Iraq’s Troubled Oil
نـفـط العـراق الـمضطـرب

By: Ghanim Anaz

From my book “Iraq: Oil & Gas Industry In The Twentieth Century”, published recently by ” Nottingham University Press”. 

 A country floating on oil
Some oil was set on fire
to get the whole oil boil
To brew a fatal stew
of war, blood and toil
Courtesy of Chefs greed,
 Ignorance and broil
