The Green Coward

You call him a dictator,
But I’ve seen the British bullets
in his armoury.
I’ve seen the gas flow
To Italian pockets,
I’ve seen French business
Operating with impunity.
I’ve seen the CIA
Selling them secrets.

And I saw a glimpse
Of people taking power back.
But you didn’t want that –
So you bought them out.

After so many dead,
Nothing will change –
As the Arab Spring turns
to winter.
