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.

In 2011, Libyans did something extraordinary. And a world followed it through a blog. This is the story of both, with poetic license, through the eyes of an American blogger with a penchant for rhyme. Follow the Libyan revolution, as seen through social media, one poem at a time.
