Egypt


Giant versus dwarf

When I was a child I
Read Gulliver’s Travels
And how the Dwarfs
Tied him down to earth
With threads, and thought I
As a child can this really
Happen to a giant,
And why should an elf
Or a dwarf try, but in vain,
To stretch itself To compete
With a giant? !
Why should it try
To inflate itself,
Inferiority complex
Or it wants to be over
Its size! ! ! !
But our GIANT is NOT
LIKE any other
Giant; it is not only a matter
Of size; our giant digs deep in
Culture, HISTORY and creativity,

And the dwarf is nothing
Except in having a lot
Of Money so it decided,
It decided By dirty plots,
With other greedy enemies
To destroy the GIANT.
But the giant will always
BE A GIANT and the dwarf
Can never exceed its limits
And transfer itself to a giant.
This is all the story of
Egypt elderly sister of
All Arabs: OUR GIANT,
And the dwarf: is all its small
Enemies not only in size
But in mental capability.

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
