Across the Pond (Kind of) - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's Swan Song

I have heard a swan will sing, just once, before it dies...
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has sung one full of lies.
He's as lame as ducks can get but his last U.N. speech
Gave this narcissist a global stage from which to screech.

On the Jew's High Holy Day; called them "uncivilized."
Quoted Persian poetry until he realized
He had lost his audience.  The U.S. didn't show.
We already knew which way the wind was gonna blow.

Middle East is all our fault.  We're Satan...  Blah, blah, blah.
Persia has been civilized forever...  Rah, rah, rah.
Just ignore the tensions over Syrians who've died;
Never mind the I.A.E.A. claiming that you've lied.

Problems in the Middle East go back 3,000 years
And Iran, for much of it's, incited neighbors' fears.
Even its own citizens are careful where they walk...
That was not a swan song - that was Mahmoud's final squawk.
