Cairo Egypt (Acrostic Only)

Hi all,

I am posting this for Acrostic Only. The recent news of President Mubarak's resignation makes this poem poignant.

Cries in night
Arresting the world
Imploring the rich
Rising in numbers
Outcry for justice

Egyptian blood spilled
Galvanized in spirit
Youth stand strong
President loses control
Time for change

Right on! Bravo TWG, you hit the nail on the head and then some. Now let us hope the Military continue to heed what the people want.

My prayer is a better outcome for the people. As dictators go..it wasn't rosy, but he was an ally. Sadly, the opposition groups to be concerned with desire the destruction of Israel and America..let's hope the peoples needs become the priority?
