Blesséd be thy Name

A satire about Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Written in heroic couplets as the Rape of the Lock, but with a tone more along the lines of Swift.

     Blessed President, Red Water to Red Sand,
Whose mighty Power rules the Ancient Land
Where Kings are buried and Tombs raise high,
And in the Sand, fallen Fortunes do lie,
Octavian's Doxy and Sultan's Wife,
The Theatre for primordial Strife,
A Scarlet Queen and the inverted Names
Copious Trespasses, but absent Shames,
A kingdom Sir Blesséd may call his own,
By feigning Mandate, he mounted his throne.

The End
