Notice to the people of Iraq
You need a constitution that ensures you have rights,
And frequent leadership changes without fights,
You need order and democracy and elections,
Where you - not the party - get to choose the selections.
Also referendums and callbacks and ways to impeach,
Where politicians will all need to beg and beseech,
Because all politicians want to stay even with strife,
Power being the ultimate aphrodisiac in life.
A system to ensure the constitution is holy,
Canít be changed by someone with power monopoly,
Only by the people, for the people of Iraq,
So that no one will ever need to look back.
