in reveries and the young in snares,
And I rambled my eyes in the skies and pebbly bays,
I could see huge clouds resembling nuke mushrooms
Covering few Arabs, a lot of WASPS and the Jews,
And the deep Atlantic was knitting with the waves,
Quaky shrouds and brown coffins of all sizes.
Back to home to chewing and ejaculation rendezvous,
My abode was wide open and my wife at the doors,
'We got a call, we have to go or else it blows! '
Still to come…stay tuned to Aljazeera good news.
