Some thoughts on Saddam's death

In life, we must all pay our dues.
So take care that the path which you choose
Be strewn with the good,
Or dearies, you could
End like Saddam Hussein - at the noose!

But did it all go as per plan?
Is Iraq today better than
Saddam's regime?
Or is it a bad dream
In which died a broken old man?


Reuters UK 30/12/2006: Saddam Hussein was hanged for crimes against humanity at dawn on Saturday, a dramatic, violent end for a leader who ruled Iraq by fear for three decades before he was toppled by a U.S. invasion four years ago. Read about it here

    Saddam - proud and vain
    Died a death of ignomy and pain.
    He got what he gave
    From the very people he tried to enslave
    Who killed him with utter disdain.
