people from Kut, an ancient town in
Iraq are celebrating. The children are
recycling spent ammo casings to raise
money for a new Mercedeslimousine. A
new portrait adorns the walls that used
to sport the likeness of Saddam.
Local man, Habib Rahman, has been selected
as the new observer to represent Iraq
at the next meeting of the World Trade
The people lined up at Mecca and Medina
no longer speak of the Prophet but they
do enthusiastically mention the World
Bank and the IMF. Parents don't name
their children Osama anymore. Now it's
“Habib” or "George"
the man who ennobled the unwashed people
of Babylon to enter the halls of the
great and mighty solons of the WTO.
Forget all that leash stuff and the
light bulb proctology from Abu Ghraib.
It’s too hard to pronounce anyway.
Never mind those pictures of dead prisoners
who could not masturbate fast enough.
(Don’t they like babes in fatigues?)
Habib is going to Geneva!
Dreaded civil wars among Sunni and Kurd
have become friendly chats over coffee
at the Bazaar. Old men in scarves debate
the intricacies of currency exchange
rates and the unreasonable markdowns
of Chilean Sea Bass. Malaysia is dumping
PDAs on the Korean market. But Habib
sends his pillow mint back to the museum
in Baghdad to replace the jewel encrusted
swords and Neolithic pottery.
Did I mention the Ba’ath towels?
