''Who brought me to this cage?'
Roars the dictator with rage
Then says in a firm voice
'I'm free and have my choice'

So I do not obey this court
Which judicial norms distort
{pointing to Moammad Amin}
'I hold this Kurd as my subject
And most vehemently object
His right to adjudicate'

'For Kurds are but naive and dunce
What do they know
About jurisprudence?'

'I crushed them,curbed their insurgence
subjugating them at once
Now this upstart Kurd has audacity
To ask me my identity?'

'Who gave him such authority
Asubject asking the king his name
Amatter of utmost shame!'

'Deeming this insubordination
As an act of treason
I can inflict on him punishment most dreaded
By getting him publicly beheaded'

'And how am I to be brought
Under the purview of this Kurdish Court ?
Where both the plaintiff and judge are Kurdish lot'

'In no way this is a fair trial
But mockery of justice
And its clear denial'

' Where is my skud,whereis my skud ?
I wanna make these Kurds
swim in their blood
They are shrewd Shyloks
Rude rand epulsive folks!'

'They want from me pound of flesh
Alas! ignorant armies by night clash
Where art Thou o great Matthew Arnold?
To Lucifer my soul I have sold'

'Alas! I'm Marlowe's 'faustus' in exile
To Mephistophilis I have mortgaged my smile
perennial death awaits me on gallows
As the charges are read by these fellows'

'Oh no,never should I repent
My valour is not yet spent
I can still kill Bush in single combat
And in fencing Blair I can beat'

As a sovereign ruler of a state
It's unbecoming of me to regret
I am not free to experience guilt
But instead should keep my hand on sword-hilt'

'Why this selfish world
Rewards me not for my bravery?

'Didn't I fight a lone battle against the allies
Punching them hard in their bellies
Shall no one bestow upon me accolades
For my glorious victorious acts?'
Or confer upon me the knighthood
For Gulf War's strategy shrewd?'

'Instead of turning vindictive
Why my foes do not follow Christ
Who not on revenge
But on mercy emphasized

Didn't Jesus forgive his assasins?
Saying: Lord,forgive them
For they know not what they do
But these enemies of mine
Relish and enjoy my waterloo!'

'To you all I earnestly urge
Appoint a Christian Priest as a judge
To whom I can confess my sins
And for mercy plead
The priest carrying The Holy Bible in hand
Can in fact my enigma understand'

'These Kurds build case against me brick by brick
Hearing it I feel sick
We can't absolve the world of sins
By hanging the assasins'
Mercy will herald the dawn of love
By pleasing the God Up Above'
