Abdul Hameed Naji, Baghdad, 1974

 

The Sheeple

 

Falsehood's become truth ... and chaos has spread
Liars are upheld ... and good mouths are well weld

 

Wisdom deserted all ... but a sleepless few
Trance became the norm ... and to reality blindness wed

 

No free thinking was left ... so long as they were fed
Sleep sheep they became ... buried in a borrowed bed

 

Wake up and uphold what Gods always said:
Dont step over others ... to reach a higher end
Love each other so ... to the Truth youd be led

 

Ali Adams, Abu Dhabi, 2006
