"An Eye For An Eye, And A Tooth For A Tooth ".............................................................................

Saddam Hussein likes to play the fool
turning his trial into a farce
lawyers dismissed and judges changed
it could only happen in Iraq
a pantomine if it wasn't so serious
we should remember this man is a beast
responsible for millions of deaths
a mass murderer of heinous design
he and his henchmen, perpetrators of genocide
innocent Kurds gassed by the thousands
oppression and violence the order of the day
aided and abetted by his cruel sons
instigator of wars, and initiator of invasions
peaceful countries felt his evil wrath
democracy destroyed, replaced by tyranny
freedom of speech suppressed by force
scud missiles fired on neighbouring Israel
he was quite prepared to start Armageddon
two desert storms later
we have foiled his plans
and brought justice and equity
to that God forsaken land
our soldiers showed valour
and gave the greatest sacrifice
the enemy were vanquished on their own soil
the deterrent to terrorism and extremism
so we can sleep with peace and safety at night
knowing our implacable foes are on the run
so let us pray, that justice prevails
and Saddam and his wicked cohorts
receive their just desserts
from the hand of the Almighty

They should put him in a glass cage as they did Hitler's regime at the Nuremburg Trials, where they could only be heard if asked a direct question. Definitely, low class, no class...and crass.

Well said in your work.

I speak of Saddam in my recording THE BIKER CHRONICLES making reference to all who were killed in the Persian Gulf in '91 from weapons, torture, and the BLACK CLOUD from the oil field bombings. A Hitlerish nightmare that needs to be bludgeoned into bone powder, Peter. Thanks for the thoughts.

It's a big mess. America gave him arms in his war against Iran.
Now Iran is very scary.
It's the 30's all over again.
Very thought provoking, as always peter...

Amen!!! Peter you are 100% correct with this write and don't forget he also killed thousands of children in an attempt at genocide, it is fact not fiction. If only people would understand this man is pure evil!Thanks for this fantastic truthful write!

Why he's being tried NOW after all of this time makes one wonder...a powerful, thought provoking write.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I would have to agree with Carolyn, Peter - his crimes were committed before the last Gulf War - when we let him go - and we used to support him with arms and technology before that. Why was justice so long in coming? World Politics makes very strange bedfellows, indeed.
Reviewed by C. McGovern-Bowen 2/15/2006
Iraq is a tragedy of monumental proportions, Peter. Your well-penned piece makes one wonder WHY the United States put the likes of Hussain in power in the first place, and then went on supporting him long after his cruel excesses were clear to everyone... But then, the US has utilized this misguided tactic of puppet politics elsewhere, and many times over-- the Chilean people are STILL seeking justice for all of Pinochet's brutal transgressions...
Peace and Blessings, Poet,

Hear, hear!! That guy needs to have a muzzle put on his big, oversized mouth and be thrown in jail to ROT!! He WILL lose out in the end!

He thinks he's clever but in the end he will be judged both here and the here after.
