Oh Dear Syria

An Apology

Oh Dear Syria, the following words I offer
In a form of a poem written solely for you
Though you deserve more for your sufferings
For what the tyrant Bashar is putting you through

You’re another story in a continuing nightmare
Innocent victims of another’s power and greed
Your forgotten history written in pure crimson
Your present a future tale for others to read

The apple really didn’t fall far from the tree
A craven son who followed his father’s malefic way
Like the massacre in February of nineteen-eighty-two

Oh Dear Syria, you are, once more, a dictator’s prey

You were hoping the world would react
To show their innate sense of “compassion”
By putting a stop to yet another demon’s war
But all you received were words without action

the “UN” declared its futile “orders” As if it has never dealt with a despot before And worldwide “leaders” meeting for a solution The result: flapping lips and nothing more You have the likes of Nasrallah and Ali Khamenei Hypocrites who pontificate about justice and what’s right A disgrace who now have a willing hand in your carnage Devoid of any humanity and to humanity a “blight” Had your oil been of value Oh Dear Syria The world would’ve intervened a long time ago But you’re now paying severely with your blood For your murderous oppressor to overthrow I can’t envision living your repressive lives Under a dome of an ongoing smothering yoke For survival and autonomy. you persistently strive Free from a man who’s just another odious joke Oh Dear Syria. Instead. your men are valiant warriors And your women incredibly brave and strong Your children fighting armed with courage And your elderly an inspiration for a song Hear me world. we should all bow our heads down in shame To witness Dear Syria go through all this again and again .

Allâh ‫ س ْبحا َن ُه َوتعالى‬is there for you HE will not give you a burden you can’t endure Your current strife a testament to your strength For a happier future: one that’s safe and secure I pray you get to follow in the trail of “The Spring” And show the world what your resilience has done Diminishing your shackles with your own hands And on your own.
