Two thousand three
muslims on bended knees
saying salat five times a day
muessins calling them to prayer
Planes over Baghdad
land between the two rivers
Mesopatamia, Ur, Sumer, Assyria...Babylon
land of Ibrahim(Abraham) Patriarch of three religions
Oh Abraham, why do your children kill each other?
Iraq, where the beast also hails from
Ziggurats in the dessert
as ancient as the Pharaohs Tombs
history all over the place!
The bombs are falling
The Eagle flys over the ancient landscape
zeros in and releases
there goes Algeezera
there goes Sadaam
There go the lights.
