Failing in Yemen

Saudi Arabia Launches Air Strikes in Yemen

No one wants to say that Yemen's failing as a state
But the situation on the ground ain't looking great.
President has fled the country; Houthis hold the streets...
I'd say the criteria for failing's one it meets.

Saudis and Iranians engaged in proxy war;
Former leaders want to loot the country even more.
Sunni fighting Shia with al Qaeda in the mix
Yemen's problems may yet prove impossible to fix.

On the brink of civil war - the final coffin nail -
What else would you call this if it's not an epic fail?
U.S. forces left already; writing's on the wall
As another sign of Arab Spring becomes its Fall.
