Across the Pond - Egypt: Pay Attention!

Cartoon by Robert
If you haven't paid attention lately, then you should;
As go the Egyptians also goes the Arab Spring.
I'm afraid that you won't like the news this rhyme will bring.

Military has dissolved the Parliament and now
Won't announce the President...  They'd rather kiss a sow.
Probably because the Muslim Brotherhood has won;
Who, until a year ago, were not allowed to run.

Now, although there's uproar, it's more quiet than you'd think
Mostly because younger folks believe both options stink.
What was there to choose from? Either old way or far right?
Not the kind of candidates for whom they fought the fight.

We will have to wait and see by whom that country's led
(And how many more times that Mubarak will be dead.)
Don't know how much longer that the Generals can stall.
Hope the Arab season hasn't turned from Spring to Fall.

    1. I am very grateful and so much appreciate
      All the lovely comments you've been leaving me of late.
      Maybe only someone else who writes a daily rhyme
      Realizes just how kind you've been to take the time.
