The poetry of Saddam Hussein

I saw the TV show “Interrogating Saddam” and it noted that this brutal mass murderer liked poetry.

I have a degree is Psychology and this Saddam Hussein prison poetry can be very revealing of his megalomaniacal personality.

"I am waiting" - By Saddam Hussein

My country is gone
now it is a construction site

pour into her streets

that's democracy for you
you can have it even if
you don't want it

I am now waiting for the first signs
to go up on billboards across the land
Allah's Fast Falafels-
a division of Burger King

This poetry sounds like a man who was at the end of his rope:
