Do they really?

Do they really want to try Saif,
son of Muammar, at the ICC
on a list of charges
of crimes against humanity?
They say they do but when you think
a proper trial would not bode well
for NATO or the NTC
whose rebel forces caused a Hell
that saw Saif’s father, nearly seventy,
fatally buggered with a blade.
Do they really want to expose
crimes against humanity they made?
No doubt the English-educated
Saif, with a price upon his head,
will in unknown circumstances
like his father, end up dead!
