The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Independent Inquiry Committee Second Report

Independent Inquiry Committee Second Report


James Bredin

UN bureaucrats are in an area that is gray,
Delay, delay, and in time the scandal will blow away,
And eventually their sinister silence will pay off,
As they continue to feed like pigs at the trough.

Cotecna’s six-month contract extended several times,
No conflict of interest and definitely no crimes,
Efforts to conceal financial arrangements must be lies,
Kojo Annan had the previous day said his goodbyes.

And sensitive files that Riza shredded are long gone,
Was Kojo a consultant for Cotecna all along?
Did he meet with UN officials to further their cause?
Payments channeled here and there just because.

Why the relationship with Cotecna so well hidden?
Never mentioned at the UN and strictly forbidden,
And conflict of interest was never exposed,
And now with the silence and the subject is closed.

The second interim report says it all,
Allegations enough to make them all crawl,
Should Kofi do the right thing and resign now?
Or should the complete UN be closed down somehow?
