Libya’s Turn

I wonder what he could be smoking …
He may not be drugged up, just joking.
No man is that foolish,
That stubbornly mulish,
To preen as his country is choking.

Mubarak admitted defeat
Before his disgrace was complete
Ben Ali departed
When all of this started
Gaddafi’s still glued to his seat

Democracy suits many nations
And helps fight the worst deprivations
It’s Libya’s turn now
Let’s hope they can learn how
To overcome past aberrations
