“My Hijacked Revolution” By: Amal Algahwary


My hijacked revolution,

All the murders, killings and still no solution.

Libya, Syria all Arabs united,

My Yemeni revolution got side lined,

Yemen’s fight got thwarted!

Why has it not caught the medias eye?

With every word uttered these politicians lie,

Now you will be forced to look inside this poor country,

Has enough killing happened, has enough children died?

For the world to give us the right attention…

This flyspeck president who doesn’t deserve to be mentioned,

But he is the puppet that caused this mess.

From the first day he became so presidential,

Put the nation down, took from us our education!

No jobs, no freedom!

Our mouths not used for speech, but to be engorged with Qat; that blurs our minds.

What a smart regime, a leader against his people..he schemes.

He is not a man, not a president, but he is the definition of deception.

It’s time for a change, like we stood with all the others who were oppressed.

It’s time to stand united again and eliminate what’s wrong and stand for what’s right!
