Between Abu Jahl, a Fool and the Arab Mob: A Boring Story

Between Abu Jahl, a Fool and the Arab Mob: A Boring Story

Abu Jahl must have shrunk in his space­-less grave

Lamenting the bad timing of his ludicrous life

Wishing in between knocks of Munkar and Nakir

To have being present in this heinous era

Where his monstrous antagonism of the Man would have

Elicited disproportionate bombs for words.


He would have balked at the crossing thought

Of the superior competence of the imbecilic Egyptian

And his acclaimed achievement and his own forgotten failure

Or how else do you explain his fruitless attacks

On the physical presence of the Man which was only rebuked

And Mr Fool got half the world calling for his empty head?

A wannabe con artist encouraged by a psycho cleric

Brandishing few notes of Mr Franklin and nothing else

Assembled few frustrated wannabe movie stars

And together in a dirty room made a crappy picture

For a computer to manipulate with little changes

That would eventually lighten up the slow summer:

A few dozen saw it and readily rightly dismissed it

The lack of brain and needed talent put them off.


The story should have uninterestingly ended there

But for a zealot who sent it through the air

And another thoughtlessly aired it without care:

And so the undisputed imbecile became a celebrated genius.

The buttoned idiots who knew little of programming

Left their mosques and burned down their country

Killed their good friend and angered everyone else

Nakedly danced to the market to display their dirty yansh

Just like they did when a beat up drawer

Scrawled some foolish drawing of the Man

And a confused writer in between doses of Strongbow

Conceived confusing work that would get him vicious fame.


When will the robotic mob realize

That this project couldn’t have been completed

Without their willing helpful hands and rioting legs

And it wouldn’t have inspiringly fructify

In the absence of their gargantuan idiocy?

  1. I dont quite know who you are talking about, but I see the recent protest against the film on Muhammed imbedded.In my opinion, you have highlighted the whole scenery as been fruitless and naive-uninteresting if you like.Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks for reading, @sambrightomo. The poem speaks about the recent protest against an anti Islam movie made by an Egyptian con artist.

  2. Some dark and vivid truths are present there…

    Though I know that this poem would only be better understood by those who are current with what’s going on in the news with regards to the movie that’s making mockery of Islam.

    It amazing how Arab Muslims are easily offended…Christianity suffers worse cases of blasphemy.

    Nice piece it questions the sanity of the offender and the offended.

    1. @afronuts: Thanks for reading. Tolerance is all we need.

  3. You talk well.
    Nice one.

  4. Very nice poem. Interesting imagery and choice of words. The world has indeed become a global village; freedom of speech has new implications and consequences.

  5. So true, Layrite. Its high time Muslims the world over keep their temper in check and stop giving attention-craving numskulls like Bacille what they want.

  6. Really nicely-woven tale…you have an interesting way of reporting news…hehe…
    This was really worth reading…. @layrite

    1. @Kaycee: Thanks

      @Queennobo: What can I say? You flatter me. E seun pupo.

      @Chemokopi: Exactly. Shukran for reading this.

      @Shadiat: Tell them, sister. tell them. They just keep playing into fools’ hands.
