Baghdad desecrated

When Baghdad’s virginity was desecrated and the invaders played havoc in the most treasured people’s memories, my pen shed tears…

A drop of curtsey to the cradle of civilisation


Cradle of Civilisation Lost


If we abandon ourselves to the torment of infamy,

Depredation, vandalism and perjury,

Emblems of death with relics of mortality

Will flirt every home…what a hapless tragedy!



If no one resists the torrent and adds a dash of humanity,

Never will mother land be a haven of safety.

A nest it will be for those begotten in cruelty,

Conceived in shame and atrocity.


Written the day Baghdad was besieged

  1. Indeed Saladin, what happened in Irak is not much different from the war crimes in Japan. May be the number of casualties in Irak exceeded those of Japan. But the atrocity is the same.
    Carry on Saladin.
