That man must go now - if he says he has no shoes - then he can have mine #haiku #egypt

Anti-government protestors gathered in central Cairo wave their shoes, in a gesture of anger, after President Hosni Mubarak announces that he will not seek re-election.


  1. Humorous and poignant as well as poetic. Nice one.

  2. Wow. This is one of the best poems I have ever read. Seriously.

  3. Firm sentiment tersely expressed. Spot on.

    I'd only add that with $70 billion dollars of 'personal' wealth, he probably has more shoes than Imelda Marcos!
