War against Gaddafi’s threat
Which raged in Libyan towns
Was also fought on Internet
Against his trolls and clowns.
On the Al Jazeera Libya blog,
Gaddafi puppets cursed;
Brave Sir Hen cut through their fog,
Made fun of them in verse.
Trolls have perished since those days,
And the freedom won;
Through Hen’s Psalms and turns of phrase:
The Freedom’s March and on.
The Wheel of History’s Libyan turns -
Sir Chicken archived them:
How Libyan Freedom had been earned
In Psalms from Book of Hen.
