First among equals

Thank you so much Charles Taylor,

somebody had to be first,

first among the world leaders,

but not the worst of the worst.

You’ve paved the way for the others

who condone maiming and rape.

at last there’s something like justice,

no tyrant can ever escape.

Yet something seems to be missing,

something is not really fair,

the prisons are too overcrowded

to contain tyrants like Blair;

and who is going to arrest him,

him and his henchman, Jack Straw?

A very extraordinary rendition

of some kind of flaw in the law.
