O Egypt O Misri

The blood of the people 
In the streets of Cairo
The flesh of mothers
In the lanes of Cairo
The cries of children 
In the cusp of fear
The boots of soldiers
On the sides of marchers
And the bullets from rifles
Of sons and daughters 
Of the would be victims
This spring of madness
In the land of Pharaohs
In the land of Pyramids
In the land of the Nile
This spring of death
And destruction
In the heart
Of Egypt
O Misri!
Will it

    A realist poem describing what is going on in Egypt. Life is full of twist and turn. Sometimes we are up and sometimes we are down but it is the reality of the time. A very nice poem.
