THE LOVE SONG OF R. TAYYIP ERDOGHAN, BY SIR RUN RUN SHAW (WITH APOLOGIES TO T.S. ELIOT)

Let us go then, you and I, to the Syrian border

Where cannibals skulk beneath a sullen sky,

Like a mass of vermin vitalized by promise of Paradise

Let us go, through a multitude of psychopaths

Whose most urgent need is a hot, soapy bath.

There are border crossings which are a tedious argument

Of my most malicious intent, which

Leads me to an overwhelming conviction.

Oh, don’t ask why is it so,

Let me go to buy some petro.

 

On the Turkish border, the terrorists come and go

Hauling Syrian crude to a Turkish Amoco.

 

The yellow gas that rubs its way into a Syrian lung,

The yellow mist that erodes the sacs inside the Syrian lung,

Snuck its way into nostrils as their lungs were heaving

Acting like an ether which pulled their necks like chains

Accepted by the lying press as caused by Assad’s force

It slipped by everyone’s attention and took a ghastly course

But, since it was a hot September night

The Western Press became the ass upon the liar’s horse.

 

And is it worth it all?

Is it worthwhile to kill Assad’s Alawites,

His Christians, Druze and Sunni heretics?

After the bombings, beheadings and immolations,

The suicide attacks and homosexual defenestrations?

This, and I wish for even more.

I just don’t know how to put it;

It’s as if a puff of hashish threw my imaginings on the oda’s floor

Is it really worth the while

If some stupid dame threw a dagger at my neck

And leaping out the window should say

“That’s not where it was supposed to land,

That’s not it at all.”

 

I grow bold….I grow bold….

I shall wear my turban wrapped in gold.

 

I have seen the cannibals driving Toyotas on the sands

Parting the blondish particles all blown back

When the napalm wafts over villages leaving a limey track.

I have left my stink in the tunnels ‘neath Istanbul

With Syrian catamites wrapped in silk both red and brown

Till the U.N. Criminal Court awakens me, and I drown.

 

(December 18, 2015, Florence, Italy, by Sir Run Run Shaw, XVIII, Poet Laureate of the Far East and Polynesia,  with deep apologies to T.S. Eliot’s “Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”)

South Front - USA Builds Airbase in the Kurdish Region in Syria
South Front – USA Builds Airbase in the Kurdish Region in Syria The United States is building its first airbase in Syria. It is supposed to be located in the northern Kurdish region. The Americans apparently do not want to continue to leave the military operations in the region to the NATO partner Turkey http://southfront.org/usa-to-build-an-airbase-in-the-kurdish-region-in-syria/ The US wants to build an airbase at an abandoned airport in the Syrian Kurdish region Hasakah. The site is to be massively expanded and modernized for this purpose. So far a runway has been built with a length of 2.5 kilometers, i24 News reported.… Read more »

The airbase should be captured before its operational, and, if not, taken out. If it goes live it will likely be defended by foreign troops so the possibility of a conflict increases. The entire project should be protested at the UN and any armed force in Syria without the permission of the sovereign government should be added to the list of terrorists.

I keep trying the reply button with no success so far.On the prior post i see that someone (a person going by DAVID-LEVEL 8-)was able to post a reply.Only one i have seen so far.So someone got it to work.

That is as important-almost as important as ZIAD’s post as the replies as they lead to dialogue and often other links to more interesting info.Without it the site loses a lot of the personal feeling of communication among all.Hopefully it can be resolved.

When one clicks on the current REPLY you are taken to the entire current page as if you are just going on-or hitting F5-RELOAD–so it seems that is where the problem is.IE -u click REPLY and it reloads the site.The link i sent you above may have have the correct info that u may have to insert
in place of what is there.
ALSO it is a common problem.Have you recently upgraded your WP version? Some times that can be a problem.
I also use another site-hope this helps

Hello Mr. Ziad, Mr. Ziad you are not only a great sorcerer of words but as the very key keeper of the truth about the Syrian War. .A thorough knowledge of Mr. Ziad is compulsory for anyone interested in contemporary truth of the Syrian War. Whether he is liked or disliked is of no importance, but Mr. Ziad must be read. A poet must take as his material his own language as it is actually spoken around him. Mr. Ziad has been surrounded by war for the last five years. As a result, Mr. Ziad’s poetry has all the advantages… Read more »

Just one other thought.It seems that the Reply Button went bad about the same time people started to post live videos(not just the links). Is that a coincidence or part of the problem?

As a survivor of Literary Modernism classes, I much enjoyed this playful, skillful, and meaniful satire of T.S. Eliot. Well done Ziad.
