Political Riddles (2003)

1)    He likes to be called the General
The head of an agency that’s federal
If you spit on the sidewalk
He’ll send the Incredible Hulk
He hates to cite truth or fact
Because he’s busy promoting his unpatriotic act
He frequents TV cameras with a smash
The first part of his last name sounds like trash

Who is he?

2)    She’s called madam secretary
The first one in recent memory
She thought it was worth playing global police
Even if it meant half-a-million Iraqis deceased
She may lack the insight
Because she’s only half-bright

Who is she?

3)    He is the ideal dutiful poodle they say
From an empire where the sun did not set one day
He adores his cowboy friend and considers him a fan
And insists: I’m nobody’s yes-man
When the cowboy says no, I say no

Who is he?

4)    He’s known as the old man
But he’s been conniving and scheming
In any way he can
The name of his game is survival
Always eliminating his rival
He’s not a man of deep thinking or letter
He deserves not his people
Because the people know better

Who is he?

5)    He had a great dream
For every race and every stream
When he said we shall overcome
All have followed and not just some

Who is he?

6)    He sees the world as black and white
His solution to every quandary is fight with might
The economy will not stimulate
Because he can’t articulate
While jobs are gone
He says, “bring ‘em on.”

Who is he?

7)    A nobody became somebody
Because everybody helped out
A brutal dictator among many
But was given lots of clout
When he attacked the right neighbor
He was glorified
But when he attacked the wrong one
The world was horrified
He was given all the dope
Until he hung himself with rope
Because he challenged his master
His fate ended in disaster

Who is he?

8)    He could have been among the greats
But was easily led toward the bait
He loved them in all sizes and shapes
But shamed his country with his lust for babes
Perhaps the smartest prez to have ever taken a quiz
But the only one who did not know
What is, is

Who is he?

9)    Admired around the world
For fighting oppression without a sword
Courageously spoke the truth
A role model to all the youth
His people were liberated
When apartheid was obliterated

Who is he?


10)    Arrogance is his middle name
Mocking everyone with no shame
When he’s not in bed with neo-cons
He’s on TV displaying his guns
Emerges from the war of fog
To reassure of steady slog
He loves new Europe and hates the old
Tragedy is, the true patriots are being sold

Who is he?

11)    His name evokes anger of all degrees
Though all too often it’s given a cold shoulder
Known all over the world as the four B’s:
Bloodsucker, bulldozer, bully, and butcher
Beckoned by a burning bush as a “a man of peace and goodwill”
But Jenin, Qibya, Sabra and Shatila, remain his mortal kill

Who is he?

12)    Resist my son non-violently resist
Speak truth to power and always insist
Occupation, tyranny, oppression won’t exist
When we all rise up and heroically persist
To face the dagger with the fist

Who is he?

13)    He shamed himself not his religion
When we all saw it on television
His twisted logic is surely at fault
And so his madness must be brought to a halt
All true Muslims must reject his call
It is not to true progress but to a deep fall

Who is he?

14)    It projects itself as having integrity
And following the rule of law
But Waco, Ruby Ridge, and the Muslim witch-hunts
Are what we all witnessed and saw
On 9/11 it was caught with its pants down
Because it was busy chasing
The innocents out of town

What is it?

15)    Swimming in oil is his affinity
Each night another bed with his corporate host
Should you believe in the trinity
He might be the Holy Ghost
He comes after the father and the son
But isn’t very much around
Though his presence is felt even when he’s gone
He’s nowhere to be found

Who is he?

To be patriotic is to be able to question government policy in times of crisis.
To be patriotic is to stand up for the Bill of Rights and the Constitution in times of uncertainty and insecurity.
To be patriotic is to  speak up against the powerful in defense of the weak and the voiceless.
To be patriotic is to be willing to pay the price to preserve our freedoms, dignity, and rights.
To be patriotic is to
challenge the abuses of the PATRIOT Act.

Selected Poems
by Sami Al-Arian

We Shall Rise

To Maya Angelou
Like the dream of the slave
You rise
And with the scream of the brave
I shall rise
In honoring the memory of your ancestors
You rise
With my stateless brothers and sisters
I shall rise
Like dust in the sunlight
You rise
And as ashes in a fiery night
I shall rise
You offend
Because of your existence
And I
For my resistance
You upset them
Recalling their past
And I
By holding steadfast
They may trod you in dirt
May cause me all the hurt
Inflict upon you excruciating pain
While they shut me up and detain
By they won't see you broken
Neither would my faith be forsaken
As you've never bowed your head
And never lowered your eyes
I'll continue to raise my fist
And hide my mother's cries
They may shoot you with their words
Cut me up with their swords
They may insult you with their eyes
Denigrate me with their lies
Trying to kill you with their hate
Bury me alive to seal my fate
But they'd certainly
Be shamed and fail
As the free chant and sing
On their march to prevail
So keep your head held high
As I follow you and try
And keep your beautiful smile
As I walk my first mile
They'll pressure and blame
Throw us in prison to control and tame
They'll exile and defame
Lynch us all or shoot and maim
Burn crosses with no shame
Target our children in a dirty game
By why is that a surprise?
Despite their evil and terror
Their falsehood and lies
You shall rise
And I shall rise
You're the black ocean
Leaping and wide
I'm the Mediterranean
With a stormy tide
Staying together
Side by side
It's no surprise
We shall rise
Surely shall rise
We together shall rise
No Longer Afraid
For us to feel "secure"
What price is being paid?
If living in freedom
Why are we afraid?
Fear is everywhere
All around
Perhaps irrational
But without any bound
You can see it on our faces
Sense it in our eyes
You can hear it in our whispers
Feel it in our cries
More>>No Longer Afraid
The Bird and The Vulture
The bird was chirping
In a house on a tree
But the vulture was angry
Because it was free
When the bird is singing
The vulture ain't safe
More>>The Bird and The Vulture
The Smile of Freedom
He looked like
A body-builder
Tall, tough, and full
All muscles and no fat
His mind was simple
Suited to follow orders
No questions asked
Acting mean and mechanical
Like any bureaucrat
More>>The Smile ...
In the Name of Freedom
In the name of freedom
We shall rule the world
To spread democracy
And set you free
In the name of freedom
We’ll descend on you
To make you civilized
Modern and orderly

Rights are not for sale

Betray their cause,
Surrender their land
To tow the line
Do not sign

Ole Jerusalem
O Ole Jerusalem
I feel your pain
I hear your cries
The light thunder
In the darkness
And the heavy rain
I see the steady bleeding
Of your wound
With its mark and stain

Patrick Henry
A revolutionary
At heart
A patriot
From the start
Loved by his country
To the core
Defended freedom
Even more
Hated arrogance
In shape and tone
Fought tyranny
With every bone
He was the conscience
Of his people
Striking fear in the enemy
And made it feeble
More>> Patrick Henry
Injustice
An overwhelming feeling
Of bitterness
Emptiness
Hopelessness
Helplessness
Sadness
Madness
Of hatred and rage
Trapped in a cage
Disappointment and anger
Continuing to linger
Wounding of dignity
Violating your virginity
More>> Injustice
