Day Two

The fall of Tripoli

As the Fighters deter the loyalist few

the crowd surged on to the “Compound”

led by Fighters the citizens started to search

Gadhafi the Coward was nowhere to be found

On the radio Gadhafi tells of a strategic withdrawal

admits gun shots and car horns we can all hear the call

after ransacking his bedrooms they burned all his tents

of the lives and destruction the Fighter laments

Adrenalin driven thoughts and movement

fuel the Fighter’s sacred quest to free his land

Today upon the sands of his ancestors

rejoicing his decision to take a stand

The Fighter’s eyes now focus

who will be the select few

to form a transitional Government

must everything be new
