Egyptians protest with poetry
The Daily Dish has the text of a poem Egyptian protesters have been chanting during this week of upheaval. “To the Tyrants of the World,” by Abu al-Qasim al-Shabihas has become a rallying cry:
Wait, don’t let the spring, the clearness of the sky and the shine of the morning light fool you…
Because the darkness, the thunder rumble and the blowing of the wind are coming toward you from the horizon
Beware because there is a fire underneath the ash
