A ‘hard nut’ to crack
Saudi rulers were your ‘yes-men’!
Your safe place for many a gun!
A fertile ground to dump ammunition
For killing innocents in neighboring Yemen!
Your guinea pig to nourish
Al Qaeda and terrorists to flourish
Your oil supplying backyard
But now…a human rights graveyard.
Faced with severe criticism
For backing those trampling protectors of journalism
You find yourself inextricably
Between the devil and deep blue sea.
Whether to support the royal monarch
Or accept people’s demands and leave him in the dark
You’re confused and your voice croaks
Compelled to respond to media attacks
For he has become a stumbling block
A very ‘hard nut’ to crack….
The number rises…
Killing of Palestinians never stops…
The young helpless homeless
The brave martyrs
Succumb to zionist soldiers’ bullets
The powerful Israeli zealots
But their struggle continues
Despite loss of lives
Every drop of blood
Yearning for the motherland
Will go down fighting
And hopefully looking
For final victory
And end of tyranny
