A pharaoh or a pariah?
Yet another revolutionary story
People Power in Egypt came to light
Through the one-eyed screen
Of the Internet 2.0 or Facebook
Heroes come and villains go
Same-O, same-O, same old story
Told in a rewritten and oft repeated
History of human conflict and misery
A president toppled in global disgrace
Decades of reign only to fall in days
The youth of his nation stood up
Against the dictator or real leader?
Time was not on his side, definitely
His time was up before dawn awoke
Democracy was the masses’ war-cry
For better or for worse, high and dry
A centuries old civilization has to die.
Peace. Love. Kindness
