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
