The new Libyan

a new Libyan is born today
Allahu Akbar, hip hip hurray
the new ruler arrives make way
clean the streets, hang the banners
freedom is yours
to mindlessly celebrate

wash the blood, wipe the tears
smile, put away your fears
salute, fire bullets in the air
weep with joy – or despair
teach the world how to liberate
by seeking vengeance –
by spewing hate
