Iraqi Poetry

In a post below, an Iraqi quotes a poet's line: "When I visited Tikrit I discovered fire". I haven't been able to find the poem online or in my copy of Iraqi Poetry Today. However, I did rediscover an interesting bit of advice from Mahdi Muhammed Ali:

When the city becomes a vast prison
You ought to be
      Cautious like a sharpened sword
      Simple like a grain of wheat
      And patient like a camel

(translated by Salaam Yousif)

And now I have to be patient like a camel and finish up some work that I didn't complete on Friday. See y'all in a while...
