by Edna Yaghi
I carried my white banner
Bearing my fleur-de-lis
Across the field of Galilee.
My foes were many.
Dauphin was a heavy price for hegemony.
I won the battle, but lost the war.
Your Bourguignons captured me
And took me to our rendezvous
In the Old Market Square at Rouen.
Though my lance was made
From the feathers of the Phoenix,
My heel belonged to Achilles.
I was once a daring chatelaine
And you the Gem of Chatoyant,
The Pizza Boy in disguise
Knocking on my dungeon door.
You invited me for a cup of Turkish coffee.
Dr. Lecter, along with his silent lamb
Had a friend for dinner at the local Falafel place
Bedazzled by the Chatelaine
Mind boggled by the Gem of Chatoyant,
He sold his soul to George Spiggot
For seven wishes.
Leaving the dinner party,
We met a man with a Green Carnation.
You put me on board one of the two
Ships that go bump in the night,
Along with the Fed-ex packages,
One marked to Charles at Rouen,
The other to Dame at the Fijis,
The land of the bestowing sun.
The Albatross around my neck
Mocked me and tauntingly whispered
I may be forced to walk blindfolded
The plank that the son (a grad of the Chautauqua)
Of the Meister Carpenter made for me.
Across the bay like the Dead of the Sea
Grew the red poppies of Flanders' Field.
The crosses there marking the graves
Are too numerous to count,
Like my enemies before me.
After 14 months of interrogation
In your ecclesiastical prison at Rouen,
I watch as my funeral pyre grows brighter
Its flames beckon me.
One should not keep the Inquisitor
Or a hungry fire waiting.
Let's Blast Him off the Face of This Earth
By Edna Yaghi
Jan 31, 2003
Let us all form a personality coalition of those who hate Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and then invade Iraq with our guns, bombs and fighter jets to wipe him and Iraq off the face of the map forever.
New Year's Resolutions
By Edna Yaghi
Jan 1, 2003
The coming of a new year provides us with a challenge to better ourselves. Though, we should not need excuses to improve ourselves, many people resolve to do away with some bad habits or tendencies during the forthcoming year.
On the First Day of Christmas
by Edna Yaghi (Dec. 2, 2002)
"Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get-only with what you are expecting to give-which is everything." -Katherine Hepburn
Good Morning Palestine
by Edna Yaghi
Good morning Palestine! What a beautiful day it is today. The sun is shining, the temperature is around the seasonal average and winds are moderate and northwesterly. The seas bordering Palestine are calm.
by Edna Yaghi
While I was a child growing up in Colorado and Montana, I held the tenets of my American forefathers dear to my heart. Among the pine trees of the Rockies and gushing forest streams I lived the freedom that the early Americans had fought and died for. My heroes were George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin as well as all the unknown courageous soldiers who died on lonely battlefields.
Good Will Towards Who?
Even before Halloween was barely over, Americans had already begun to ready themselves for Thanksgiving. Even before American turkeys grace Thanksgiving tables, Christmas decorations, candy and piped Christmas music abound at every shopping center.
